Whitefish, MT, Feb. 3--She may have had to wait quite some time for the race to finally get underway, but it didn't bother Alison Powers as she took first Wednesday in a Super Series super G at Big Mountain.

The first women's speed race of the Super Series season finally got off the ground Wednesday after several postponements. The events, which also includes a pair of downhills on Friday and Saturday, were originally scheduled to be held at Mammoth Mountain, Calif. in late November and early December. However inadequate course conditions forced the change of dates and venue. The super G was again halted Tuesday at Big Mountain due to inclement weather which included snow, wind and fog.

Powers won the race on the Toni Matt course by a sizable margin, postinga 1:06.47. Canadian Anne Marie LeFrancois was second in 1:07.15 and Kelly Stempihar of the U.S. was third with a 1:07.26. Powers is now in 10th place in the overall Super Series standings with the win.

It has been a solid 2000 for Powers as she won the SG and placed second in the DH at a Europa Cup in Austria in late January.

Fifteen-year old Julia Mancuso (Tahoe City, CA) finished sixth with a time of 1:07.77. She is the top American in the Super Series standings, currently fifth.

Following the two downhills on Friday and Saturday, the women's portionof the Super Series concludes with the championships (SL and GS) at Deer Valley and Park City, Utah on Feb. 7-10.
