Cyprien Sarrazin, between technique and speed
Born in Gap, Cyprien Sarrazin started skiing at the age of six in the resort of SuperDévoluy where his father was a ski instructor in the winter and a mountain bike instructor in the summer. Rather daredevil, Cyprien Sarrazin was trained at the ski school of Barcelonnette. He participated three times in the junior world championships. He finished 3rd in the European Giant Cup in 2016-2017, which earned him a spot on the World Cup.
His next season was highlighted by a first win in the Alta Badia parallel giant in December 2016 as well as a 10th place finish in Aspen.
Cyprien returned to the podium in Alta Badia in 2019, this time in a classic giant where he finished 2nd behind Kristoffersen after finishing 22nd in the 1st run with bib 35.
Cyprien ranks regularly in the French Championships, he is vice-champion of downhill and combined in 2016, giant slalom champion, vice-champion of combined and finished 3rd in Super-G in 2017. Finally, he is 3rd in the downhill at the event in Auron for the 2022 French Championships and the big winner of the Super-G and combined event that same year.
He will want to debate this in Courchevel in front of a French audience that is bound to be sympathetic to his cause.
His two strongest disciplines are giant and combined but he is also capable of good results in other disciplines such as downhill and super-G!
