Cultus Lake’s Reece Howden Capped a Strong Weekend at the FIS Ski Cross World Cup in Idre Fjäll, Sweden

Idre Fjäll, Sweden/Calgary (Alpine Canada) – It was frustrating trying to watch the overnight coverage of Reece Howden’s ski cross race, as CBC dropped the feed.

However, it was double podium day for Canada at Sunday’s FIS Ski Cross World Cup in Idre Fjäll, Sweden. Reece Howden (Cultus Lake, BC) capped a strong weekend with a win in the men’s race, and Marielle Thompson (Whistler BC) raced to third place in the women’s race.

On another beautiful day in Idre Fjäll, Howden was dominant. After finishing second in yesterday’s World Cup race, Howden won all today’s heats and led from start to finish in the finals. This is Howden’s second win of the season and fifth consecutive podium.

“It’s pretty sweet,” said grinning Howden. “It’s been a lot of work and having to do five races a day is tough. Fortunately, right now I’m fast and I’m focusing mentally to control what I can, and to keep fighting to just send it! It seems to be working out for me and I want to keep it rolling.”
