Race 3 - June 10: Dual Slalom
When thunderclouds threatened to break directly over the Dual Slalom course at Sugar Mountain on Saturday evening, racing was halted with the eight-racer brackets yet to be run. Racers were told by officials to be dressed and ready to pick up the event where it left off at 3:30pm Sunday. When racing continued, top-seeded Australian Jared Graves placed first on the men's side and third-seeded Pruitt was the top finisher for the women.
"I was pretty disappointed with my results in the downhill today so I went back up to the house and sat there for awhile and thought 'I'm going to go win the slalom, that will make me feel better,'" Pruitt said. "Each round I went though, I just remembered what I wanted to do, what was my goal, and just made sure I got down the hill first every time."
