The highlight of the 2022/23 FIS Ski Cross season are the World Championships, which are being held in Georgia. From February 24 to 26, 2023, the ski cross athletes competed for the medals in the Small Caucasus in Bakuriani. After three days of strong wind, bad conditions on the course and very long waiting, Sunday, February 26, 2023 was finally the day that brought us a blue sky, only slight wind and two medals for Elan Ski Cross athletes - gold and bronze!
An exciting final run, some problems at the start, but high speed after the turn jump opened the door for 22-year-old Italian Simone Deromedis to run away from the others. Simone, who had never won a World Cup race before, took his first victory and became the new World Champion in ski cross. It was also his first race after recovering from his collarbone injury. In addition, Sweden's Erik Mobärg confirmed his great performance with third place.
