Serwa seals double, Andreas Matt best in men's 2nd race
Canada’s Kelsey Serwa made it a perfect two wins out of two Sunday when she led the ladies' ski cross final from start to finish to secure her second World Cup victory in as many days in Innichen / San Candido (ITA).
The 2011 ski cross world champion followed up her golden start to the season in Saturday’s race with a dominating display on Sunday, which saw her win the qualification round, the quarter-final, the semifinal and then the final.
“It’s a fantastic start to the season,” said Serwa, who will be taking the red World Cup leader’s bib home with her for Christmas. “In the final I got out in front and I stayed in front all the way. I had the confidence from qualifying and the (technicians) nailed the wax once again. As soon as I started gliding, I just took off. It was great – I wish every race was like that!”
The Swiss duo of Sanna Luedi and Katrin Mueller were second and third.
There was fierce competition on the men’s side. Austria’s Andreas Matt took the win, ahead of Russia’s Egor Korotkov and Switzerland’s Alex Fiva.
Kerwa now leads the ski cross World Cup rankings with a clean slate while Russia's Egor Korotkov who took 2nd in both races in Innichen is the men's leader.
