Calgary, Alta. (March 5, 2023) – Riley Seger (North Vancouver, BC) raced to a career best 10th place in today’s super-G at the FIS Alpine Skiing World Cup race in Aspen, USA. This is Seger’s 29th World Cup start and his fourth top 30 finish this season.
Starting 51st Seger capitalized on improving conditions to punch his way up the standings to finish 10th. Today’s result bumps Seger into the top 30 in this season’s World Cup super-G standings.
“I’m extremely happy with today,” said a smiling Seger. “The conditions were favourable for the later bibs with a tail wind that helped on the flatter sections at the top. I was happy to capitalize on the opportunity. My first top 10 feels great!”
Coming off Saturday’s second place finish in the downhill, James (Jack) Crawford (Toronto, ON) finished right behind Seger in 11th place. Jeffrey Read (Canmore, AB) placed 21st, his fourth consecutive top 30 World Cup finish putting him in 17th place in the World Cup super-G standings.
Broderick Thompson (Whistler, BC) just missed out on World Cup points finishing 31st, while Kyle Alexander (North Vancouver, BC) didn’t finish today’s race and Cameron Alexander (North Vancouver, BC) didn’t start today.
