After a great final race in Shanghai, finishing first, Anthony Avella (Fra) won the World Skate Cross Series 2013 season and became 2013 Skate Cross World Champion for the first time in his career. Before starting the final, he was sure to be the champion already, as his rivals for the victory were all surprisingly kicked out in the quarter finals ; but A.Avella found the motivation to win the race and could forget his second places in Rome and Moscow WSX main events.

Just behind him, the 2012 title holder, Ilya Sukhenko (Rus) finished on the second step of the podium 2013. It is still a good result for him this season, and he will be back next season to bring the title back to Russia in 2014!

On the third step of the podium, Kevin Quintin (Fra), world champion 2011, did a very good start this season, with 2 victories in Rome and Lausanne, but because of an injury in Moscow, he couldn't skate until Shanghai, and was not 100% ready to get the title back.

15 countries were represented in the WSX finals in Shanghai ! The men's competition was very tough and everybody wanted to win. In the qualifications, the suspense was high, as the best time has been beaten several times, and finally, Anthony Avella (Fra) did the fastest run in 22,656 sec.

In the finals, the first big surprises arrived in the quarter finals ; the first one was from Kevin Quintin (Fra) who lost his balance after a contact on the first obstacle, and then couldn't come back on his opponents. The second one, from Flavien Du Peloux (Fra) who was first and did a mistake loosing his speed in the hoops. Then Ilya Sukhenko (Rus) finished only 3rd in his quarter final.
With all his main rivals out, A.Avella was ensured to come back to France with the WSX 2013 title, and was with no doubt ready on the final's start line with less pressure. He controlled the race from the beginning to the end, and passed the finish line in front of CJ Wellsmore (Aus), second, and Jim De Paoli (Sui), third. Pierre Lelievre (Fra) took the 4th place.

Jessica Billard finally made it !

 

Jessica Billard (Fra) did maybe her worst time trials of the season in Lyon (5th place) but came back for the finals with the right motivation to show that she can dominate a such difficult track. The 2013 champion of France was in the right trajectory to avoid the crash of her opponents in the first U turn, involving Marjorie Phlippoteau, Mathilde Monneron and Amandine Condroyer, and took directly a confortable 20m gap, which she controlled perfectly to pass the finish line in first position. Behind her, the fight was very hard, and the fastest of the time trials, Marjorie Phlippoteau could take the lead over M.Monneron, and keep the second place in front of the current world n.1, who finished 3rd, in front of A.Condroyer, 4th.
