Saskia drove a text book perfect cones course. After number 11 she had an extra twist on her way to gate 12, as a result of which she crossed the finish line a fraction too late and received 0.03 penalty points. Marion Vignaud started after Saskia but succumbed under the pressure. After two balls had rolled, the last gate also had to suffer and that was just too much. She sank to the silver. Kelly Houtappels also left all the balls up and only received a 2.9 penalty for exceeding the time. That was enough for the bronze medal.
