WINTER PARK, Colo. — Dustin Cook of Canada crashed the party at U.S. championships and won the super-G, ending the reign of Tommy Ford.
Cook finished in a time of 1 minute, 10.34 seconds on Friday to hold off Ford by 0.04 seconds. That's quite an accomplishment since Ford has been so dominant at nationals in recent seasons, capturing seven titles.
Brennan Rubie and Jared Goldberg tied for third.
Earlier in the day, Julia Mancuso flew through the sun-splashed course to conquer the soft snow and defend her super-G crown.
The Olympic gold medalist finished in a time of 1:10.38 to beat Leanne Smith by 1.2 seconds. Laurenne Ross was third.
Mancuso extended her record to 14 national titles. She's coming off a stellar World Cup season in which she won two events.
