Compiled From Wire Services

Olympic medalists Picabo Street and Hilary Lindh of the U.S. Ski Team won North American Championship Series super-G races at Sugarloaf USA.

Street, the 1994 Olympic downhill silver medalist from Sun Valley, Idaho, won the first event in 1 minute, 22.54 seconds. Kate Pace of Canada, the reigning world downhill champion, was second at 1:23.89, followed by Lindh, the 1992 Olympic downhill silver medalist from Juneau, Alaska, at 1:24.03.

“It was snowing consistently for the whole course, so every racer faced the same visibility problems” on the 2,042-meter Narrow Gauge Trail, Street said after her winning run.

Lindh was first in the second race in 1:11.31, followed by Pace in 1:11.93 and Lindsey Roberts of Canada in 1:12.10.
