I led the first climb and felt great on the low angle terrain. I was caught by Jason, Tom and Marshall on the icy, tricky steep skin through the woods. Max Taam came into the picture after the 1st descent. He passed me for the final time on the 4,000' descent (top to bottom JH). Max proceeded to pass Jason Dorais. He came from behind and missed the W by 5 seconds to Tom Goth.
Excited to travel to Verbier, Switzerland and race with Team USA.
Men's Top 8 Qualifiers
Jason Dorais (Scarpa)
Scott Simmons (Scarpa)
Max Taam (Scarpa)
Jon Brown (Scarpa)
Its no coincidence that half of the top 8 were skiing Aliens. Look for the new Alien 2.0 coming to a race near you soon!
Working hard for Scarpa
All the support helped me finish 3rd overall at the Roundup.
