Cochran-Siegle, Ganong, Top 10 In Kvitfjell Downhill

By Mackenzie Moran
March, 5 2022

Olympic silver-medalist Ryan Cochran-Siegle once again led the U.S. men, finishing fifth in the Kvitfjell downhill on Saturday, March 5, behind Switzerland’s Niels Hintermann and Beat Feuz, who tied for third. Travis Ganong punched a top 10 finish, tying for eighth with France’s Maxence Muzaton. Day two of the Kvitfjell Norway downhill saw Dominik Paris at the top of the podium, followed by Aleksander Aamodt Kilde in second.  

The Olympiabakken track once again proved to be a fair course, where any man could punch their way into the top of the field no matter their starting position. Similar to Friday’s downhill competition, multiple racers snagged top 10 finishes from high bib numbers.

“It’s a challenging hill where every turn matters, so to do well here means you have to contend from top to bottom,” commented Cochran-Siegle. “After yesterday, I felt I skied well but recognized there was still a lot missing to be where I know I can be. It was motivating to see the guys in the back ski so fast yesterday in fair conditions. Today I brought just a little bit more intensity with my skiing, aggressive touch on my skis, and fighting for aerodynamics, and it ended up being a solid day.”

Steven Nyman returned to the World Cup, finishing 23rd from bib 38, followed by Jared Goldberg tied for 24th with Norway’s Adrian Smiseth Sejersted. 

With four Americans in the top 25, Cochran-Siegle sees hope for the future of the American men’s speed team but feels the group has room for improvement. 

“I thought the US showed some strong skiing with Travis in 8th and four of us in the top 25, but we also have to see the room to grow and be more competitive for the future,” said Cochran-Siegle. “We all are capable of more and we need to keep pushing ourselves as a team to get there.”

Fellow starters Erik Arvidsson, Bryce Bennett, and Sam Morse finished 31st, 39th, and 53rd.

The U.S. team has one last go in Kvitfjell on Sunday, March 6, in the super-G.

Shiffrin Second In Lenzerheide Super-G

By Mackenzie Moran
March, 5 2022

In her return to the World Cup following a difficult Olympic Winter Games in Beijing, Mikaela Shiffrin punched her way back into podium position, taking second in the Lenzerheide, Switzerland super-G on Saturday, March 5.

Shiffrin finished 0.38 seconds behind France’s Romane Miradoli in first to earn her best result in the super-G discipline so far in the 21/22 season. Super-G Olympic gold medalist, Lara Gut-Behrami, finished third, 0.88 off the pace. A podium finish for Shiffrin adds 80 points in her overall standings, keeping her in the lead for the overall Crystal Globe ahead of Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova.

“I tried not to think about everything else, just today, just the super-G skiing,” Shiffrin reflected after the race. “I got to the finish line, and thank gosh, I survived. After the last couple of weeks, I really appreciate this.” 

Shiffrin DNFed in three technical events at the 2022 Beijing Winter Games, more than she has throughout the last four seasons of her career on the World Cup circuit. In addition to battling the emotional tolls of her first major ‘failure’ on the world stage, the soon-to-be 27-year-old has been reconciling with her ability to move forward in her father Jeff’s absence and pursuing sport amidst war in Europe. 

“It’s just been heavy,” she said. “Not just because of the Olympics, but of course, that’s a part of it. Everything has felt heavy on my mind and on my heart, and I’m just really grateful and lucky for the people around me that are always trying to stay positive and help me be positive and help me keep focusing on the sport that I love.”

Her teammates, Bella Wright and Keely Cashman, also grabbed pointing scoring finishes, despite a few baubles in challenging course sections. Wright finished 28th in her return to the World Cup circuit, while Cashman finished 30th. Tricia Mangan did not finish.

Next up in the rare race weekend combination in Lenzerheide, Switzerland is the women’s giant slalom on Sunday, March 6.

Brennan Seventh In Holmenkollen Skifestival 30k Classic

Rosie Brennan once again proved she is one of the best all-around cross country athletes in the world, leading the Davis U.S. Cross Country Team with a seventh-place finish in the 30k classic at the Holmenkollen Skifestival in Oslo, Norway, Saturday.

Norway’s Therese Johaug, who won the race 11 years ago and announced her retirement Friday, won the FIS World Cup Cross Country race with a time of 1:19.22. Finland’s Krista Parmakoski was second, 19 seconds back. Sweden’s Jonna Sundling was this at 32 seconds off Johaug’s time. Brennan was 1:12 back. In her first career 30k classic, Julia Kern was 23rd; Hailey Swirbul was 26th, and Caitlin Patterson was 30th.

For Brennan, who finished in the top six in all six events at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, Saturday’s race was significantly different from the 30k freestyle at the 2022 Games, with thousands of fans cheering fans lining the course.

