around a tight right-hand turn, nearly flipping forward and
then inexplicably bouncing back to shape.
“I really have to stop making those saves,” said Vonn,
who climbed another 40 points closer to Riesch (who fin-
ished sixth) to cut the deficit to 923-827 through 16 of 38
scheduled races. “It’s probably pretty fun to watch on TV,
but they’re definitely not fast. First and second is a great
weekend and I’m really, really happy.”
Swiss skiers bookended the podium as Dominique Gisin
joined Gut on the podium. She finished 0.72 seconds back
in third for her second podium of the season following a
third-place result in a Lake Louise downhill. It was her fifth
career World Cup podium. “I’m just happy I was able to let
myself go today and take risks,” Gisin told Fisalpine.com.
I’m on a good path — our whole team was great today.”
Nicole Hosp had the home crowd singing as she threat-
ened Gut’s lead seven racers later with faster split times
down the majority of the course. But the bottom of the
course was the difference as Hosp slipped 1. 31 seconds
back to finish fifth behind teammate Elizabeth Goergl in
Janyk was solid again with her season-best finish in ninth.
Teammate Marie-Michele Gagnon took the last scoring
position in 30th.
“It was a good race, I’m really happy,” said Janyk. “It was
a tight race and I’m definitely going in the right direction as
I am now counting the hundredth of seconds and not the
seconds between me and the leader.”
Mancuso repeated her previous day’s result in 16th while
teammate Laurenne Ross continued to show promise in
23rd. Stacey Cook, Leanne Smith and Chelsea Marshall
just missed the points, finishing 31, 32, 34.
Lindsey Vonn, Lara Gut and Dominique Gisin
make up the Zauchensee Super G podium.
