Alpine Canada – RACE PREVIEW: JANUARY 7 & 8, 2016

Calgary, Alta. (January 5, 2017) – The Canadian Alpine Ski Teams are in action this weekend with the men and women’s

tech athletes competing in giant slalom and slalom races. The women will race in Maribor (SLO) and the men will be in

Adelboden (SUI).

With top ten results on the women’s side, expectations for continued performance will be high. Marie-Michèle Gagnon

and Erin Mielzynski have both scored top ten finishes in tech disciplines this season. Canada’s young Valérie Grenier, who

has proven she has both speed and technical skills by scoring points in every discipline this season, will be looking to

capitalize on her chances this weekend. Following the weekend races, the women will move to Flachau (AUT) for a slalom

race where Candace Crawford will sync back up with the World Cup team after a crash sidelined her for a few races.

Erik Read put down a smoking hot slalom run in the Santa Caterina (ITA) alpine combined, finishing with the secondfastest

slalom time in the field. He’ll be looking to put together two great runs to take a career-first World Cup top ten in

slalom. Read has been on fire this year scooping up four personal-best finishes since the start of the season, including two

top-ten finishes in giant slalom. Trevor Philp and Phil Brown will also be racing this weekend and looking for their first

tech points of the season.
