His 2nd run wasn't completely clean but with the huge lead he had after the first round, he still beat Hirscher by 2.04 sec to take his second win in the prestigious Alta Badia giant slalom.
And in women's side, Tina Maze continued her amazing run by winning a giant slalom in Courchevel. She has won all four World Cup giant slaloms this year.
2.40 ahead after one run is the sickest I've seen in a long time. What is happening here? Svindal wins with over a second and then Ligety with more than two. I'm not used to these kind of winning margins. Associate them more with the 70s.
