Team Summit tops podiums across Rockies

Led by George Rodney’s victory in his first-ever big-mountain event (held at Red Mountain in British Colombia), Team Summit athletes were out in force across the Rocky Mountain region this past weekend.

Rodney was making the very best of his debut in a new discipline.

“George had great results in our alpine racing program the last few years and decided to give big-mountain competition a try. His solid skills and heart make him a force in this discipline,” said freestyle program director Chris Carson.

The team started the weekend on Jan. 21 at the Surefoot Colorado Ski Cup in Winter Park. The Team Summit boys captured all three podium positions led by Mark Miller (first place), Conor McDonald (second) and Victor Major (third). Miller was coming off his win in the downhill held the day before in which Major skied to a second-place finish.

On Sunday, Hunter Black took the top spot in the super combined, while Miller finished off the four days of racing with a third-place podium to finish with two first places, one second and two thirds.

Up in Steamboat Springs at the USASA Ski and Snowboard Cross races, Team Summit athletes kept the medals coming. Led by first-place finishes from Annie Hayes (youth women’s) and Duncan Campbell (breaker boys), the snowboard team also took podium positions with Allison Dudley (second place, youth women’s), Alex Cerney (third, open class men) and Tess Albert (third, breaker girls).

“We are very proud of our athletes. They held their own with a very competitive field” said Sasha Nations, snowboard program director for Team Summit.
