Lead World Cup 2018: Jessica Pilz and Domen Škofic win last stage in Xiamen

di

The last stage of the Lead World Cup 2018 took place in Xiamen in China last weekend and was won by Jessica Pilz and Domen Škofic. Janja Garnbret and Jakob Schubert won the Lead World Cup 2018, Jessica Pilz and Stefano Ghisolfi took silver, Jain Kim and Škofic and Romain Desgranges bonze. The Speed World Cup 2018 was won by Anouck Jaubert and Bassa Mawem.

The curtain fell on the Lead World Cup 2018 last weekend at Xiamen in China, won as previously reported one stage ahead of schedule by Janja Garnbret and Jakob Schubert. Season’s silver had also already been secured by Jessica Pilz and Stefano Ghisolf, while Jain Kim had won bronze, but in the men’s event the 3rd place was still up for grabs.

Domen Škofic won the seventh and last stage and, in doing so, returned to his winning form after a two-year podium absence to end the season on a high. Last to climb, the Slovenian fell just below the top off the same hold as Italy’s Stefano Ghisolfi and the two were separated on countback, while Hyunbin Min finished third. Skofic’s victory catapulted him somewhat unexpectedly tie for overall bronze with France’s Romain Desgranges.

Interestingly, this season’s winner Schubert failed to qualify for the finals for the first time since October 2014. That’s something like 25 Lead World Cup Finals in a row… How things might have turned out in the overall rankings had the finals in Wujiang a week previously not been cancelled is anyone’s guess, but the fact of the matter is that this season the 27-year-old proved unbeatable: winner of the Lead World Cup for the fourth time, winner of the Lead World Championship, Combined World Champion and Combined World Cup winner. It's nigh impossible to do any better.

As previously mentioned, in the women’s event Garnbret, Pilz and Kim had already secured 1st, 2nd and 3rd place, and in Xiamen Pilz climbed to victory for the second time ever. After unlocking the key and initiating her victory march earlier this season in Chamonix, and then winning the World Championship in Innsbruck, Pilz managed to beat Garnbret for a third time in 2018, once again by the smallest of margins. Both topped out in the finals and the Austrian took victory on countback to semi-finals in which she claimed the routes only top. Akiyo Noguchi proved her timeless dexterity and placed third.

The 2018 Speed World Cup drew to a close as the 8th event really did go down to the wire, with four male athletes gunning for the overall title. In the end Bassa Mawem climbed fastest of all to win both the stage in China and season’s gold, and he was joined on the podium by Dmitrii Timofeev and Danyil Boldyrev. Mawem’s victory demonstrated how quick France has become in recent years; his team-mate Anouck Jaubert had secured her second consentire gold last weekend. The women’s event was won by Susanti Rahayu who, in beating Jaubert, took season’s silver, while Iuliia Kaplina took bronze.
