Copper Mountain, Colorado (Friday, Dec. 13, 2013) - Tyler Werry continued his stellar run on the Nor-Am circuit today with a rare Nor-Am victory in the men's super-G at Copper Mountain in one minute, 26.39 seconds, topping a strong field of U.S. Ski Team and Canadian Alpine Ski Team athletes. 

Werry, 22, who has been training with the national development team and is fresh off his first-ever World Cup start last week in Beaver Creek, Colo., proved his recent Nor-Am success (3rd place in Nor-Am giant slalom in Loveland, Colo.) was no fluke. Werry now sits third in the overall Nor-Am standings. 

"I was struggling with the downhill course here at Copper," said Werry, from the  Fernie Alpine Ski Team. "It was nice to get some more swing in the super-G today. There weren't any tricks so I was confident that good skiing would be the key to success. I felt like I executed how I wanted to, and to get a win is amazing." 

Werry was the only Canadian to stand on the super-G podium, and his slalom run wasn't bad either, landing him just off the podium in 4th position, again as top Canadian, in the super combined (one super-G and one slalom run combined). 

BC Ski Team's Broderick Thompson (Whistler Mountain Ski Club) put down the fastest slalom run of the day to secure top spot on the Junior (U21) podium in Friday's Nor-Am super combined race. 

"After making a couple mistakes in the super-G, I knew I had to go as hard as I could in the slalom," said Thompson. "The set was great and it was hero snow, so I knew I had to put it all on the line with my early start number. I felt like I had a pretty good slalom run and I am very happy with the result." 

Thompson was the third fastest Canadian, finishing 9th overall in the super combined. 

"It was a great day for the guys," said men's BC Team coach, Nick Cooper. "Awesome to see Ty get the win and Brod win the U21 super combined. Brodie (Seger) and Martin (Grasic) also had good days of super-G, moving way up and skiing really well. Unfortunately Blake (Ramsden) went out in a tricky section that claimed a lot of victims today, but he is skiing well and will be ready for tomorrow."
