World Cup Downhill Lake Louise

World Cup Downhill Lake Louise

Dominik Paris of Italy won the the first FIS World Cup downhill race of the season at Lake Louise, Alberta (Canada) on Saturday. Paris completed the course in a total time of 1:49:90, which was .03 better than Klaus Kroell of Austria. Adrien Theaux of France was third with a time of 1:50:01, followed by Aksel Lund Svindal in fourth with a time of 1:50:13 and Johan Clarey of France in fifth in 1:50:64.

Dominik Paris is one of the world’s best downhill racers. He is the reigning World Championships silver medalist, was third in last year’s FIS World Cup standings and won two World Cup downhills last season.

But Aksel Lund Svindal was considered the man to beat in Lake Louise, given he is the reigning world champion, World Cup champion and won both speed races at the Canadian track last year. Bode Miller finished at the 16th place, the top American, in his first downhill race after sitting out all of last season following knee surgery.
