Alpine

The University of New Mexico’s Petter Brenna, of Norway, blazed a second run in the NorAm slalom at Sunday River, Maine Tuesday to grab the win away from American’s Nolan Ryan and junior competitor Michael Ankeny. Who finished third. Monday’s race winner, Paul Stutz of Canada, finished fourth with each of the top four competitors getting single digit race points in a race calculated at 8.05 FIS points.

There were some nice moves from the back of the pack with 37th starting Espen Lysdahl getting sixth, 33rd starting Jared Goldberg finishing 11th and 40th starting Sasha Zaitsoff tied for 12th.

NorAms continue at Sunday River with slaloms Wednesday and Thursday.

A women’s giant slalom at Mont Ste Anne was canceled by inclement weather.

In memoriam: The veteran of the staff, McKee started with Ski Racing in 1980. Over the seasons, he covered virtually every aspect of the sport, from the pro tours to junior racing, freestyle and World Cup alpine competition. He wrote the first national stories for many U.S. team stars, and was still around to report on their retirements. “Longevity has its rewards,” he said, “but it’s a slow process.”
