His second place in the second downhill race of the IPC World Cup Finals gives him an overall third place at the end of the 2009-10 World Cup series.

He finished nearly two seconds behind the USA's Joe Tomkins, who had the advantage of competing on home snow.

It shows Rose is in top form as he looks to bring back medals from the Paralympic Games, which begin on March 12.
