Our first North American World Cup race weekend is behind us and here are some of the Slytech highlights:

Saturday’s Aspen Giant Slalom:

saw an 8th Julia Mancuso with Slytech arm guards. She was so good after the first run, but then lost positions in the second. Good run for her

18th Sarah Schleper, (slytech-shred)She raced with the orange Brain with a blue flower on the helmet. really funny. The race wasn t so good for her, she can be faster!

Sunday’s Aspen Slalom:

8th place Lindsay Vonn raced on Slytech shin guards. She seemed more self confident.

15th Michelle Gagnon: she raced with Slytech shin guards and had a fantastic 2nd.

25th Resi Stigler: The first race after the injury, she is happy to be back on the snow and she was pretty good considering that the Aspen conditions were somewhat sloppy for the slalom. She raced with her Slytech 2nd Skin Back Protector and Slytech Nervous Shin guards.

The Men’s Lake Louise Downhill:

4th Silvan Zurbriggen: great race for him. He s in a good shape and really good in all the disciplines. In the downhill he used the Slytech Back Protector.

18th Feuz Beat: the young swiss guy is coming.

Men’s Lake Louise Super G:

9th Silvan Zurbriggen. an other wonderful race for the swiss. really good week end for him in Canada. he raced with the slytech arm guards!

23rd Ted Ligety. Good race if we consider that speed events are not his races.

Next week’s men’s race will be in Beaver Creek, Colorado and the women head up to Lake Louise. Laters!
