BISCHOFSWIESEN, Germany—Dave Duncan of London, Ont. Brian Cushing Womens Jersey ., and Marielle
Thompson of Whistler, B.C., extended Canadas medal streak on the ski cross World
Cup circuit Sunday. Duncan finished second in a mens event while Thompson was
third in the womens competition. The Canadian team has earned medals in all
eight World Cup races held this season, registering 16 podium finishes over that
span. “Its a good team,” said Canadian team coach Eric Archer. “Any given day
somebody goes out and someone else decides to step it up. “Weve got three races
left and if we can keep a two-podium average, I think thats a pretty good
season.” Filip Flisar of Slovenia captured the mens race ahead of Duncan.
Frances Jean Frederic Chapuis finished third. Competitors battled through snowy
conditions, which Duncan said impacted the race. “It was not an easy day,” he
said. “Mother Nature wasnt too kind to us over the weekend and today was no
different. “You definitely had to put that in the back of your mind and just go
for it and make your peace with whats out there and go.” The bad weather made it
tough to pass on the course, Duncan added. “My starts were basically the only
thing that kept me alive today,” Duncan said. “Filip Flisar had a start that was
equal to mine and when we went into the first turn he had position . . . there
wasnt really many opportunities to get by Filip and I knew the guys were on my
tail so it was still put it down as hard as you can but be safe because the
course was demanding “You had to be cautiously aggressive.” Katrin Mueller of
Switzerland captured the gold medal in the womens race, her first World Cup
victory. Ophelie David of France was second for the second straight race.
Thompson was content with her third-place finish, especially considering she
moved into second in the overall standings. “Ive love to stay in the (overall)
race,” she said. “But Im just taking it race to race and trying to keep my
skiing at the same point and hoping I can hold on to it.” Thompson said she got
a solid start in the final, standing second behind Mueller. But a miscue on jump
allowed David to get by into second spot. “Then I said, Just hold on to it,”
Thompson said. “Im happy being back on the podium but it would be nice to be on
top.” Arian Foster Pink Jersey . —Matt Cassel is

Tuesday night. DOHA, Qatar—Canadian cyclist Michael Barry has suffered a
broken elbow in a crash at the Tour of Qatar. The Toronto native, who rides for
Team Sky, confirmed the news via Twitter. “Thanks for the kind messages,” he
tweeted. “Sadly I broke my elbow. Surgery required. Hopefully back on the bike
before too long.” Barry took a hard fall 25 kilometres from the finish of
Wednesdays fourth stage. Team Sky coach Rod Ellingworth said on the teams
website that Barry was badly cut and had “taken a lot of skin off his back.”
Ellingworth said Barry was going flat out when someone in front of him went
down. “Michael said he just didnt have any chance at all to react—they were
doing about 70km/h at the time,” said Ellingworth. Meanwhile, Tom Boonen edged
closer to winning his fourth Qatar title when he grabbed the fourth stage ahead
of Tom Veelers and Fabian Cancellara. Riding under clear skies unlike the
previous day, Boonen timed his sprint to perfection, winning the 144.5-kilometre
stage from Al Thakhira at Madinat Al Shamal in the northern tip of Qatar. It
wwas Boonens second stage win this week and his 20th overall in Qatar. J.J.
Watt Pink Jersey
. He improved his overall lead against American
Tyler Farrar of Garmin-Barrucuda to 31 seconds with two stages to go. Farrar
suffered a puncture that hurt his team, which won the team time trial on Monday.
Farrar finished ninth on Wednesday. Spanish rider Juan Antonio Flecha of Sky
Team was third overall, 34 seconds off the pace. Boonen emerged the fittest of
the riders on a day when stage three winner Mark Cavendish of Britain was left
behind with nearly 30 kilometres remaining in the stage. Boonen, with help from
his Omega-Pharma Quick Step team, increased his break to 21 seconds as fellow
riders struggled due to strong crosswinds in the open areas near the finish line
in Madinat Al Shamal. With five kilometres to go, Boonen was racing Dutchman
Vellers and Swiss star Cancellara. But the tall Belgian—winner in Doha in
2006, 2008 and 2009—put in a perfect lunge for the finish line. On Thursday,
the riders start from the Camel Race Track and end the 160-kilometre stage five
at Al Khor Corniche. ’ ’ ’
