Steve Nyman had an amazing come-from-behind win at the Saslong Classic on Saturday. The Utah downhiller put a mark on his comeback returning to the site of his 2006 Audi FIS Alpine World Cup win to do it again! Steven Nyman came out of the 37th start position to steal a victory on the foggy, snowy Saslong Classic after hours of delays. It was his second career win and fourth podium. Travis Ganong finished with a career best tenth place finish.

Nyman missed all of the 2012 season with a torn left Achilles, which makes this comeback win that much more meaningful to him and his fans.

When asked about Nyman’s thoughts on his win, he responded, “I'm just happy to feel good again. My body's feeling good. I had the flu, but battled that off. I had rib issues the first few races because I put it into the fence while training in Copper. The Achilles last year, the knees years before that and the back -  this is the best gift I could have.”