“This race was nothing like Zhangjiakou,” Brennan said of the cold, wind-swept race on the final day of the Games. “It is tough to even compare the two. 30ks are always an adventure, and I am thrilled to have put together two strong ones in each technique.

“I had a great ride with Ebba (Andersson) and had an enjoyable time skiing out there today,” Brennan added, noting that the events of the week led to quite a bit of pre-race anxiety. “It's also been a stressful week for a variety of reasons…I am really proud of giving myself another chance to put together a good race here and to have managed the stress and anxiety well enough to do so.”

Jessie Diggins, who won the silver medal in the 30k freestyle at the 2022 Games and is currently second in the overall FIS Cross Country World Cup standings, was among the thousands of cheering spectators Saturday. 

​​”My heart wanted to race Holmenkollen, but taking care of my body comes first…and my body is still tired from the last 30km!” Diggins posted on Instagram.

Up next, the men compete in the 50k classic Sunday at the Holmenkollen Skifestival. Staring for the U.S. are Scott Patterson, Adam Martin, Zak Ketterson, Hunter Wonders, and John Steel Hagenbuch.

Unfortunately, due to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the FIS Cross Country World Cup Finals scheduled for March 18-20 in Tyumen, Russia, have been canceled. Next weekend’s FIS Cross Country World Cup in Falun, Sweden, will be the season's final event and will include the first-ever mixed team sprint and mixed team relays.

“I am really bummed Finals was canceled,” Brennan said, “but it will be fun to end the season with the mixed relay event as that is a new one for us!”

RCS Leads Four Into Top 20

Ryan Cochran-Siegle led the Americans in the first of two Kvitfjell, Norway FIS Ski World Cup downhills on Friday, landing in 11th. Travis Ganong was just four hundredths behind Cochran-Siegle in 12th, Steven Nyman was 18th, and Jared Goldberg was 20th.  

The Olympiabakken track was perfectly prepared and held up for the entire field, giving several guys in the back of the pack a unique opportunity to move up. In what was a thrilling race to watch, five athletes out of the top 30 landed in the top 20—most notably including Canada’s Cameron Alexander coming from bib 39 to tie Swiss Niels Hintermann for first with a time of 1:44.42. Austria’s Matthias Mayer was off the pace by .12 seconds. A mere 1.10 seconds separated first place from 20th. 

Cochran-Siegle, who is fresh off a super-G silver medal at Beijing 2022, had a solid run to lead the Americans into the points. When asked about the surprise results in the race, Cochran-Siegle said, “That’s Kvitfjell for you," commenting how it goes to show the benefit of having solid Europa Cups results at the venue beforehand. Indeed, Alexander, who had not even scored a World Cup point during the entire 2021-22 season, grabbed three top-five finishes in the Europa Cups in Kvitfjell in February, highlighted by a downhill victory. 

Sam Morse, Erik Arvidsson, and Bryce Bennett also started for the Americans, ending in 32nd, 50th, and 54th, respectively.

The race to the downhill globe remains tight, with Norway’s Aleksander Aamodt Kilde leading by a mere three points, with 490 to Swiss Feuz’s 487. Austria’s Matthias Mayer remains third in the standings, with 462 points. Swiss Marco Odermatt remains the clear leader in the overall standings, with 1,216 points, Kilde with 870 points, and Mayer with 752. 

Up next for the men is another downhill Saturday with another chance on the Olympiabakken track for the Americans to snag a podium.

Macuga Wins Bronze To Kick Off Alpine Junior World Ski Championships

Lauren Macuga Bronze
Lauren Macuga, teammates, and staff celebrate her bronze in Thursday's downhill to kick off the 2022 Alpine Junior World Ski Championships In Panorama, B.C. 

Lauren Macuga skied to third place on Thursday to kick off the 2022 Alpine Junior World Ski Championships In Panorama, B.C. 

Macuga, a Development Team member and resident of Park City, Utah, skied to 1:28.58 in the downhill, the first event in the FIS Alpine Junior World Ski Championships. She finished .25 seconds behind winner Magdalena Egger of Austria, who posted the winning time of 1:28.33. German Emma Aicher was the last athlete to kick out of the start gate and ended the race sliding into the second position, with a time of 1:28.46.

Alpine Development Director Chip Knight explained how Macuga had been progressing throughout her speed career and was ready for a bigger stage for her talents to shine through. “She has been working hard on her technical skiing, while also gaining experience in the speed events on a higher level World Cup and Europa Cup tracks. Those efforts paid dividends here in Panorama,” said Knight. 

Macuga was ecstatic about her bronze finish and could not believe that it happened today despite the conditions in the past few days. 

“To open at Junior Worlds at Panorama Resort with a third is incredible. I knew I could put one down, but to see it in the results with all the best juniors in the world is the craziest feeling ever,” reflected Macuga. 

