Bennett Ninth in Alpine Combined
Bryce Bennett (Squaw Valley, Calf.) picked up his fifth career FIS Ski World Cup top-10 result in alpine combined, leading four Americans into the top 20 Friday in Wengen, Switzerland.
“The top 10 thing is getting kind of old,” said Bennett, who finished ninth. “I knew after Bormio (where he finished 19th)… I was pretty upset with how that slalom run went and I knew that I had some better slalom skiing. I thought I did a better job (today). I had a little trouble up top, but I kept it rolling pretty well.”
Ted Ligety (Park City, Utah), who won the alpine combined in Wengen in 2014, just missed the top 10, finishing 11th Friday. Ryan Cochran-Siegle (Starksboro, Vt.) was 18th and Jared Goldberg (Holladay, Utah) finished 19th.
France’s Victor Muffat-Jeandet won his first World Cup race Friday. Pavel Trikhichev of Russia landed his first World Cup podium in second, as Italy’s Peter Fill was third.
Up next, the men tackle the Lauberhorn downhill in Wengen Saturday.
