Lindsey is back in the FIS Word Cup!
Today Lindsey gave her comeback in her "living room" in Lake Louise/CAN, she finished 40th in a time of 1:59:22. Germany's Maria Höfl-Riesch won this downhill race in 1:56:03, ahead of Marianne Kaufmann-Abderhalden from Switzerland and Italian Elena Fanchini.
It was Lindsey's first competitive ski run since her tremendous knee injury at the World Championships in Schladming in February 2013 - and just two weeks after re-injuring her surgically repaired right knee at a training run in Vail. The start of the race had been delayed by hazy clouds and extremely cold temperatures. (around minus 36°C). Lindsey got in the race with bib 18, she started really confident but skied conservatively by her standards. However, no matter that her time was not among the top 25, Lindsey was just thrilled to be back in the World Cup.
It was a landmark moment for Lindsey and it was a very positive stride for Lindsey in preparation for further races and Sochi 2014.
Tomorrow (Saturday) Lindsey will take part at the second downhill race in Lake Louise, kick-off is at 12:30 local time.
