Tim Cafe Carves His Way to a Career Best Finish in Super G at World Championships

“My ultimate goal this season was a top 30 finish,” said Cafe. “While not quite there this was close enough and I am happy with the result.”

“The course was icy and bumpy and competition was tough,” said Cafe. “I made a few mistakes that I would have liked to avoid but nobody had a perfect run.”

“Europe is no place to mess about; it’s step up or go home territory.”

Cafe’s teammate, Ben Griffin, also had a notable finish, placing 32nd.

After a few days training in the Black Forest the boys have just returned to Garmisch for the Alpine World Championships Giant Slalom and Slalom races.

Griffin is guaranteed a starter in the Giant Slalom race as he is in the top-50. Cafe will have to finish top-25 in a qualifying event the previous day. Both have to qualify in the top-25 at a qualifying event for the Slalom race.

An excited and thankful Cafe said, “I am starting to achieve my goals on the world stage and there is no way I could be doing it without all of my supporters back home.”
