Bankes and Vaultier keep momentum
In a World Cup winter with just a handful of top-level races, the world's best make sure to stay in shape competing in the Europa Cup.
And it seems, that the French equipe is in perfect shape right now. In Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy, Charlotte Bankes (FRA) and teammate Pierre Vaultier took home the win in a strong and deep field.
While Bankes secured her third consecutive Europa Cup triumph ahead of Raffaella Brutto (ITA) and newly-wed Zoe Gillings-Brier (GBR), the 2014 Olympic champion earned a back-to-back win after his victory in the second race in Puy St Vincent the week before.
Lucas Eguibar (SPA) and Jerome Lymann (SUI) rounded out the men's podium.
