Mario Lechner of Austria closely won the Junior Men's class despite an injury to his knee that he suffered while warming up on Saturday (only one point split the difference between 1st and 3rd place). France's Charlotte Durif Won the Junior Women's class and is unbeaten so far this year in the European Youth Series.
