National ski cross team member returns to action Jan. 11 in France

Mathieu Leduc’s quest for a berth at the 2014 Winter Olympics resumes Jan. 11 at an FIS Ski Cross World Cup race in Megeve, France.

The 24-year-old national ski cross team member from Comox says he has been super busy this season. “Races started off well with a 12th place result at the World Cup in Nakiska (Alberta) in early December.

 

“Had some tough conditions in Europe and didn’t get the results I would have liked. Olympics are still looking like a long shot, but I’ll try to get some strong results this month before the Olympic break, and you never know.”

The Winter Olympics run Feb. 7-23 in Sochi, Russia. The Canadian team will be announced Jan. 27.
