Lindsey placed 11th in today’s Downhill in Lake Louise!

Lindsey skied to an impressing 11th place in today’s FIS World Cup Downhill in Lake Louise. She finished the race in a time of 1:56:35, 1.26 seconds behind the winner Maria Hoefl-Riesch from Germany, Liechtenstein’s Tina Weirather finished second, and Austrian Anna Fenninger came in third.

It’s a superb result considering that it was her second race after her knee surgery in February 2013 and her re-injury after a fall during practice in Vail/Colorado. She got in the race with bib 18, attacked from beginning on and briefly had the green light for the fastest split, beating Tina Weirather from Liechtenstein at that point. Lindsey gave up time on the bottom section of the course but was still risking a lot – and it paid off.
Lindsey made major strides in the less than 24 hours between her first two races. Right after the race Lindsey said she felt “much more like myself” in this second comeback race and she is very happy with her performance.
The ladies’ FIS World Cup continues in Lake Louise tomorrow – the Super G starts at 11 A.M. local time.
