The international field of participants attracted many spectators to the Silvano Beltrametti World Cup track at Lenzerheide, and ensured a spectacular ending of a long season. The international World Cup racers had to wait three years, but they finally got to see somebody other than Swiss-Ski athletes on top of the Red Bull SKiLLS podium.

Slovenian runner-up of the overall World Cup, Tina Maze, and Frenchman Adrien Théaux were able push the 2014 winners, Denise Feierabend and Mauro Caviezel, respectively, back to second places. Red Bull SKiLLS is a race that encompasses all four disciplines in a single course with no stopping and no changing of skis.

The stars had to put their versatile qualities to the test and had to stand against challengers who had qualified in three other events for the finals. The transition from super G into the slalom – most riders used giant slalom skis – was pretty tricky. Other World Cup stars in the mix included Fritz Dopfer (GER), Patrick Kueng (SUI), Frida Hansdotter (SWE), Tina Weirather (LIE), Davide Simoncelli (ITA) and Eva-Maria Brem (AUT), and all of them had their share of fun at the same time.

“I am really content. Being a part of this event alone is amazing. I had so much fun here on the Lenzerheide. Winning is the total highlight” said Théaux, who in all this exaltation didn’t forget to thank the audience for a great day and an even greater race.

After a long World Cup season that had taken its toll physically as well as mentally, Maze took a seemingly easy victory in the women’s field.

“A race with four disciplines is just cut out for me. I have proved that I can be fast in all disciplines.” Maze didn’t forget to stress the fact that besides all the fun, it’s important to live up to your abilities: “You need to ski well here in order to be fast and make it across the finish line safely.”

Maze, who finished third last year, was both safe and fast to take the 2015 victory.

Ginnis, Shiffrin honored as Ski Racing’s Junior Alpine Skiers of the Year http://www.skiracing.com/stories/ginnis-shiffrin-honored-as-ski-racings-junior-alpine-skiers-of-the-year/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/ginnis-shiffrin-honored-as-ski-racings-junior-alpine-skiers-of-the-year/#comments Mon, 30 Mar 2015 14:44:43 +0000 Hank McKee http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35729 CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – Ski Racing’s U.S. Junior Alpine Skier of the Year Awards were announced Friday evening during the Athlete-Parent Banquet highlighting the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf, Maine.

The award, one of a series of skier of the year recognition awards issued annually by SkiRacing.com, has been handed out since 1975 and has been won by numerous skiers who have gone on to illustrious careers on the international stage. Previous honorees include Steve Mahre, Tamara McKinney, Diann Roffe, Tommy Moe, Lindsey Vonn, Ted Ligety, Steven Nyman, and current USSA President and CEO Tiger Shaw.

The elite group of past award winners accounts for 16 Olympic medals, 35 World Championship medals, and 166 World Cup victories.

The 2015 Junior Alpine Skier of the Year Award was given to AJ Ginnis, a Green Mountain Valley School alumnus, U.S. Ski Team development group athlete, and bronze medal winner at this season’s World Junior Championships in Norway. Two days after receiving the award, he finished as runner-up in the U.S. National Championship slalom behind World Cup regular David Chodounsky.

The women’s honoree was Mikaela Shiffrin, who claimed her record sixth Junior of the Year Award. Shiffrin won the slalom gold medal at this season’s FIS Alpine World Ski Championship and her third straight World Cup slalom crystal globe.

Chodounsky successfully defends US slalom title at Sugarloaf http://www.skiracing.com/stories/chodounsky-successfully-defends-us-slalom-title-at-sugarloaf/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/chodounsky-successfully-defends-us-slalom-title-at-sugarloaf/#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 20:02:02 +0000 SR Staff http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35717 SUGARLOAF, Maine — With a come-from-behind second run, David Chodounsky confirmed his status as a skiing star by winning the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships slalom for the second year in a row. The win also gave him the combined victory, on paper — adding up both the slalom and the super G races. AJ Ginnis finished second and Redneck Racing’s Tim Kelley was third in the slalom. In the alpine combined, Tim Jitloff was second and Drew Duffy took third.

After a great start to the season — teetering on the edge of top-10 World Cup finishes — Chodounsky had a rough go at the end of the year. And it looked like nationals were going to go the same way for him, as he broke his pole during the first run and finished third. But he was determined to see it through in the second run, and his persistence gave him the slalom win.