Macuga added that she wants to keep her skiing at this level and keep progressing for the future. “I plan to keep the ball rolling into the next few days of racing! And I am ready to ski my best against these women and can’t wait to see my teammates up there with me,” Macuga said. 

Ava Sunshine Jemison of Edwards, Colo., finished 20th, having waited out two long race interruptions—one due to heavy fog. Twenty-six women started in the field, and there were two DNFs.

The women's downhill was the first race in the nine-day competition featuring 11 events, open to the world’s best junior alpine skiers, born in the years 2000 to 2003. 

Macuga’s family is no stranger to the mountains and ski competition. She has two siblings also on the U.S. Ski Team; sister Sam Macuga is a ski jumper and her sister Alli Macuga is a moguls skier. 

The men’s downhill was canceled due to the fog. The men will strap on the downhill skis again on Friday for the rescheduled race while the women will tackle super-G. The men's super-G has yet to be rescheduled. More information will be forthcoming.

Bristol Mountain and U.S. Ski & Snowboard are excited to announce that the 2022 Toyota U.S. Aerial Freestyle Championships have been rescheduled to Sunday, March 13, 2022. Four Olympic Medalists plan to compete including the Olympic Mixed Team Aerials Gold Medalists Chris Lillis (former Bristol Mountain Freestyle Team Member), Ashley Caldwell, and Justin Schoenefeld and Olympic Bronze Medalist Megan Nick.

Wright Career-Best Top 10 In Crans-Montana Downhill

By Megan Harrod
February, 27 2022

It was another beautiful day at Crans-Montana, Switzerland for the second of two FIS Ski World Cup downhills for the women, and Bella Wright led the way for the Americans with a career-best 10th place. 

After snagging a career-best fourth place in Saturday’s downhill, Switzerland’s Priska Nufer wowed the hometown crowd on Sunday, earning her first World Cup podium and first World Cup victory in one fell swoop. Czech Republic Ester Ledecka carried the confidence she gained with Saturday’s victory, skiing boldly and solidly into second place, just 11 hundredths off of Nufer, followed by Italy’s Sofia Goggia in third.  

After finishing 30th in Saturday’s downhill, Wright put the hammer down and rocketed from bib 37 to land in 10th, after posting solid split times all the way down. She ended up .55 seconds off the pace set by Nufer. Wright said she didn’t do anything special…she just went out, skied a lot more like herself, and “felt really calm.” And it certainly showed. “My run didn’t feel lightning fast,” she reflected. “I think that’s because I was so in control and over my skis which resulted in a solid run.”

After struggling early in the season and then sustaining a talus bone fracture in her right ankle, Wright felt relieved to find the speed she knows she’s capable of on the world stage, despite the fact that she often feels pain in her ankle. “I’m just so so happy that it worked out today,” she continued. “I’ve really been struggling with how many things have hit me the past six months. I’ve skied with pain every day since I got back on skis. It’s been a bunch of little nagging things, and my ankle has good days and bad days. So I’m really just happy that I pushed through all the pain but especially proud that I pushed through the mental barrier today of not feeling confident due to lack of time on snow.”

Wright has a message for those who feel like time is against them. She says, “...Just know that you have it within you to show up when you desire it most. Yesterday was a tough day, today was the best feeling I’ve ever had crossing the finish. Things can change in an instant and I’m so grateful to finally showcase what I’m capable of. To be so close to the podium makes me so giddy. Hungry for more. And I’m so grateful to my team and teammates for pushing me each day to just try to ski like I know how to ski. Today was a great day, and I’m so grateful for today after all the days of doubt that I’ve felt.”

She will carry the good energy onward, saying, “I have great memories from last year in Crans…and this year even better memories. I love the track here and I’m excited to come back next year!”

Jackie Wiles finished just outside of the points, in 32nd, with teammate Alix Wilkinson in 39th. Keely Cashman did not finish and had a pretty big crash, but is thankfully OK, as she skied down and had a smile on her face in the finish area.

After her podium finish on Sunday, Goggia remains the leader in the downhill standings with 482 points to Switzerland’s Corrine Suter with 407 points. Slovakian Petra Vlhova finished a respectable 16th in Sunday’s downhill, earning 15 points. She will walk away from the weekend tied with Mikaela Shiffrin in the overall standings, with 1,026 points. Goggia is sitting in third with 851 points. 

The women will now travel to Lenzerheide, Switzerland for a super-G and giant slalom series on March 5-6, where Shiffrin will return to World Cup action.

Brennan Rallies For Eighth In World Cup 10k Classic

Rosie Brennan led four Davis U.S. Cross Country Ski Team athletes into the points, finishing eighth at the FIS Cross Country World Cup 10k classic in Lahti, Finland, Sunday.

