Lennea in 14th

The World Cup season is underway for the Canadian Disabled Alpine Ski Team, and they are already showing results.

After soft snow forced the cancellation of the downhill on Sunday, the giant slalom on Monday in Tignes, France went ahead. Still, the conditions were tough, and 35 out of a field of 98 racers didn't make it to the finish line.

Paralympic bronze medallist Scott Patterson of Surrey was the top Canadian, in 10 th place. Whistler's Brad Lennea was 14 th in his World Cup debut. Two other Canadians, Daniel Wesley and Jeff Penner, sat the race out with minor injuries.
