Downhill World Champion Rosser victorious in Canada Cup women's opener

Mitchell descends to victory in Mt. Tremblant

The first downhill race of the 2011 Canada Cup Series was held on Sunday in Mont Tremblant, and Andrew Mitchell and Lauren Rosser took the victory in their respective gender categories as they raced down the treacherous 2.3-km course in the Laurentians.

Mitchell won the men's race with a time of 4:08.060, while Dean Tennant came second and Yann Gauvin took the third spot.

"The race went well, today's track was tuff and gruelling, maybe one of the hardest I've done. I'm hoping to do the rest of the Canada Cup races permitting me as I will be traveling overseas to compete at the remaining World Cups this year," Andrew Mitchell, the 2010 Canadian Champion in downhill.

"My next race will be the US Open. I am looking forward to this as the competition in this race gets ramped up! With lots if big names..."

In the women's race, Rosser sped down the technical course and crossed the line with a time of 4:51.966 for the top spot. Miranda Millar placed second, while Danice Uyseugi took the third position.

"I had a solid run, got through clean and am really happy with getting the win," said Rosser, who is the 2010 Junior World Champion.

In doing so, both winners take the lead of the Canada Cup downhill series. In total, athletes will fight for the ultimate championship title in three races throughout the season. The Canada Cup Champions will be crowned at the last event of the season in Panorama, British Columbia.

The next Canada Cup race will be held in Baie-Saint-Paul, Québec on May 29, 2011. It is the second cross country race of the national series.

The Canada Cups races in Mont-Tremblant are also considered as Quebec Cup races and also count toward provincial standings.
