After winning his Round of 32 Final, Grimus lined up against three Frenchmen in his Quarter Final, finishing third, in what was always going to be a tough challenge.
“No doubt I think they worked together, and so they should, but I had a really good run,” Grimus said.
“Ninth overall was a good move forward for me. I adapted well and felt comfortable in front of my skis, so I’m really looking forward to the next event in Arosa now.”
The men’s event was taken out by Bastien Midol of France.
Fellow OWIA/NSWIS athlete Sami Kennedy-Sim achieved her best result since returning from injury, finishing 14th overall in the Ladies event.
“I know it’s a step in the right direction and I am so ready now for Arosa,” Kennedy-Sim said.
The final was a tight affair, with reigning World Champion Andrea Limbacher claiming victory.
