Default Re: Alpine Skiing thread

If you like both tennis and Alpine skiing, these two weeks are great weeks for you. This week, there are the classic Lauberhorn races in Wengen, next week there are even more prestigious Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbühel. Kitzbühel downhill is more challenging but I think Wengen downhill looks more spectacular. Lasting about two and a half minutes, it's the longest downhill in World Cup and also the fastest, Carlo Janka reached in today's combined race the speed World Record, 158.8 km/h. And skiers going under a railway bridge must be one of my earliest memories from Alpine skiing.

Beat Feuz's victory run from last year, enjoy:



And today there was already an Alpine combined race in Wengen, won by France's Alexis Pinturault.

Not just any woman, the favourite...the big poster name.

Hopefully she'll get better soon. No hope for the rest of these championships, though.

That's what happens when you push a race through at all cost despite changing and unkind conditions. People get hurt and now Vonn will be out for god knows how long, suspected torn ligaments and a broken leg.

Anyway Tina Maze continued her dominance this season and showed again why she's by far the best skier this year. One medal down, every chance of getting four more.

Yes, Maze is "en route" for the best season by a female alpine skier ever. The points record in the World Cup is under serious threat, and she starts off the WC with a win is what is certainly no more than her 3rd best dicipline. Amazing!

Just amazing what a miracle our country has produced.

Yep, as if they couldn't have postponed the race to another day, TV schedules were messed up anyway. I assume the soft snow caused Vonn's fall. Besides, they had to stop the race after 36 starters, still that was enough to get official results.

Hopefully Lindsey recovers fully to be able to continue her career.

Tina's really been fantastic this season. If somebody has to dominate, it's nice it isn't always Vonn or Höfl-Riesch. Hopefully she can retain her form to the next winter to take the missing Olympic Gold.

I've opened a biathlon thread, so this one can be free to discuss alpine skiing

Will Aksel Lund Svindal win the downhill? He is the favourite, but has not been very impressive in the practice runs.

I believe Svindal is in a good form, bronze from super-G is a proof of that. Of course, super-G has been stronger for him than downhill but when Ligety wins a super-G race, you know it's a bit strange race.

Svindal is definitely the favourite and has a very good chance to a podium finish. But I think it's more likely he won't win, there are many tough competitiors. Another skier I have a good feeling about is Hannes Reichelt. He was 3rd in slame slope last year, has one victory and two 3ed place from last three downhill races, and was fastest in the 1st training. He's my 2nd biggest winner favourite. Other skiers that are favourites in my opinion are Innerhofer, Paris, Guay, and maybe Kröll.
