Romain Paulhan wins French cup DH #2 at Les Carroz and leads series

11791101_10206383529654510_138040826_oRomain reports – The FRENCH CUP round 2 was in LES CARROZ near to Chamonix valley. 7th in quali and 3rd in Final at LES ANGLES round #1, it was important to ride well to win some points for the overall.

With a super feeling on my OPERATOR all the week end, a nice second place in quali with a really smooth run, whip and chain less section I felt confident for the final.

Sunday morning training was good, a crash on last turn but without consequences, I felt fastest on my bike.

So I did it, full run on my lines, smooth, fast and with a big smile under my helmet I crossed the line with the best TIME and 5.93 sec ahead ! JUST INSANE.

Pretty happy and so stocked to recall the super feeling on my KONA, I felt ready for MONT SAINT ANNE this saturday.

Currently FIRST OVERALL FRENCH CUP, I hope to be as effective in Montgenevre for the final on 15 August.
