Alexander Fifth at Kitzbühel World Cup Downhill

Calgary, AB. (Jan 19, 2024) — Cameron Alexander (North Vancouver, BC) raced to fifth place today at the FIS Ski World Cup men’s downhill in Kitzbühel (AUT). This is Alexanders sixth career World Cup downhill top 10 and his career best result in Kitzbühel. 

Racing the legendary Streif, the downhill event of the Hahnenkamm Races in Kitzbühel, Alexander sat in the leader’s chair for five racers before settling into fifth place. This is a career best fourth top 10 this season for Alexander and now into the second half of the World Cup downhill season he climbs to 12th in the downhill standings. 

“The goal here is to be on the top step of the podium,” said Alexander. “I was close today and a top five in Kitzbühel feels amazing. I focused on attacking the course today with good intensity and confidence and I’m happy with the result. I feel good coming into the race tomorrow. 

Three other Canadian men took on the Streif today with James Crawford (Toronto, ON) finishing 23rd, Jeffrey Read (Canmore, AB) who started 54th, punched his way into the points finishing 27th and Brodie Seger (North Vancouver, BC) came in 51st.