“It feels great. I’m really happy. This year hasn’t been the best year for me. It has kind of been a struggle at the end especially, so I really wanted to come back home and make a strong showing at U.S. nationals,” said Chodounsky, who has now won three national slalom titles in total. “It really does mean a lot to me to win here and end the season on a good note.”

Kelley, who was first after first run, had a big mistake second run, which dropped back to third. Up-and-comer Ginnis slid into second place for another trophy to add to his case after taking third at the World Junior Championships this season.

Both Kelley and Chodounsky, World Cup veterans, were ecstatic for the young gun.

“He’s such a talented skier. Everyone has known it all season. He’s been really pushing strong this year and has really broken out,” said Chodounsky. “He’s going to be a great skier. We’re just helping him along and I have no doubt he’s going to start winning these races soon.”

Ginnis was equally as thankful for the help Kelley and Chodounsky gave him this season.

“Timmy and David, we spend the entire season in Europe, just grinding it out together. It’s fun to be here at home and race against each other under blue skies, at a great resort — it’s awesome,” said Ginnis. “Tim was actually the guy when I was up-and-coming that guided me. This year on the World Cup, David really showed me how everything works. To be with those guys on the podium was awesome.”

Rounding out the top five was the University of Denver’s Alex Leever in fourth, as the second-place junior, and Team America’s Seppi Stiegler fifth.

In the alpine combined, Sugarloaf-native Sam Morse finished fourth and Green Mountain Valley School’s Ryan Mooney was fifth.

The slalom wrapped up a fun week at Sugarloaf with racers having nothing but good things to say about the East Coast venue. It was a close fight between East and West rivals, with the western skiers sneaking out the win with 2220 total points from the week and the easterners with 2026 points. Rocky/Central skiers took third with 1509 points.

Prefontaine, Mielzynski, Jasiczek collect final Canadian titles http://www.skiracing.com/stories/prefontaine-mielzynski-jasiczek-collect-final-canadian-titles/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/prefontaine-mielzynski-jasiczek-collect-final-canadian-titles/#comments Sun, 29 Mar 2015 13:41:33 +0000 SR Staff http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35715 MONT STE. ANNE, Canada – Marie-Pier Préfontaine successfully defended her Canadian National Championship giant slalom title on Friday, putting the finishing touch on a great season.

The spring-like conditions continued but couldn’t stop the ladies from charging hard for the top step of the podium.

“It is a nice way to end the season,” expressed Préfontaine. “Absolutely I wanted to win, but the first run ended up being quite close with Val (Grenier) being right there behind me in the standing, which pushed me to go hard in the second run.”

Préfontaine won the Sports Experts Canadian National Championship with a combined time of 2:11.94. Candice Crawford took second place with a combined time of 2:13.52 and Erin Mielzynski finished third at 2:13.87.

“Being the Canadian Champion is pretty cool. I am happy to have the title two years in a row. The Nationals Championships gives the opportunity to see who is coming up and provides tighter competition for the title.”

Préfontaine has seen much success over the season. She was the only Canadian to qualify for the ladies’ giant slalom at World Cup Finals in Meribel, France, where she finished 13th.

The Junior National Championships were awarded on Friday, with rising star Candice Crawford taking the giant slalom title in Friday’s race. Teammate Valerie Grenier finished second and Stephanie Gartner finished third.

Mielzynski took home the Sports Experts Canadian National Championship slalom title the following day also at Mont Ste. Anne.

Mielzynski, who had three top-10 finishes during this year’s World Cup season and was the power house that lead the Canadians to a silver medal in the Team Event at the 2015 World Championship in Vail-Beaver Creek, won her first National Championship title on Saturday.

With the spring-like conditions continuing in Quebec, the field yet again fought through unpredictable snow conditions, where more then half of the ladies did not finish the first run.

Mielzynski finished with a combined time of 1:43.80. Second place was awarded to Crawford, for her second podium in two days, and Jocelyn McCarthy finished third.

“Today was all about fighting your way down,” said Mielzynski. “It was pretty rough track, but a fun hill and you had to fight top to bottom. I have never won a Canadian Championship so it is definitely an exciting day.”

