1/20/10: Gorgone, Reiter finish 10th in Switzerland event

Michelle Gorgone and Justin Reiter each finished 10th on Sunday in a parallel giant slalom event in Nendaz, Switzerland.

Although each rider would have enjoyed going further in the event, the top-10 finish was a sign that things are moving in the right direction.

“This was a big step up for Justin to make it where he is — little frustrating to not go further, but a good result,” U.S. Snowboarding Alpine coach Jan Wengelin said in a U.S. Ski Team release.

Wengelin said after a slow start to the season for Gorgone, the 10th-place finish is a good finish.

“This was good for Michelle to get in a top-10 result for the season,” Wengelin said.

The team has one more World Cup on Sunday in Stoneham, Quebec, before the Olympic teams are announced Monday.

Canadians sweep women’s PGS event

CRYSTAL MOUNTAIN, Wash. (March 25) – In an all American men’s final, Justin Reiter (Steamboat Springs, CO) swept 2006 Olympian Tyler Jewell (Sudbury, MA) on both championship runs to capture the men’s alpine Parallel Giant Slalom (PGS) title and the U.S. National Championship on Saturday at the 2006 North American Snowboarding Finals at Washington’s Crystal Mountain. It was Reiter’s second win in two tries on the Crystal Mountain PGS course and his first NorAm and U.S. national title.

The U.S. women’s title was won by Erica Mueller (Chester, VT) with a fourth place finish overall in an event that was swept by the Canadians. The alpine snowboarders are among 82 riders from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Ireland, Poland, and the Philippines competing for U.S. and Canadian national titles in the NorAm PGS event at Crystal Mountain.

“This win feels great – I love Crystal,” said Reiter who has had two top three PGS finishes in 2006 and finished third at the 2005 NorAm PGS at Sun Peaks, Canada. After edging Jewell on the first of two championship runs, Reiter secured the win when Jewell caught an edge entering the final stretch on Crystal’s Gold Hills course. “This is a pretty tough hill and the snow was choppy,” he said following his second and decisive championship run. “Tyler is a strong rider and very strong willed – he’s a great competitor.” Eric Warren (Bennington, VT) finished third among American men. Junior rider Matt Morison surpassed Michael Lambert and 2006 Olympian Phillipe Berube to capture both the Canadian and Canadian Junior National Championship.

In women’s competition, Canadian Olympian Alexa Loo defeated Kimiko Zakreski to cap a Canadian sweep of the top three PGS spots winning both NorAm and Canadian national titles. Following Mueller, Lynn Ott (Bend, OR) was second among U.S. women while Lindsay Lloyd (Centerville, UT) was third. “This is so rad,” said Loo, after her winning run. “I’ve had cake all year and this is the icing. It’s a great finish.” Canadian Caroline Cave finished third. Lynn Ott (Bend, OR) and Lindsay Lloyd (Centerville, UT) finished second and third among American women.

In NorAm junior competition, Vic Wild (White Salmon, WA) and Callan Chythlook-Sifsof (Girdwood, AK) won men’s and women’s junior U.S. titles while Marianne Leeson joined Morison as the Canadian champions.

Racing continues on Sunday with men’s and women’s NorAm competition in the parallel giant slalom. For complete results please visit
