Concluded the fourth round of the “IXS European Downhill Cup”
The Trentino athlete Venturi Patrick, after finishing Saturday’s qualifying in first position, in the Sunday race run closes second, 3 hundredths from the first, recovering in the lower part of the course over 2.5 seconds that he paid for the first intermediate caused by two big mistakes which compromised the final victory.
Thanks to this second place and Semmering’s seventh last month, he leaps to the top of the championship by a wide margin over second. The Championship final will be held in Pila in mid-September.
Now patrick will have to face long away matches for the World Cup commitments, he will be already busy next weekend in Lenzerheide in Switzerland, and the following weekend in Vallnord (Andorra) always for the World Cup.
Over the past few weeks he has participated in the “Absolute European Championship” in Maribor for the assignment of the European champion jersey cat. Junior, at the first experience called up by the national team where he raced to defend the national colors, he concluded in seventh place and second Italian.
At his World Cup debut in Leogang, however, he did not go very well in prohibitive conditions with mud and rain that made the dreaded Austrian route even more difficult, tenth in the first intermediate, he did not qualify for the Final due to a disastrous fall. but without consequences before the finish line, with a real “front flip”, which relegated him to thirtieth position.
