French slalom specialist Jean-Baptiste Grange has decided to postpone his return to competition. As a result, he will skip the home slalom in Val d’Isère this week.

"I do not feel 100% ready yet even if the development is going in the right direction but unfortunately it would be a bit too premature for Val d’Isère. The Face on Bellevarde is a challenge both physically and technically. I do not have enough training days under my belt to be competitive. That's why I prefer to continue to train and prepare myself properly before returning to competion," explained Grange his decision.
