JANUARY 9 & 10 WEEKEND RECAP
Unfavourable weather conditions wreaked havoc on the men’s giant slalom race in Adelboden, Switzerland forcing a race cancellation. Course crews were able to pull off the second race slated for the men on Sunday, running a snowy and foggy slalom where Norwegian young gun Henrik Kristoffersen won by just 0.06 seconds ahead of Austrian Marcel Hirscher. Alexander Khoroshilov from Russia finished in third-place, 0.60 seconds back.
Calgary-native and 24-year-old, Trevor Philp, secured his first-ever World Cup slalom points. Philp finished the day in 24th place, moving up five places after his second run. Philp now has seven World Cup slalom points and he looks to continue adding to his tally this season. Read more.
