Three American Men in Top 20 in World Championships Super-G
The sun was shining down on the Courchevel track once again, making way for a strong day of super-G racing. Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete River Radamus, fresh off his fourth place finish in the alpine combined, once again led the way for the men’s team, placing 16th from bib 34.
“This was definitely more of a speed skiers super-G, but mindset was the same: I am always skiing to win and be on the podium,” said Radamus. “I felt like I skied with the right approach and attacked as hard as I could.”
Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes Kyle Negomir and Ryan Cochran-Siegle were right behind Radamus, in 17th and 18th place, respectively. Travis Ganong finished in 30th.
“I am satisfied with the skiing more than the time," said Negomir after his first career World Championship start. "You had to be really aggressive on this course and in between my mistakes I was happy with my skiing."
It was an exciting day for team Canada with James Crawford taking home the gold medal by just 0.01 hundredths of a second above favorite Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway. Third place went to French skier Alexis Pinturault as he comes off his gold medal-winning alpine combined event.
The women's downhill is up next on Saturday, Feb. 11. There will be a men’s and women’s training run on Feb. 10.
