Private victory since the month of January last, the American Lindsey Vonn has put an end to this long famine Saturday morning, at Val d’isère, on the occasion of the first Super-G held in the French resort. Part in the sixth position, Vonn took advantage of race conditions rather correct compared to most of its rivals to sign the best time of the race (1’04″86). The numerous interruptions have allowed him to hang on to first place to win a 78th victory in the world Cup, improving a little more the longest female that belongs to him.
The Italian Sofia Goggia (+0″31), and the Norwegian Ragnhild Mowinckel (+0″39) have managed each of which is a fine performance by hooking the podium. Side French Tessa Worley has committed a big mistake which has been postponed to the 26th place (+2″19). Romane Miradoli (+1″08, 11th), and Tiffany Gauthier (+1’20”, 13th) were able to hang in the Top 15. The first named has missed the Top 10 for a hundredth of a second only. Laura Left has finished 25th (+2″07).
