Grasgehren to host next FIS World Cup Ski Cross Event
The fifth Ski Cross Race on the FIS Freestyle World Cup calendar will take place next Saturday in Grasgehren/Obermaiselstein (Germany). The skicross run in Grasgehren, with a total length of 1200 meters, is the longest one in the World Cup. "The track is very long, very exhausting! As World Cup leader, I will surely have pressure on me for being the favorite. I am happy about this role, and I look forward to meet my thoughest competitiors here, my teammate Patrick Koller included", said Andy Matt (AUT), current leader of the overall World Cup.
