PARK CITY — John Teller will turn 30 in a few days and now has an extra reason to celebrate after winning Friday’s skicross Grand Prix.
“I like to say I’m 30 years young,” Teller said. “I’m still 18 at heart, though.”
Of course, seeing two of his teenage skicross students alongside him on the podium Friday no doubt made him feel a tad older.
Teller used to coach Tyler Wallasch in football back in Mammoth Lakes, Calif., which both call home. On Friday he had the 18-year-old chasing him down Doc’s Run at Canyons Resort for second place on the podium. Canada’s Stanley Hayer was third in the competition in Park City.
