3 - 10 december 2023: bobsleigh and skeleton world cup
La Plagne’s Olympic bobsleigh track, considered to be one of the world’s most technical tracks, will be the playground for the world’s top bobsledders during this event. Women’s team Margot Boch and Carla Sénéchal, the only French bobsleigh team currently competing, will be playing at home on the 19 bends of La Plagne’s ice serpent. To be confirmed: the participation of another two local competitors, Lucas Defayet and Agathe Bessard, who is recovering from an injury during the last world championships.
Programme for the event:
3 - 7/12: training
8/12: men’s and women’s skeleton
9/12: 2-man bobsleigh and women’s monobob
10/12: 4-man bobsleigh and 2-woman bobsleigh
“It’s a real opportunity to compete in a world cup event at home, on the track where I grew up. I can’t wait to share this moment with my family, friends and sponsors. It isn’t always easy for them to travel to events, so we have all put this date in our diaries! It is also an opportunity to meet our supporters, to hear them encouraging us at the start and see the tricolour flags waving… That will definitely give us an extra impetus! We know that people will be expecting more from us at this event, especially after finishing 5th in the world championships last season, but we will remain focused on our goal which is to get as close as possible to the podium. I would personally be so proud to be on the podium, it would be an amazing memory to share with my dad and my granddad, who both used to compete in the bobsleigh and who passed their passion for the sport on to me.”