When asked for her thoughts on the significance of the National Championships, Mielzynski shared, “It is a big title to win and I have always wanted to win that. I think Nationals is a big deal, it is an opportunity for older and younger athlete’s to race together. I always look forward to Nationals as you get to see your old coaches, and it’s one of the few times the whole country is together.”

Crawford won the Junior Canadian National Championship slalom title in Saturday’s race, followed by McCarthy in second and Alexa Dlouhy finishing in third.

In the men’s race, Michal Jasiczek of Poland surprised the field by winning both the Canadian National Championship slalom title and the Junior Canadian National Championship title with a combined time of 1:37.84. The Canadian team was proud to see Michal capture the gold, as his father Dariusz Jasiczek, President of Hermes Management S.A., is a long-time partner and supporter of Alpine Canada Alpin.

National team member Erik Read finished second with a combined time of 1:37.84 and Julien Cousineau, who recently announced his retirement at the end of this season, finished third.

Behind first place Jasiczek, Patrick McConville finished in second place and Broderick Thompson took home third in the Junior Canadian National Championships slalom.

Independent skier Megan McJames was third.

In front of a huge crowd cheering Shiffrin’s name, she threw down her first run with a time no one could beat. Second run, she did the same; but Moltzan was on her tail.

“Last year I was four seconds behind (Shiffrin) every run and now I’m two, so it’s going down!” Moltzan joked after her second-place finish. “It’s nice to have a benchmark to see how you’re progressing in your skiing.”

Moltzan, a slalom specialist who is often compared to Shiffrin, won this year’s World Junior Championships in Norway. Although more than four seconds off of Shiffrin’s pace, Moltzan did hold a hefty 2.5-second lead over the rest of the field, as well — showcasing the dominance of both of these young women.

Even after winning the World Cup slalom title and World Championships slalom gold this year, Shiffrin was thrilled to be in Sugarloaf, competing at the U.S. Alpine Championships. Many of the audience members came over from Burke Mountain Academy, where Shiffrin attended high school.

“These kinds of races mean a lot because of who comes. It’s the next generation of skiers who shows up and watches and hopefully gets inspired by all of the racers — and not just by me or just the U.S. Ski Team athletes,” said Shiffrin, who has now won four national titles. “It’s cool for me to see the excitement. It makes me excited too. It’s the perfect way to end the season and get ready for the new season.”

Shiffrin remembered her first time competing at the national championships, citing it as a turning point in her ski racing career.

“I see a bit of myself in all of these kids because it was not so long ago that I showed up for U.S. nationals for the first time and was thinking, ‘I don’t know if I can do well here. I don’t know if I’m that good of a skier,’” she said. “So it’s been since then — that first U.S. nationals. It’s been going quite quickly.” Shiffrin won that first U.S. Alpine Championships slalom race in 2011 and again in 2012, but the title eluded her in the last two seasons before she was able to reclaim it at Sugarloaf.

Leading the U18 charge in the race was Burke Mountain Academy’s Madison Lord in eighth.

Shiffrin plans to stick around on Sunday to watch her brother race in the men’s slalom — the final event in the series.

Jitloff edges out Ford for fifth GS title http://www.skiracing.com/stories/jitloff-edges-out-ford-for-fifth-gs-title/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/jitloff-edges-out-ford-for-fifth-gs-title/#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 19:02:52 +0000 Hank McKee http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35706 CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – It was the fifth U.S. national giant slalom title for Tim Jitloff, and his third straight, but he was genuinely worried about first run leader Tommy Ford.

“Nationals is Tommy Ford’s stomping ground,” Jitloff said.

Ford’s lead was a scant two hundredths after the first run. Jitloff, at age 30 and no stranger to how the game is played, figured if he could just put a little pressure on Ford with a strong second run, he had a chance and it was a race he wanted.

Ford has his share (eight in multiple disciplines) of national crowns as well, including two GS titles in between Jit’s strings. He pulled no punches, but took at least one risk too many. One small bobble on the final face may well have spelled the difference, a 0.42-second margin once all the dust settled.

“I’m happy for Tommy,” said Jitloff. “He’s had a rough go of it the last couple years. But I thought maybe it’s good if he’s leading after the first run, put a little pressure on him maybe I can claw my way back. It was fun. We’re all really tired.”

“We saw you singing Johnny Cash between runs,” a journalist said.

