Kelowna’s Eric Neilson cracked the top 10 for the fourth time this season on the World Cup skeleton circuit.
The 31-year-old Neilson slid his way to an eight-place showing Saturday at a race in Konigsee, Germany.
“Raced substantially better than I trained,” Neilson wrote on his Twitter account.
Neilson, a Rutland Secondary grad, is now ranked seventh overall in the 2012-13 season’s World Cup men’s standings.
This weekend, Neilson and the Canadian team will be in Igls, Austria for the latest stop on the World Cup schedule.
Serwa in France
Kelsey Serwa and the Canadian ski cross team are competing this week at a World Cup ski cross event in Megeve, France, with the finals set for Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Serwa is coming off a 10th-place showing at a World Cup race last Saturday in Les Contamines, France.
Serwa, who was fourth-fastest in the qualification round, advanced to the finals. Her day ended quickly when she was third in a stacked quarter-final that also included Sweden’s Anna Holmlund and Austria’s Katrin Ofner.
Serwa won her first World Cup of the season in December in Italy
