Brodie Seger Keeps The Good Times Rolling With 13th Place Finish in Colorado
Beaver Creek, CO (Dec. 7, 2019) – Just one week after throwing down a career best finish at the Lake Louise Audi FIS Ski World Cup in the Super-G, Brodie Seger of North Vancouver, BC put on another show jumping from bib 55 to a 13th place finish in the downhill at the Xfinity Birds of Prey World Cup in Beaver Creek, CO.
“I had a couple sections where it didn’t go quite as planned and a couple little mistakes,” explained Seger. “It felt pretty loose on the way down and I wasn’t really sure how it was going.”
Coming through the finish to a rowdy crowd, Seger was elated to see his rank.
“I was trying my hardest to let my skis run, I know that’s the only way I can be fast. I need to let things go a little. When I crossed the line, I was just overwhelmed with excitement.”
Competing in only his second career World Cup, Cam Alexander of North Vancouver, BC had a strong race, finishing 42nd.
“It obviously feels pretty good to improve and get a new personal best in my second start, but I’m mostly really happy with the way I went out and skied with confidence down a track I had very limited experience on,” said Alexander.
Jeff Read finished 53rd and Ben Thomsen finished 54th. Jack Crawford did not finish after going into the netting. Crawford was shaken but able to ski down to the finish.
