RENAUD JAY (FRA) 3RD IN SPRINT
After the joy of podiums with his team mates, this year in Dresden with Lucas Chanavat and in Planica 2016 with Baptiste Gros, Renaud enjoyed climbing alone on a World Cup podium !
This special format was a first try and a good one for the French sprinter. The skiers were sprinting on a 700m track climbing the final part of the alpine slope in Åre.
Finishing 5th in the qualifications, Renaud started the day in a good way, making his way to the final where he got his firs ever individual World Cup podium in third position !
