After tumbling in Schladming I’m happy with a solid 17th place.” said Erik. “It was great to be back racing GS! It was challenging conditions with the rain, but I was happy with my skiing and my charge in both runs. I’ll take a top 20 today and try again next time!” added Trevor. Brodie Seger did not qualify for a second run.

I have a lot of confidence going into the season now.” The rest of the team wasn’t far behind with Benjamin Thomsen in 32nd, Jeff Read – 36th, Jack Crawford – 37th and Brodie Seger - 43rd.
