Radamus 15th in Kranjska Gora Giant Slalom
In the first day of the two-day giant slalom series in Kranjksa Gora, Slovenia, River Radamus led the way for the Americans with a 15th place finish.
The conditions were warm with very soft snow underfoot with course workers salting the course the day prior to try and keep a strong surface for the World Cup racers.
Marco Odermatt of Switzerland won the race to clinch the overall World Cup title for the second year in a row. He also extended his lead over Kristoffersen in the giant slalom standings with 140 points to go with two more races: Sunday's giant slalom and the World Cup Finals GS. In second place was French skier Alexis Pinturault, and in third was Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen.
George Steffey (37th) and Brian McLaughlin (45th) also raced but did not qualify for a second run. Tommy Ford did not finish.
The giant slalom men will now look to Sunday for another crack at the giant slalom.
