Lindsey wins GS in Maribor!

After the first run Lindsey was third but produced the fastest second heat to win the GS in Maribor/Slovenia in a total of 2:22:20! She was 0.08 seconds ahead of second ranked Slovenian Tina Maze and Austrian Anna Fenninger was third, 0.57 seconds behind Lindsey.

Despite a slight mistake in the upper part of the second run, Lindsey was able to correct it immediately and perfectly well. And just when it looks like Lindsey is fast, she kicks in the turbo speed! So she crushed once more the rest of the field to claim her first GS win this season – and her 59th World Cup victory in total!
Lindsey said happily after her victory “I don’t know what to say. I skied well the first run, but I didn’t ski the bottom very well and in the second run I just said ‘ok, it’s all or nothing, I have to go for it.’ I definitely made some mistakes but to have my first win in GS since last year is perfect. When I made that mistake, I thought I wasn’t going to finish. I was like ‘no, not again’ because three years ago I was in second place and I crashed three gates from the finish and I didn’t want to have that happen again.” (source:
The World Cup continues tomorrow with a slalom in Maribor/Slovenia.
