Team GOODE skiers will be looking to continue a recent string of strong Mailibu Open finishes when the 2015 Malibu Open Festival returns to Milwaukee this weekend.
The biggest streak on the line will be Regina’s three straight Malibu titles. Past winner Thomas Degasperi will be looking to regain the title after landing on the podium at last year’s event, while Daniel Odvarko will seek to keep his personal hot streak going after winning last weekend’s European Championships. Dane Mechler, who won last year’s Malibu Open Under 21 Men’s slalom title, will be stepping up to take on the Open Men’s field.
Additional Team GOODE skiers expected to compete in the Open divisions include Carlo Allais, Trent Finlayson, Lauren Morgan, Martin Bartalsky, and Benjamin Stadlbaur. World No. 1 Chris Parrish will miss the competition with a shoulder injury.
Zach Montavon, Quinn Haines and Ruth McCreary will compete in Junior slalom, while Brando Caruso will ski in Under 21 Men’s slalom.
