World Cup Finals in Aspen!

Lindsey wrapped up her World Cup Downhill season with a great second-place in the last DH race of this season in Aspen/USA on March 15, 2017. It was her fourth podium finish of this season and her 130th podium in total!

Lindsey has battled a cold all week, so she was very happy with this result. “I have to put everything into perspective. I am really happy to be second, coming back from this injury … so I’m very appreciative of being on the podium,” Lindsey said.

Following her run, she slid into the barrier at the bottom of the course. “I was so tired. I just couldn’t stop fast enough. That’s one of the first times I’ve done that and I’m happy that (no injuries) happened.” She was all smiles after being helped up and described the situation as being “wrapped in there real tight, like burrito-style.”

On the second race day of the World Cup Finals the Super-G race was held – and again a sunny spring day in Aspen attracted thousands of spectators!

Lindsey did all she could to conserve some energy for this Super-G run. However, she skied through a gate and crashed! Luckily, nothing bad happened and Lindsey was able to ski to the finish.
She said “I think I just released the ski a little bit too early, and then once I realized that I didn’t have enough direction, I tried to really hammer on it. But I didn’t really have the strength or power to make it back. I almost had it, but I didn’t.”

The World Cup season 2016/2017 is now over, Lindsey summed it up: “It’s been a struggle to find consistency and confidence after my last injury but I had some great results and added to my world championship medal collection. Now it’s time to get to work for the Olympics next year! Thanks for the support everyone!”
