Daniel Hubmann – clear overall World Cup winner after victory today

Posted on | October 10, 2010 | Category: News

Daniel Hubmann left nothing to chance in the World Cup Final PostFinance sprint today. Needing only to finish 17th or above to take overall victory, and that only if Matthias Müller won, he nevertheless pulled out all the stops and won the race by 9 seconds. Simone Niggli, simply unbeatable at the moment, won the women’s race by 14 seconds.

Matthias Müller did gain equal second place in the race along with Great Britain’s Graham Gristwood, and this cemented his second placing in the overall standings. Thierry Gueorgiou was fourth today, only 13 seconds down on the winning time, ensuring that he finished third overall.

In the streets of Geneva, Helena Jansson again took second place to Simone. Helena has had a very good and consistent season, and finishes in a clear second place in the overall standings. Third place overall was very much ‘up for grabs’, and it was taken by Denmark’s Maja Alm who finished fourth today, a good reward for a season with a marked improvement in her standard. But third in today’s race was another up-and-coming Dane, Ida Bobach, who still has one more year as a junior but is already demonstrating her class in the senior races after a string of Junior World Championship successes.
