Ricardo Adarraga has been fourth in the Masters
of Verbier Speed beating once again his record of Spain leaving it in
213.56 km / h. Simone Origone of Italy won the last race with a record
of 219.28 km / h, new lap record of Verbier.
Second was the Swiss Philippe May to 218.65 km /
h followed by Czech Radek Cernak with 214.55 km / h.
The Speed Master is the most important
competition of the year as being outside the rules of FIS, will reach
speeds exceeding 200 km / h.
Adarraga Ricardo said at the end of the race,
"This time everything went well.
The approach to competition has been good. I've had three races
almost perfect. All at more than 200.
Especially the semifinal has been impressive. He finished second
ahead of Origone, being beaten only by May.
Yet he was quite clear that Simone had
prepared the final blow for the final, so the fourth is more than you
expect. Also beat the record of
in Verbier has a special value for me. A 210 in Verbier by its
difficulty is equivalent to 230 or even 240 in Les Arcs. There is no
doubt that after the disappointment of Wednesday at the FIS World Cup, I
could not finish the season better: Fifteenth in the FIS World Cup,
fourth in the Masters and record Speed of Spain in Verbier. "