“A good indicator that I’m a little tired now,” Jitloff acknowledged. “This is how it is, we’re all happy to be here because this is really fun for us – a chance to hang out with each other and decompress from the season. And to see some of the kids coming up. We saw the young buck win the super G, Duffy.”

Team Geronimo’s Nick Cohee rounded out the podium in third, and Great Britain’s Jack Gower was the top junior in eighth.

“It’s a good way to go … last couple of races on World Cup were not what I wanted. … So if I can win the final race of the season and win a national title, then that’s always awesome and something to be proud of,” added Jitloff. “And,” he said, unable to resist the plug, “it’s the first national title in history for Stoeckli skis, so they’ll be pumped.”

Donaldson blows doors off Canadian championships GS http://www.skiracing.com/stories/donaldson-blows-doors-off-canadian-championships-gs/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/donaldson-blows-doors-off-canadian-championships-gs/#comments Fri, 27 Mar 2015 14:54:35 +0000 SR Staff http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35704 MONT STE. ANNE, Canada – A little rain and warm temperatures didn’t dampen the spirits of racers at the Sports Experts Canadian National Championships on Thursday as former University of Vermont and Middlebury College skier David Donaldson, of the Ontario Ski Team, owned the day.

Donaldson won the Canadian championship giant slalom race by 1.55 seconds over national team member Tyler Werry, while UVM’s William St. Germain finished third in a field including World Cup competitors.

Warm spring-like conditions proved to be a challenge for the race.  Most recently, Werry finished second at the Sport Chek Canadian National Championships downhill, which was held in Sugarloaf, Maine.

Mont Ste. Anne is the official host of the technical races for the 2015 Sports Experts Canadian National Championships. Canadian alpine and para-alpine athletes have come from all across the country to compete in the technical races.

Young gun O’Brien bests USST athletes for national GS title http://www.skiracing.com/stories/young-gun-obrien-bests-usst-athletes-for-national-gs-title/ http://www.skiracing.com/stories/young-gun-obrien-bests-usst-athletes-for-national-gs-title/#comments Thu, 26 Mar 2015 18:20:29 +0000 Hank McKee http://www.skiracing.com/?post_type=stories&p=35675 CARRABASSETT VALLEY, Maine – Two surprise U.S. Nationals title winners in two days. What could be more amazing than that? Try this: They’re dating.

Drew Duffy won the super G on Wednesday, March 25 and Nina O’Brien the women’s giant slalom on Thursday, March 26. Both took advantage of nearly perfect weather days at the East Coast mecca of spring skiing, Sugarloaf, at the first Eastern-hosted U.S. National Championship since 2006.

O’Brien, a Colorado native just 17 years old and among the youngest participants, put down a blazing first run to move 0.36 of a second ahead of the pack. The Burke Mountain Academy and National Training Group U18 athlete didn’t exactly come out of nowhere, as she’s strung together a series of top-10 finishes this year on the NorAm circuit. Her second run was a hair conservative, owing she suspects to a vicious case of the jitters, but she added another hundredth to her margin for the win over World Junior slalom gold medalist Paula Moltzan and Megan McJames in third, the top-two point holders in the race.

“I was so nervous, I haven’t been that position in a big race like this,” said O’Brien. The solution was to make the effort. “I just tried to stay relaxed and have fun. I had a lot of fun in the first run.”

Staying ahead of U.S. Ski Team athletes and those with World Cup experience was task made a touch easier, perhaps, because her boyfriend had collected his own U.S. title just the day before.

The U.S. Ski Team’s speed squad, perhaps buoyed by Lindsey Vonn forerunning with a GoPro, was in control for much of the second heat with Laurenne Ross finishing fourth and Stacey Cook fifth.

“My life has changed over the past few years. You grow as a person as you grow in your skiing,” said Vonn. “I’m really just here for the kids — for all the junior racers. It’s not about the competition, but more about the next generation.”

There is little doubt the national team is exhausted from its long World Cup season, but there are youngsters taking advantage, and that is not always the case.

“I think today is a great example of an up and comer rising quickly. Nina has had a great season. For her to win the nationals just caps it off perfectly,” said USSA President and CEO Tiger Shaw. “That she can be a national champion at that age is wonderful. It is a testament to women’s team development and our staff, our team, her parents and Burke and everybody that made it all happen. It’s really, really fun to see.”
