Sydney Whitewater Festival – C1 Men’s Slalom Winners Run and Results
2019 Sydney Whitewater Festival, Penrith (Australia) – Top 3 K1 Men’s Slalom Winners Run and top 10 Results.
The men’s C1 was won by Britain’s three-time Olympic silver medallist David Florence, who was thrilled about the first win of the season ahead of France’s World Championships medallist Martin Thomas and Italy’s Raffaello Ivaldi. France’s 2016 Olympic Champion Denis Gargaud Chanut finished sixth.
For me coming here was to do a race and to start getting back into that mode and that it went so well straight-off is perfect. To win is the ultimate and I was very pleased with that. There’s such a strong field and so many of the top guys are over here training and it was like World Cup standard,” David Florence said.
“To get a win was really pleasing but mostly I was pleased with the way I went about my runs,” Florence said.
“Every run I felt pretty focussed, pretty concentrated the whole way down. I made a silly mistake and touched one of the easy gates but fortunately for me the other guys didn’t quite deliver in the final and it was still good enough with a two seconds penalty to get on the top, so I’m very, very pleased.”
