Canadian mogul skiiers dominated the World Cup scene once again when points leader Mikael Kingsbury and 2010 Olympic champion Alex Bilodeau earned gold and silver shared the podium for the third time this season.

For Deux-Montagnes, QC’s Kingsbury, the medal marks his fourth win of the year and a record 19th straight World Cup meda. A final score of 25.78 narrowly edged out Bilodeau’s score of 25.60.

“I’m very excited, to do a podium here and win, it’s the best feeling,” said Kingsbury of winning of the 2002 Olympic course. “It’s the best course in the world and I always look forward to this stop on the tour more than any other place. The course and the crowd and everything is just perfect here, so I’m just excited I won here again.”

Rosemere, QC’s Bilodeau was also thrilled with his podium finish after struggling with consistency this season.

“For me it’s the first time this season that I showed my best skiing,” said Bilodeau. “I made a small mistake in the middle section, but other than that I’m really happy. I skied really well, Mik skied really well. I struggled in training with my top air [a double twisting back flip] but I stomped it in the final and super final, and my bottom air I’ve been working on for so long and it’s finally getting really consistent.”
