VOICE OF THE PLAYER: BRYCE BENNETT

Bryce Bennett began skiing as a toddler and was put into a ski training programme at a young age. He began racing as he went through school, and by the time he was eight he had decided that he wanted to race professionally.

 

2016 brought Bennett his first World Cup downhill points at Birds of Prey when he landed in 29th. But it was in Val Gardena that Bennett really WOW'd the crowd. Starting in 57th, Bennett came down on the classic Saslong downhill track, Bennett crossed the finish line 1.04 seconds back in sixth place. The once hush crowd erupted in cheers as Bennett lifted his goggles in sheer disbelief before letting a well-deserved fist pump fly.

 

In 2017, Bennett found consistency in the points, finishing in the top 30 in more than half of the World Cup races he started - highlighted by another top 10 (eighth) on his favorite Val Gardena, Italy track, and his first super-G points, with 20th at Santa Caterina, Italy. He carried that momentum into the 2018 season, where he has finished in the points in every race he's finished.
