Gagnon in confidence
Heroe(s) in this news Marie-Michele GAGNON
After her 3rd place in Crans-Montana Slalom, Marie-Michele Gagnon has shown in Soldeu that the Lange racer has found again the confidence. She signs her second career World Cup win in Alpine Combined after her victory in 2014 in Zauchensee.
“I wasn’t expecting a win. I was surprised. I was hoping for a podium. That’s always a good result, and I knew that I was skiing strong. My super-G was pretty good yesterday. I started 52 and came 23rd. For me, I was pretty happy with that. And today, I was able to put down a pretty solid run in the super G and also, my confidence is good with slalom. After two weekends ago, I had my first podium in like four years in slalom, so it’s really good. Just having that confidence moving into alpine combined where both of the races were kind of like perfect snow, I would say. It was just really a good day, I guess."
In the alpine combined standings, Marie-Michel Gagnon, Lara Gut and Lindsey Vonn are tied for first place with 100 points. Holdener is fourth with 98 points. With one more alpine combined in St Moritz for the finals, the battle for the crystal globe will be amazing!
Hat-trick for Lange in Soldeu
Heroe(s) in this news Federica BRIGNONE
It was a tough race in Soldeu! Despite the bad weather conditions, Federica Brignone has signed her first Super G World Cup victory in Soldeu! It’s her 5th podium this season, the 12th of her career. Lange racers Laurenne Ross (2nd) and Tamara Tippler (3rd) complete the podium.
"It’s incredible today, I just can’t believe it, and it’s crazy. I know this was a tough race. It was not the best conditions for the best racers, the top 7, but then I took advantage of my luck and I just ski my best and tried to push. I knew it was just one minute of super G, so I tried to push every single turn. Actually, when I went down it was really good. You must not to go outside the race line because the snow was a little bit soft. In the last part, if you were going a little bit wide, you were kind of slowed down. A part from the top section, it was so good for me because it was just steep and technical.
Two podiums in two races for Nadia Fanchini!
Heroe(s) in this news Nadia FANCHINI
After a third place on Friday in La Thuile, Nadia Fanchini has won her second career World Cup in Downhill on Saturday. It is the 11th podium in World Cup for the Schladming 2013 Silver medallist.
“I had my last victory at Lake Louise in 2008. Yesterday, I got third place. I never expected it, and I never believed I could race so wonderfully as I raced today. And in particular with Lindsey Vonn, who wanted to come back so hard. I never believed I would be on the podium. To tell you the truth, even a podium would have been enough today. Never thought I could win. Technical courses for sure suit me more, that's the reason why I raced today. There are a lot of emotions. I am so happy about this result.”
Great performance also from the Lange Team in Super G with Fabienne Suter 4th, Romane Miradoli 5th and Federica Brignone 6th!
