#1 worried that the pace is not there. W von miaowang123 12.11.2019 10:06

Canadas freestyle ski team will have a decidedly different look this season. The likes of Justine Dufour-Lapointe, Dara Howell and Mikael Kingsbury will be there, but there was one glaring absence on the squad unveiled Wednesday. Two-time Olympic moguls gold medallist Alex Bilodeau retired after the last World Cup season, leaving a big hole on the team as it begins the long road to the 2018 Games in South Korea. Bilodeau became the first Canadian to win Olympic gold on home soil with his memorable victory at the 2010 Games in Vancouver, and he repeated the performance in Sochi earlier this year. Kingsbury, who battled Bilodeau for the last few years and finished second in Russia this winter, says he will miss competing against his rival. The first couple World Cups, Im going to miss somebody to look up to and to learn from. Hes been a great athlete, Kingsbury said on a conference call. He pushed me. Since I was very young, he was my role model. Kingsbury is a three-time overall World Cup champion, and while he and Bilodeau were friends away from the hill, they were fierce opponents on it. Im going to miss him in a way, but in another way he was one of the strongest competitors to have, said Kinsbury, a native of Deux Montagnes, Que. Im going to try to have new motivation, to continue to push and work hard to stay ranked first in the world. Kingsbury, who turns 22 next week, said Bilodeaus retirement doesnt open any doors because hes already had a lot of success in his young career. He was the star for sure. He won the Olympics in Vancouver -- first (Canadian) gold medallist to win on home soil -- and Sochi, Kingsbury said. He won the two days that he needed to win, but at the same time I dont think its my turn to shine because I won the Crystal Globe and he was there, I won the world championship and he was there. At the Olympics he did his run. I tried everything I could to win but he had the run that he needed and he totally deserved it. Like the rest of the freestyle ski team, Kingsburys focus is primed on training for the coming season, with thoughts of the 2018 Olympics in South Korea also lingering. I just want to continue what Ive been doing, and not do more because Alex is not there, he said. If he would have continued I would have been super happy and still would have worked hard to win the gold medal in 2018. Thats my next plan. Its four years -- four years is long. Im going to be ready for 2018 but theres many things to come. Dufour-Lapointe won gold in Sochi in womens moguls, and will now take it one year at a time as she starts to build towards the next Games. The same is true of teammate Audrey Robichaud, who finished 10th in the womens moguls in Sochi. Personally I feel like Im still on a high from the Olympics, said Robichaud, a native of Quebec City. What keeps me going is I feel like I can still get better and theres room for improvement. Also headlining the Canadian team for the 2014-15 season is Howell, who topped the podium in womens slopestyle in Sochi, Chloe Dufour-Lapointe -- the silver medallist in moguls behind her younger sister at the Games -- and Kim Lamarre, who finished third in slopestyle. The other Sochi medallist on this years team is Mike Riddle, who took silver in halfpipe. The rest of the Canadian freestyle team for the upcoming year includes: aerial skiers Travis Gerrits, Olivier Rochon, Jean-Christophe Andre and Sabrina Guerin; halfpipe skiers Mike Riddle, Justin Dorey, Simon dArtois, Rosalind Groenewoud, Keltie Hansen, Megan Gunning; slopestyle skiers Alex Beaulieu-Marchand, Alex Bellemare, Evan McEachran and Kaya Turski; and moguls skiers Marc-Antoine Gagnon, Philippe Marquis and Maxime Dufour-Lapointe.

The Canadiens Get: LW Thomas Vanek and a conditional fifth-round pick.The rivalry between Carlos Sainz and Max Verstappen has the potential to become more intense than that of Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton, says Sky Sports F1 pundit Martin Brundle. Sainz and Verstappen eventually finished the Australian GP in ninth and 10th respectively but the teenager was furious with both Toro Rosso and his team-mate at Albert Park.Verstappen, last seasons Rookie of the Year, felt he was held up by Sainz on several occasions - most notably behind Jolyon Palmer in the Renault. Both youngsters have been tipped as future superstars and, as Rosberg and Hamilton have proved during their time at Mercedes, a spiky relationship off the track makes for compelling viewing.The squabble between these two emerging stars in Formula 1 is going to be like Hamilton and Rosberg - but probably even more intense, noted Brundle during commentary on Sunday. 2016 Australian GP ratingsVerstappen, fifth on the grid, started the grand prix strongly, keeping Hamilton at bay during his first stint.

It should be fine.I knew I was much faster today. Im not worried that the pace is not there. We just had a bad pitstop and then when you come out you are behind. To be honest for me its fine. I feel I have everything under control. I dont feel the pressure of him. Im focussing ahead, thats my competition.Sainz, meanwhile, insists he doesnt have an issue with the 18-year-old but that he did not miss any overtaking moves during the race.I overtook eight or ten cars today on a track, he said.Sky F1s Damon Hill also claimed Verstappens complaining was misguided, adding: That was the first sign of immaturity weve seen from Max.Dont miss the F1 Report for all the reaction and analysis from the Australian GP.
