River Radamus took home his second national championship title in two days, winning the giant slalom at the Toyota U.S. Alpine Championships presented by Stifel at Sun Valley Resort.

The course conditions were firm, with the hill setting up nicely overnight and producing a fair and fast hill for the more than 80 racers. The course set was tricky first run, which whittled the second run down to only 56 athletes. Radamus ran bib one—the same bib he wore in the day prior’s victorious super-G—and proved it successful once again, taking the lead and never giving it up throughout the day.

With a little easier set second run, many of the men punched in fast times. Hometown Sun Valley racer Ryder Sarchett, who skis for the University of Colorado Boulder, clocked the fastest second run to clinch fourth place and the best result for a junior racer. 

Stifel U.S. Ski Team athletes swept both the overall podium and the junior podium. Behind Radamus was Bridger Gile in second and George Steffey in third. Jay Poulter took second on the junior podium behind Sarchett, and Camden Palmquist was third.
