Cochran-Siegle Sixth, Ganong Top 20 in Wengen Super-G
In the Wengen, Switzerland Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup super-G, Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Ryan-Cochran Siegle skied to a fast sixth-place finish, his best super-G result of the season.
“Today's result is good from where I have been at," said 2022 Olympic super-G medalist Cochran-Siegle. "I am trying to build more confidence and become more of a competitor."
The Swiss fans came out in the thousands to cheer on the racers on the infamous Lauberhorn track. The conditions were variable as the sun filtered in and out causing spring-like snow conditions on a straight-set course. There were many course holds as the weather became a larger force for those who ran later.
“I think they did an impressive job with the challenging weather we have had,” said Cochran-Siegle. “I think the fact that Aleksander Kilde ran 15 and was able to come down into first was impressive.”
Norwegian skier Aleksander Kilde continued his hot streak of speed skiing with the win on the Lauberhorn track. Swiss skier Stefan Rogentin took second place on home turf with teammate Marco Odermatt adding more podiums to his name in third place.
Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Travis Ganong was the next best U.S. skier and ended in the top 20, in 17th place. Erik Arvidsson finished in 35th, Kyle Negomir in 39th, Bryce Bennett in 40th and Jared Goldberg did not finish.
The men will switch to downhill on Saturday, followed by a slalom on Sunday. The women’s speed team is in action with two super-Gs this weekend in St. Anton, Austria.
