Pridys on downhill podium 

Snow conditions forced the cancellation of juvenile races on Grouse and Seymour last weekend, but Apex had more than enough of the white stuff to host a full Pontiac GMC Cup downhill event.

The first of two races on Sunday was cancelled by snow, but a race took place on Monday.

Ben Thomsen of Invermere captured the gold medal, while the Pridy brothers of Whistler placed second and third. Conrad Pridy finished within 0.15 seconds of Thomsen while his younger brother Morgan was third by just over a second.

"The fog stuck to your goggles and it was a distraction," said Conrad. "You had to think ahead a bit more. It was really important today to have done a good course inspection. I was pretty happy to come second after having two slow training runs."

Morgan Pridy was happy to have a medal to show for his day. "It's good to get on the podium, I had been in sort of a slump lately. My lines and approach have not been up to par."

Other Whistler skiers also made the top-15 with Daniel Kwong ninth and Benjamin MacLean 12 th .

The Apex stop of the tour continues through the week. Results are posted daily at www.bcalpine.com.
