Drew Duffy locked his spot on the U.S. Ski Team after impressing coaches at a spring tryout camp held at Mammoth Mountain, but it was a silver medal at the National Junior Championships and his 19th place in super G at the Nature Valley U.S. Alpine Championships (one behind his bro) that bought him a ticket to the big show. It was Super G at the U.S. Alpine Championships at Sugarloaf, ME that surprised everyone—perhaps Duffy the most. Coming down 30th, Duffy crushed and found himself in first, sneaking ahead of veteran Steven Nyman. His reaction? "Cool!" and a thumbs up to the crowd. That's right, Duffy. Welcome to the C Team.
