Edi Podivinsky’s win in Saalbach, Austria is a test case in the never quit Canadian attitude. Rallying from 18th place on the first run Podivinsky went on to win the downhill, beating out teammate Cary Mullen, the first-run leader and finished 2nd Place. The victory was the first for a Canadian in a men’s World Cup downhill race since Rob Boyd won at Whistler in 1989.
