Federica Brignone should take a stop

Riders in this news :  Federica BRIGNONE

 

Federica Brignone has decided to skip the Giant Slalom in Courchevel scheduled next Sunday. The 22 years Italian racer should take a break to have a surgery on her right ankle.

She has a cyst witch avoids her to skiing. It’s a logical decision for the 2011 silver medallist in Ginat Slalom

I came to a point where I couldn’t keep going. The pain became intolerable and I am struggling to even walk properly. I tried to keep going, but skiing became a pain and stopped being fun. I came to this decision in agreement with all my doctors, and at this point I don’t want to rush things. I am young and solely focused on healing properly and coming back to having fun on my skis. I am sure I will be back stronger then before.”, said Federica Brignone in a press release.

Worley, let's go!

Riders in this news :  Tessa WORLEY

After a fall in Sölden and a 6th place in Aspen, Tessa Worley has really begun her season this weekend in St Moritz. On a slope she likes after her victory in 2010, she finishes third and signs her ninth career podium. With 0.55 seconds behind the winner, Tessa Worley had her first podium finish since last season. Confident after her 7th place in Super G on Saturday, her best career result in this discipline, Tessa was satisfied after her race: "I knew, I could be on the podium this season and now it already worked out. In the second run, I really wanted to go for it. It was a bit tougher, the snow was hard and bumpy. But it was great, so here I am on the podium, hopefully more are to come during the winter!"

Luitz, the revelation

Riders in this news :  Stefan LUITZ

Born in 1992, Stefan Luitz has signed the first podium of his young career in Val d’Isère. 25th of the first run, he moved to the second place of the Giant Slalom. The Rossi’s skier has realized a perfect second run (best time of the run) and stood on the podium finish between the winner Marcel Hirscher and the leader of the GS World Cup, Ted Ligety! His best career place was a 13th rank in Beaver Creek last week.

Another best day for Cook!

Riders in this news :  Stacey COOK

 

Stacey Cook gets her second podium in two days in Lake Louise. The American is still behind her amazing teammate Lindsey Vonn, who did a huge mistake but crossed the finish line first!  

The Rossi’s girl Stacey Cook was very happy after this second race: “I've been waiting for that day for so long and it was kind of unbelievable when it happened, so special. Today I just really had a lot less pressure, I accomplished a major goal yesterday and just skied for myself today and just skied for myself today and really and really charged. I still had some speed in me from yesterday and I found little bit more speed in the course today, made a few little mistakes as well, but two podiums in a row; I never thought that was within my capability.

Congratulations too to Marie Marchand-Arvier, just off the podium by 0.20 seconds.
