From La Plagne, FRA
(Mar. 7, 2021) – Canada’s Lonnie Bissonnette won the season finale in La Plagne, while Sebastian Westin took the overall title.
Bissonnette trailed by .07 after one heat, with Great Britain’s Corie Mapp leading the way. Westin sat third, only .11 out of the lead, while World Cup leader Christopher Stewart sat back in sixth. On the second run it was Stewart putting down the strongest run of the heat. He held onto the lead for a couple of sleds, picking off Hermann Ellmauer and Arturs Klots, but Sweden’s Westin was only .04 slower than Stewart, and that was enough to take the lead.
Lonnie Bissonnette edged out Westin on his second run, giving him a .02 advantage over the Swede with only Mapp to go. Mapp couldn’t answer, he was fourth quickest in the heat and fell to third to give Bissonnette the gold and Westin the silver.
Westin’s silver was also enough to give him the World Cup title over Stewart by just seven points. The title was his first. Stewart finished the season in second place, just ahead of Bissonnette and Switzerland’s Frei Jones.
