Tommy Ford made history on Sunday by winning the Alpine World Cup Men’s GS race at Beaver Creek. It was the first U.S. Ski Team win on the men’s side since January 2017, the first podium on the men’s side since January 2018, and Ford joined Ted Ligety and Bode Miller to become only the third American man to win a World Cup tech race since Phil Mahre in 1983. On an individual level, it was Ford’s first-ever Alpine World Cup win and podium, and he had the fastest first and second run.
“Nothing beats [winning] here. I’ve been working hard,” Ford told the U.S. Ski Team. “There’s no secret, just kept it simple and really trusted what I was doing, with solid and clean skiing.”
