BRYDON FINISHES 11TH AS AUSTRIAN RUMPFHUBER WINS SECOND TRAINING RUN


VanderBeek ends second training for Bombardier Winterstart DH in 25th position

LAKE LOUISE, AB (November 29th, 2007) – Emily Brydon (Fernie, BC) led the Canadian contingent on the second day of Downhill training at Lake Louise Mountain Resort, finishing in 11th place.

The three-time Canadian Downhill champion finished with a time of one minute 50.63 seconds.

“I was a little nervous in the start after yesterday. A fall is a fall so I was a little nervous and just wanted to have a solid run today,” Brydon said.


“I’m not good enough to be able to play it really cool in training and then show up on race day and do something really special. I think it’s a good attitude to have, you’re constantly teaching yourself to be in race mode and to really push it,” Brydon added.


Austrian Ingrid Rumpfhuber finished in 1:49.77s grabbing the top spot by just 0.02 over teammate Elisabeth Goergl while Monika Dumermuth of Switzerland was third.


Kelly VanderBeek (Kitchener, ON), who finished sixth in the first of two DH’s in Lake Louise last year, came 25th in today’s training run in a time of 1:51.31.


“I made a big mistake on the top flats, I hit the ice and was a bit like Bambi on ice and almost missed the next turn so other than that it was still fairly solid and I’m really happy that my air was good today,” said VanderBeek.


“Today I think a few things were in my mind, like the jumps and I knew it was faster today too. It went really well as a whole and there are a few things I can touch up and I know where the second and a half was so that’s a good thing when you know where it is,” she said.


Last season’s Coupe Nor-Am Cup Ladies Downhill champ Sherry Lawrence (Calgary, AB) was 47th and Danielle Poleschuk (Calgary, AB) came in 52nd.


Switzerland’s Tamara Wolf was transferred to Mineral Springs Hospital in Banff after a crash with what the official Race Organizing Committee report indicated was an apparent break to the tibia and fibula.


 

A decision on the start time for the final training run will be made following tonight’s Team Captain’s meeting. It is tentatively scheduled to start at 11:30 a.m. Coverage of the Bombardier Lake Louise Ladies DH on CBC’s Pontiac Alpine Ski Series begins at 5 p.m. ET on Saturday.
