Alpine

Jared Goldberg made a bid today (Dec. 16) to run away with the Nor Am overall title, padding his lead by 200pts in a single day by taking the opening super G leg of a super combined at Panorama by a healthy margin. He then placed top 15 in the slalom leg for a narrow win over slalom winner Mark Engel.

Canadian Philip Brown got third and Trevor Philp fourth. Morgan Pridy had been second in the super G and finished one place behind Goldberg in the slalom, but was awarded sixth for the combined, edged out by Norway’s Eian Sandvik.

Goldberg’s status as tour leader will hold for a while. Though the circuit has reached its mid-point after tomorrow’s super G closes out the Panorama string, the schedule rests until the end of January.

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.”
