From Umhausen, AUT
Feb. 15, 2020 – Patrick Pigneter & Florian Clara finished the FIL Natural Track World Cup season in style, cruising to a nearly one second victory in Umhausen to clinch the 2019/2020 World Cup title.
The Italians came into the second heat .33 behind the Russian team of Pavel Porshnev & Ivan Lazarev, the only team in the race with a chance to take the season title from the Italians. But the Russians needed Pigneter & Clara to crash out or otherwise not finish their second heat if they wanted the title.
The Italians did not give Porshnev & Lazarev the chance, not only finishing their second run but doing so over a second faster than anyone else in the heat on their way to a .97 second victory and their ninth title in 11 years.
Porshnev & Lazarev finished both the race and the season in second place, 100 points back in the season standings.
Finishing third both in the race and in the season points was the Italian team of Patrick & Matthias Lambacher.
Aleksandr Egorov & Peter Popov finished fourth in both the race and season standings, with Fabian & Simon Achenrainer finishing fifth in the race, and Stanislav Kovshik & Ilia Tarasov sixth.
