Gourley finishes second in dramatic race

Sunday, 28 February 2016

The overall winners of the 2015-16 IPC Alpine Skiing World Cup in giant slalom have been decided after a series of tantalisingly close and dramatic races last week at Aspen Mountain, USA.

In the men’s standing, VIS athlete Mitchell Gourley and Russia’s world champion Aleksei Bugaev were neck-and-neck after the first run, both registering the same time.

However it was Bugaev (1:43.30) that emerged triumphant to claim his third giant slalom win of the season and make sure of his place at the top of the World Cup rankings.

Gourley (1:44.38) held on for second ahead of Austria’s Christian Bernhard Schneider (1:44.96).
