SALT LAKE CITY - Utah skier Mark Engel recently represented the U.S. Ski Team in Kitzbuehel, Austria at the FIS World Cup Hahnenkaam race in Austria. The historic race is called the most popular World Cup event of the season.
Engel, who was making his first World Cup start, finished 71st in the super-G, and did not finish the slalom run of the super combined.
"Kitzbuehel was awesome!," Engel wrote on Facebook after the race. "Although I didn't make the finish, that was the most fun I've had at a ski race. Hope I can go back next year and race it again!"
The World Cup is the top international circuit for alpine skiing.
While in Austria he also competed at Kirchberg in the slalom, finishing 24th.
Engel was a two-year member of the U.S. Ski Team (2011-13). He has two top-five finishes for the Utes this season, in the giant slalom and slalom at the Pat Miller Invitational.
