2021 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS COMING TO A CLOSE

2021 WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS COMING TO A CLOSE

The Canadian Ski Teams are getting ready for another busy weekend of racing across Europe. After finishing the Ski Cross World Championships in Idre Fjäll, SWE the Canadian Ski Cross Team has moved on to Reiteralm, AUT. Following qualifications earlier this week Reece Howden, coming off a fifth-place finish at the World Championships looks to get back on top of the podium in Austria. On the women’s side, Canadian ski cross legend Marielle Thompson will be joined by Courtney Hoffos, who also finished fifth in Sweden last week, and Zoe Chore who is coming off her first World Championships event. The first time World Cup hosts, Reiteralm has grown in popularity the last few years as a training facility known for a variety of lines and challenging elements. “It’s great to be in Reiteralm at a new World Cup venue. The course is fast with a technical start and a couple big banks. I am looking forward to the race,” Marielle said. 

The exciting action in Cortina d’Ampezzo, ITA for the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships continues  as we move into the final tech-focused weekend. Team Canada looks to keep the momentum moving after a strong showing from the Canadian speedsters. This morning Cassidy Gray threw it down in the giant slalom. 

Tomorrow is the men’s chance to tackle the Labirinti course for the giant slalom. Erik Read will lead the team into the start gate after a strong showing in the team event yesterday. Erik will be joined by Trevor Philp, who finished 10th in the alpine combined earlier this week as well as speed specialists Jack Crawford and Brodie Seger, both of who have had fourth-place finishes earlier in the World Championships and are eager to make the jump to the podium.

For the final event of the World Championships, Team Canada will tighten their turns for the men’s and women’s slalom. Laurence St-Germain, who is ranked 8th on the World Cup in slalom this season, will lead the women’s team onto the Druscié A slope, while Erik will stand in the start gate for Canada in the men’s race. 

Here’s hoping that the location of the 1956 Winter Olympics brings Team Canada some magic on the last days of the World Championships.
