In the final super-G of the regular World Cup season, the Stifel U.S. Ski Team men punched three into the top 15 with a career best result by Kyle Negomir in 12th, Ryan Cochran-Siegle 11th and Sam Morse in 14th. 

“I always heard that the Americans loved this place, but seeing it in person was on another level,” said Negomir. 

The conditions were not quite as sunny as the day prior with visibility problems moving the start lower, making for a short and sweet super-G. The speed men, riding a wave of confidence from the unreal team result day on Saturday, knew they could make another splash in the super-G. Ryan Cochran-Siegle skied solidly to squeeze the top 10 for the majority of the race, but ultimately ended in 11th. 

The highlight result of the day went to Negomir for his career best result, topping his career best from the downhill just the day before, skiing into the top 15 in 12th. 

“After a tough last month it was very nice to come into the finish and not be in last place for a change,” said Negomir. 

Sam “Moose” Morse also had an exciting weekend, landing in 14th position. Morse had his best result of the season the day before in 10th and this 14th place marked his best super-G result ever. 

“Seeing everyone ski with so much confidence and enjoy this hill really helped me to feel comfortable here,” said Negomir. 

Jared Goldberg also cracked the top 30 in 23rd place. Stifel U.S. Ski Team athletes River Radamus, Bryce Bennett, Tristan Lane and Jack Smith also raced, finishing in 37th, 40th, 50th and 51st, respectively. The winner of the race was Austrian Vincent Kriechmayr, second place went to Canadian Jeffrey Read and third place was a tie with Italian Dominik Paris and Swiss skier Marco Odermatt. 

The speed team has had a strong season overall finding more success in the super-G discipline and more consistency in downhill. The team will end the regular speed season with two men in the top 10 overall downhill rankings and two men in the top 25 super-G rank. The speed team is also in fifth for the downhill Nations Cup standings. 

The next and final World Cup speed races for the men will be at World Cup Finals in Saalbach, Austria in March.
