How patience on the slopes paid off for Dave Duncan

How patience on the slopes paid off for Dave Duncan

Good things come to those who wait. Just ask Dave Duncan who, after five years without a World Cup victory, stood atop two podiums in a row with back-to-back ski cross wins in Innichen-San Candido, Italy this past weekend.

In doing so, the London, ON native not only earned himself leadership of the overall men’s World Cup rankings but also our athlete of the week title.

“This is the stuff you dream of,” said Duncan whose performance also earned a Canadian slot for the 2014 Sochi Olympic Winter Games. “To be able to put the Sochi qualification behind me before Christmas . . . It will definitely take a lot of pressure off for those last three qualifying races in January.”

 

“It’s an incredible feeling and I struggle for words to truly describe how much it means to me to get that first win and not to have to wait 24 hours to get a second one in,” he said.

On the back of Sunday’s results, Duncan leads the individual men’s ski cross World Cup standings with 214 points. The Canadian ski cross team is now heading back to Canada for a break before returning to Europe for the last three World Cup stops left on the calendar prior to Sochi.
