Success of the Ticino in the second super-G. then there is a lot of Italy. Speed in Cortina next week with a super-G and two descents
The Italy of women always goes fast. After the success in yesterday’s race, Federica Brignone is back on the podium: second in the super-G of St. Anton, just 15 cents from Lara Gut. And then there are two other Italians: Marta Bassino (at 19/100) and Elena Curtoni, fourth at 52/100.
Complete race, unlike yesterday when the snowfall had forced me to start from the reserve gate, but the difference was the final stretch in which once again Brignone was the fastest, not enough to make up the gap from Gut . “I’m happy with how I’m skiing – commented Brignone -, I wasn’t able to trust myself so much. Now I would like to do well in the Italian stages”. The same for Marta Bassino, who was the fastest at the top. Like yesterday, Elena Curtoni paid for a mistake in the final and is fourth: it is not enough for her to keep the red bib of specialty leader, which passes to her teammate Brignone. “Another mistake below – explained Elena Curtoni -, but I know they are always there. I’m not very satisfied with this weekend, skiing is returning to the same way it was in December and I can’t wait to go to Cortina”. In addition to the 6 victories achieved this season by Goggia (3), Curtoni, Bassino and Brignone, the Azzurri have climbed another 9 times on the podium. In the 30 there are also Roberta Melesi (21st at 2″41), Karoline Pichler (21st at 2″43) and Laura Pirovano (23rd at 2″47). Outside Nicol and Nadia Delago.
It is the 36th success in the World Cup for Lara Gut, the 18th in super-G for Gut (only Vonn, with 27, has won more). in the World Cup). The first two in the general classification weren’t there – Shiffrin (1195) and Vlhova (796) – Gut (636) is now third.
Next week the Women’s World Cup returns to Italy: Cortina also recovers the downhill canceled yesterday, so the weekend gets longer: two downhills and a super-G. Then Tuesday 24 and Wednesday 25 two giants at Plan de Corones..
