Andrew Weibrecht sliced the Crans Montana soft snow for 20th in the second Audi FIS Alpine World Cup super G as Austrian Benni Raich earned the first super G victory of his storied career. Ted Ligety produced another point scoring result with 22nd and young gun Ryan Cochran-Siegle was 26th for the second World Cup points of his career.
Ligety is currently 81 points behind Austrian Marcel Hirscher in the giant slalom standings.
“Weibrecht made a significant mistake and struggled to get his speed back. On the long delay across the traverse near the bottom, he came in way inside the lines. It looked like he was going to belly it out, but it didn’t work out. It was very simple, just a tactical error. It was tough because he has been working on not hooking up and being more aggressive at the top of the turn, but in that one situation he actually had to do the opposite”, said Sasha Rearick, Head Coach
