Default Roark 3rd in Mont Gabriel Moguls

MONT GABRIEL, Que. (Jan. 26) - World Championships medalist Michelle Roark (Winter Park, CO) finished third, one-hundredth of a point away from second place, in a World Cup moguls contest Saturday. Nine U.S. skiers made it into finals, including four of the top eight men.

Russian Ekaterina Stolyarova won the women's event with 26.01 points in the 10-degree F. cold. Roark, who won last Sunday during the Nature Valley Freestyle Cup at Whiteface Mountain near Lake Placid, NY, had 25.70. She did a back-flip off the top jump and "bronco" off the bottom in which she does a full rotation with a side kick as she faces up-course on the spin.

In the men's contest, Guilbaut Colas of France had 26.38 points to 26.06 to Rusian Sharifullin of Russia. Dave Babic (Washington, VT) hit a back-flip X (with his skis crossed as he flipped) off the first jump and a D-spin (off-axis, double rotation) at the bottom. His run was worth 25.92, good for fourth place.

Newcomer Pat Deneen (Cle Elum, WA), who had two podiums a week ago at Whiteface, was sixth with 25.55 points. U.S. moguls champion Holt Haga (Boise, ID) was seventh and Nate Roberts (Park City, UT) eighth.

"Conditions were great, but Mont Gabriel is a flat course," U.S. Moguls Head Coach Scott Rawles said. "That means it's tough to really make things happen, so for Michelle to be on the podium and for Dave - whose top air was simply huge - to be in there, it took some excellent skiing"

Rawles also noted none of the nine Americans qualified higher than eighth, "so they got some good things done in their final run. Michelle was amazing again, just a hundredth out of second. And Heather McPhie (Bozeman, MT) was ninth, which was nice to see after some problems, which she had in Lake Placid."

The World Cup weekend ends Sunday with an aerials event. The next stop after Mont Gabriel will be the Visa Freestyle International Feb. 1-2 at Utah's Deer Valley Resort.

Default St. Onge, Cook Lead U.S. Aerialists

MONT GABRIEL, Que. (Jan. 27) - Ryan St. Onge (Winter Park, CO) was 10th and Emily Cook (Belmont, MA) 12th Sunday in producing the top results among U.S. skiers in a World Cup aerials competition at Mont Gabriel Ski Area.

Canadian Steve Omischl won his third event of the World Cup season. He had 249.72 points to top Anton Kushnir of Belarus (243.72) with Dmitri Dashinski, another Belarussian, in third place (243.58). St. Onge had 197.82 points for a full, double-full, full (four twists, three flips) and a double-full, full (three twists, two flips).

Alla Tsuper of Belarus was the women's winner in a narrow decision over China's Nina Li. Tsuper had 201.02 points with Li runner-up at 200.57. Lydia Lassila of Australia completed the podium at 200.21. Cook had trouble with her second landing on a full, double-full (three twists, two flips) and finished with 144.81.

The snow got soft because of all the rain and it's been super warm up here," said U.S. moguls coach Scott Rawles. "Shannon skied a good, clean run her jumps were clean, and you know she laid down a good run because she moved up from fourth. We're psyched for her because she's worked so hard all summer and finally has her health back. Combine those two things good training, good health and she's back!
