Lindsey wins sixth straight World Cup Downhill title!

This week the Ski World Cup Finals take place in Lenzerheide but due to heavy fog the (men’s) and women’s downhill races today had to be cancelled. That means now – Lindsey (in absence) clinched her sixth consecutive women’s World Cup downhill title as she was leading the current downhill standings, 1 point ahead of Tina Maze (Slovenia)! And Lindsey expressed her happiness via twitter: “Omg I won the World Cup Downhill title!!!!! 6 in a row with a bum knee! Everything in life comes back around.”

This season was quite tough for Lindsey, it ended yet too early after her horrible accident at the World Championships in Schladming/Austria and consequently she missed the last two events. But still, when Lindsey was racing the downhill courses in North America and Europe this winter, she was able to show a great performance and her strength in this discipline: She won 3 races (2 in Lake Louise/Canada, 1 in Cortina d’Ampezzo/Italy) and together with her 6th place at the downhill in St. Anton, she reached a total of 340 points in the downhill standings – which lead Lindsey to her sixth World Cup Downhill title!
