Canadian sets good times at Val d'Isere

Date Posted: 19th Jan 2007
Category:  Val d'Isere News
Canadian skier, Erik Guay, has thrilled people enjoying a ski holiday in Val d'Isere by recording the fastest ever time for a World Cup downhill training run.

Guay managed to tame tricky conditions on the Oreiller-Killy course to post a remarkable time of one minute 39.43 seconds.

His time was nearly half a second faster than his closest rival, Pierre-Emmanuel Dalcin, competing in his home country.

Hans Grugger, from Austria, tied with Dalcin for second spot with his fellow countryman, Fritz Strobl, making it into fourth.

The top five was completed by American downhill skier Bode Miller.

Michael Walchhofer, who just a few weeks ago was setting records of his own in Bormio, could only manage 15th place this time out.

The chance for those on a Val d'Isere ski holiday to witness such impressive speeds on the piste was all the more fortunate, as the competition had originally been scheduled to take place in Chamonix.
