Lake Louise, AB (December 1, 2019) – Sometimes starting at the back of the pack gives you an opportunity to learn from all those who came before you. That is exactly what happened today at the Audi FIS Lake Louise World Cup super-G. Brodie Seger of North Vancouver, BC started in 57th spot and was able to put together the best Canadian run of the day, tying his World Cup personal best finishing in 16th position.
“My mindset was to go out there and push and do what I can do. It’s such a confidence boost going forward. This was exactly my goal this season. I know I’ve been skiing well in training but to finally make it happen feels so good.”
Seger was especially happy to perform so well in front of fans, friends and family, who were appropriately celebratory when Seger crossed the finish line.
“It was amazing, that was the first thing I heard before I even saw the results. When I saw my place, I was just over the moon.”
Brodie Seger finished 16th, Jack Crawford – 39th, Ben Thomsen – 48th, Jeff Read – 49th and Dustin Cook – 50th. Sam Mulligan did not finish.
The men look to build on the experience as the tour moves south of the border to Beaver Creek for the Xfinity Birds of Prey World Cup later this week.
