Lead World Cup in Valence, France


75 athletes are currently battling it out this morning in the 8th stage of the Lead World Cup 2011 in Valence, France.

All eyes are obviously on the current leaders, Jakob Schubert from Austria (by now unreachable, and the real question is if he will beat his record breaking 7 wins in 7 competitions or whether Ramon Julien Puigblanque will manage to contrast him sharply...) and Mina Markovic on her quest to win her first overall World Cup. The Slovenian will have to watch out above all for Jain Kim from Korea who is ably defending last year's title and trails only 70 points behind. This competition in France, prior to the final rush in Kranj and Barcellona, is more important than ever.
