From Park City, USA
(Nov. 29, 2017) Defending North America’s Cup champion John Farrow once again took gold in Park City, this time setting the fast time in both heats on his way to victory.

Farrow managed to cover the ground laid out by Blaser, and then some, winning by a total of .31 over the American.
Blaser’s time in both heats were the second fastest of the race, as he cruised to a silver medal, .27 ahead of Race 5 silver medalist Katsuyuki Miyajima of Japan, who finished third.
Seunggi Jung of Korea edged teammate Hansin Lee for fourth, while Lee settled for fifth. American Austin Florian finished sixth.
Paul Fraser finished eighth to lead the Canadian charge. Mark Lynch finished just outside of the top 10 in 11th, while Kyle Murray missed a second run by .09 and finished 21st.
