  • Ligety Streak Ends at Beaver Creek | USSA - Foundation
    to the best time In general I m happy with my skiing so far and hopefully I can bring this momentum back to Europe When speaking of his record setting victory Hirscher looked forward to climbing the all time wins ladder setting his sights towards the closest Austrian on the list Benjamin Raich Now we are getting closer to the records that are I think pretty heavy It is great to be on top of both technical disciplines It is really amazing and I m looking forward to Benjamin Raich s record of 36 career World Cup wins to Hirscher s 33 Hopefully I can catch that too in a couple of years For the Americans Tim Jitloff and David Chodounsky both made it into the points finishing in 14th and 16th place respectively It s nice to always be in the points but I m looking for a little more than 14th place Jitloff admitted I skied really good today solid first run I think I just could have cleaned it up a little on that first run In the second run I felt like I skied really well I was pushing it towards the bottom had a mistake there on the final pitch The snow was super super aggressive I m a guy that likes to push hard on the ski so that s not necessarily my forte I ll do better at places like Alta Badia where it s a little bit icy Chodounsky who is known more for his slalom skills was excited to start his World Cup season with some hard earned GS points It s been a long fall a long prep season it just feels great to be racing again Chodounsky said To have it start this way with a GS I m pretty psyched Andrew Weibrecht Lake Placid NY also skied out first run while Tommy Ford Bend OR and Michael Ankeny Deephaven MN did not qualify for a second run The men s tour now heads across the pond to Val d Isere France for slalom and GS races Dec 12 13 HIGHLIGHTS Ted Ligety fell on the first run and DNFed Tim Jitloff was 14th and David Chodounsky was 16th Ted Ligety had won the last four GSs at Beaver Creek and five of the last six It is the 33rd career World Cup win for Marcel Hirscher and his 15th in GS It was Chodounsky s best GS result topping last season s 17th place at Beaver Creek The men now head to Val d Isere France for slalom and GS races Dec 12 13 QUOTES Ted Ligety The snow is super aggressive more aggressive than yesterday I wasn t skiing good anywhere I was trying to get a feeling for it A lot of guys are having trouble with how much the snow transformed overnight to being so aggressive because it was so cold and clear That s catching a lot of guys off guard and for sure