Norway’s Therese Johaug took the victory with a time of 24 minutes, 28 seconds. Russia’s Natalia Nepryaeva was second, followed by Finland Krista Parmakowski in third. Brennan was 1:02 off the winning time. Jessie Diggins was 20th, followed by Julia Kern in 28th and Hailey Swirbul in 29th.

For Brennan, popping a top 10 result following the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, where she competed in all six cross country events, followed by another long couple of travel days from China to Finland, was a significant accomplishment.

“I am really happy with today,” Brennan said. “I have always struggled post championships, not so much in my body but in my mind. It's really difficult to live on the road and be sharp and push so hard all the time. It often feels like there is never a chance to let down the way someone who goes home every week might experience. I am always trying to figure this out and work towards finding ways to let down and then pull the fight back up for the weekend. It's all part of the game, and it's a good challenge to try to figure everything out.” 

Sunday’s result was even more satisfying for Brennan after she just missed the opportunity to advance to the semifinals in Saturday’s freestyle sprint by four hundredths of a second.

“I was definitely frustrated after yesterday and am really happy I was able to let it go and find myself out there today,” she said. “We have great weather this weekend and a big crowd, so that was a huge bonus. It was a joy to not be skiing in an arctic tornado!”

In the men's 15k classic, Scott Patterson just missed the points, finishing 33rd.

Up next, the FIS Cross Country World Cup Tour heads to Drammen, Norway, for a freestyle sprint on Thursday, March 3.

Career-Best For Ritchie With Top 20 in Garmisch Slalom

The FIS Ski World Cup men’s slalom tour continued on Sunday with blue skies in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, for the second of two slalom races in the weekend’s series. Ben Ritchie led the way for the Americans, earning a career-best 20th place despite the challenging conditions. 

Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen took his second-consecutive World Cup slalom victory, excelling on a tricky second run set he deemed “for the men, not the boys.” David “Rocket” Ryding skyrocketed from a 19th place first run to end up second place on a course set by his coach. Germany’s Linus Strasser rounded out the podium in third. 

With this victory, Kristoffersen took the lead in the slalom standings with 356 points from teammate Lucas Braathen (307 points). Adding to Kristoffersen’s victory, he became the first man in slalom to win multiple World Cup slalom races this season. Braathen also had an impressive showing in the second run, with another significant jump, from 24th place first run to clock the second-fastest second run and land just off the podium in fourth. 

Ritchie set himself up well in the first run, finishing 18th, putting him in a good place to make the top 30 flip and collect some more World Cup points. He skied a solid and smart second run and grabbed a career-best 20th place finish.

With the depth in this men’s slalom field, anything could have happened. Nine athletes did not finish the second run, including Swiss Loic Meillard who was leading after the first run, making it an advantage to Kristoffersen to snag the win from his opponents. 

Fellow Americans Luke Winters, Jett Seymour, and Alex Leever also started but did not qualify for a second run. 

Switzerland’s Marco Odermatt continues to lead in the overall standings, with 1,200 points to Norway’s Aleksander Aamodt Kilde’s 825 points. With his performance this weekend, Kristoffersen moved up to fourth in the overall standings, with 659 points. 

The men will travel to Kvitfjell, Norway for a pair of downhill races—including the rescheduled downhill from the Xfinity Birds of Prey World Cup at Beaver Creek, Colo.—and a super-G.

Diggins Fourth, Kern Eighth In Lahti Freestyle Sprint

By Tom Horrocks
February, 26 2022

Just six days after her historic silver-medal performance in the 30k freestyle at the 2022 Olympic Winter Games, Jessie Diggins was back on snow, finishing fourth in the FIS World Cup Cross Country Freestyle Sprint - leading four of her teammates into the top 28 in Lahti, Finland, Saturday.

Olympic gold medalist Jonna Sundling led a Swedish sweep of the podium with Emma Ribom in second and Maja Dahlqvist in third. Diggins's fourth-place result closed the gap on Russia’s overall World Cup leader Natalia Nepryaeva, who finished sixth. Diggins moved up to second in the overall World Cup standings, 209 points behind Nepryaeva.

Julia Kern was eighth, Rosie Brennan 13th, and Hailey Swirbul 28th. Both Diggins and Kern advanced to the semifinals, finishing 1-2 in the quarterfinal heat five. In the second semifinal, Diggins was second and Kern just missed advancing to the finals, finishing fourth.

“Today was a lot of fun,” Kern said. “The conditions were great, the stadium and course were filled with lively spectators and I was really excited to get back to racing the World Cup! I felt like I had a lot of great energy today, skied well, and enjoyed the awesome atmosphere while racing side-by-side with Jessie in the heats! I was stoked to put down maybe my best World Cup qualifier and see that my body is ready to fire after the Olympics.”

Up next, the women will compete in a 10k Classic, the men in a 15k Classic Sunday in Lahti.
