Inside Edge: Sign up for the Junior Race Series

Print Article

Big week of World Cup action — The ladies moved to Lake Louise last week for their speed series.

Lindsey Vonn sat this one out due to a knee injury, but tech specialist Mikaela Shiffrin carried the water for the United States, finishing ninth and fourth in the two downhills events and winning the Super G by 0.75 seconds.

The Super G win made her the only World Cup athlete in history to post wins in all six events. Two other U.S. women were in the downhill points.

Meanwhile, the men moved to Beaver Creek to race on the amazing Birds of Prey venue. Steve Nyman and Bryce Bennett tied for ninth in downhill. The U.S. put five men in the points in the Super G, led by Travis Ganong in 15th and Ryan Cochran-Siegle in 17th.

The series wrapped up with giant slalom where we put another four men in the points, led by Ted Ligety in 8th, with Tommy Ford 15th, Brian McLaughlin 18th and Cochran-Siegle placed 22nd.

The circuit moves back to Europe this week.
