Ganong 12th at Lake Louise Super-G
Backing up his top-10 Saturday, Travis Ganong led three Land Rover U.S. Alpine Ski Team athletes into the points, finishing 12th in the first FIS Ski World Cup super-G of the season at Lake Louise, Alberta, Sunday.
Austria’s Matthias Mayer won, followed by Dominik Paris of Italy in second, and for the second straight day, there was a tie for third - this time between Vincent Kriechmayr of Austria and Mauro Caviezel of Switzerland.
Ryan Cochran-Siegle was 21st, followed by Steven Nyman in 22nd. Thomas Biesemeyer, Bryce Bennett, Sam Dupratt and Kyle Negomir also started for the men but did not finish in the top 30.
Up next, the men head to home soil for the classic Birds of Prey World Cup race - a favorite by many on the circuit - at Beaver Creek for three days of downhill, super-G and giant slalom races Dec. 6-8.
