Engeli and Anderson top podium at Copper Nor-Am
Under sunny skies and textbook man-made snow conditions Hilde-Katrine Engeli and Jasey Jay Anderson have won the parallel slalom Nor-Am Cup event held in Copper Mountain November 14.
The Norwegian reigning PSL World Champion edged off Switzerland's Stefanie Mueller to the second spot while Canada's Caroline Calve rounded out the podium as third.
On the men's side, Calve's fellow countryman, reigning Olympic Champion Jasey Jay Anderson impressively underlined that old men can ride.
The 37-years-old from Mt. Tremblant, Quebec, beat Nevin Galmarini (SUI) in the men's finals. Rok Flander, who won Tuesday's parallel giant slalom, came in third.
After his season's first win and ten exhausting runs, Anderson stated: “It was a ground-breaking day for the rest of the season.”
The 37-year-old who builds his own boards explained, “I got some good mileage on my legs, and riding this many races in these kind of snow conditions gave me some ideas for a new direction for my boards, let’s just say I got a lot done today for development.”
