Calgary, Alta. (Feb. 29, 2020) – Jack Crawford (Toronto, ON) had an amazing day of racing in Hinterstoder, AUT finishing in a career best 12th spot. Crawford, who has been a team member since 2016 has had his most impressive World Cup season to date.
Jack was happy with his run today and and is excited to bring results into the tail end of the season. “Today I got a little bit lucky with the bib draw and managed to put in a good run. I sent it as hard as I could and the outcome was exactly what I needed to put myself in a good spot to make World Cup finals.” said Crawford.
Crawford led the young team known as the Wolf Pack on another successful day of racing. Trevor Philp (Calgary, AB), in a rare speed appearance, raced to a 37th place finish. Brodie Seger (North Vancouver, BC) finished in 41st, Jeff Read (Canmore, AB) finished in 47th. Sam Mulligan did not finish his run.
This weekend is one of few this year that sees tech and speed race at the same venue. Tomorrow the men will race in the alpine combined event which was cancelled due to weather on Friday. On Monday it will be the tech teams turn to attack the giant slalom course.
