Janyk Captures Europa Cup GS Title - BC Alpine Ski Association

Canadian Alpine Ski Team racer Britt Janyk has become the first Canadian woman in eight years to win an overall title on the Europa Cup circuit. Victories at Abatone, Italy and St. Sebastien, Austria, and a third place podium finish helped the Whistler, B.C. native capture the overall giant slalom title. “This gives me a lot of confidence that I will be able to take with me into World Cup next season,” Janyk, 21, said Monday at Whistler where she is preparing to race all four disciplines at the Pontiac GMC Canadian Championships over the next week. “It shows that I'm on top of the European circuit – and there are a lot of World Cup girls who race there.”
