Four in the Top 30 in Bormio Super-G
Four Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes finished in the top 30 in the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Bormio super-G on Thursday. Ryan Cochran-Siegle led the way with a 13th-place finish among the strong men's field.
“Today was another challenging day, surprisingly icy considering most of the course was set outside of the downhill track,” commented Cochran-Siegle. “It’s been a difficult start to the super-G season, so in a way getting a top 15 is a little bit of a win. I also recognize I am more capable than that, so it’s important to not get complacent.”
In addition to Cochran-Siegle’s performance, Erik Arvidsson raced to another strong result in 21st place, with teammate Kyle Negomir close behind in 24th and Jared Goldberg in 29th.
“I felt like I had some mistakes today and wasn’t able to execute the way I wanted to but it was still good to see that I can not be very proud of my skiing and still be in the points,” said Negomir. “Super happy with the skiing today we knew it would be possible to throw it in there because the snow was good," said Arvidsson.
Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team athlete Travis Ganong finished in 40th and River Radamus and Bryce Bennett did not finish. Regardless, the men’s speed team was very excited to see a strong performance by their teammates coming from the back.
“It was so much fun to see Erik ski to his potential this weekend, I'm so proud to see how much work he’s put into getting here and have it start to pay off. Looking forward to carrying this momentum with our young group of men for the rest of the season,” said Negomir.
The Stifel U.S. Alpine Ski Team will reset over the next weekend and then head to the next World Cup - the slalom in Garmisch after the new year.
