Alright, alright, alright…..Ski racing is back!

For the first time in many years, both men’s and women’s opening World Cup GS races went off this weekend in great form in Solden Austria. No snow, wind….Just great hard snow conditions for all racers to gauge where they are at after a long summer of training.

The women started things off on the Saturday with the top two finishers showing their early form is a step ahead of many. Both Gut-Behrami and Shiffrin put on a great display of very solid skiing with Shiffrin just edging out Gut-Behrami for the win. Also great skiing and result for Canada’s Valerie Grenier finishing 7th. Her aggressive skiing on the steep icy pitch both runs set her apart from many and earned her this excellent result.

For the men it was an amazingly tight race with .97 separating the top 10 and just over 2 seconds separating the entire 2nd run field of skiers. Marco Odermatt ends up showing last year’s contention for the World Cup Overall was not a coincidence, taking the win by a small margin over the Austrian, Roland Leitinger. Two Canadians qualified for the second run, with Eric Read finishing 18th and Trevor Philip coming in 22nd. Check out their skiing.

Hope you enjoyed watching and Happy Halloween!
