Lake Louise — The problems at the back have forced Quebec’s Erik Guay to give up the super-G world Cup in Lake Louise.
The skier of 36-years of Mont-Tremblant is the reigning world champion of the discipline.
Guay was also removed from the descent of Saturday, which was won by Switzerland’s Beat Feuz.
These problems at the back have disturbed the preparation of Guay in the last few weeks. He indicated that his condition had deteriorated following a training run on Friday.
Guay is the canadian male skier the most decorated history with 25 world Cup podiums and three world Championships.
The canadian team will travel to Beaver Creek, Colorado, for the next stage of the world Cup, which gets underway Friday.
