Solid! And Shiffrin edged out Gut-Behrami
Shiffrin juiced the turn where LGB had her big mistake. Shiffrin’s speed killer was lower on the course where she got a little back & opened her parachute. Without those mistakes I think one of them would’ve been on the podium. Without Stuhec maybe both of them.
3 US racers in the top 15! When is the last time that happened?

This may be somewhat off topic in the WC thread, but since there have been a few posts here about Lara Colturi, on Friday she won the Super G at the World Junior Championships at the age of 16. Was 4th in DH the day before.

She (Lara) took silver today in GS, Hanna Aronsson Elfman won. Her second JR GS Gold. I’m just waiting for her to get some good GS runs in on the WC and get into top 30 there.

anyone else having issues accessing today's (21st) race on ski and snowboard live? I see a condensed version that requires a higher subscription, but not the normal playback.

Just watched the replay on ski and snowboard live. No issues except for the shortened course & maybe a little headwind/tailwind now & then ;).
Great to see Stuhec keeping it interesting!
4 US athletes in the points!

Didn't get a chance to see the race yet. Noticed that Shiffrin's sector times were very fast in the first half and then very slow in the second. Anyone know what happened?

Interesting tidbit from Steve Porino about Gisin's struggles this season. I thought it was because of difficulty getting adjusted to her new Salomon setup but apparently she injured a toe and had to get a bigger boot, in which she has less control. This affects her speed events less because she can use into a slightly tighter boot for those.

Big mistake in the final gliding section just killed all her speed & with no chance to get it back. Seemed more like a mental lapse than anything else where she just didn’t maintain her line. Very uncharacteristic for her but I only watched it once.
This doesn’t really show the mistake but does show her disappointment …
