Cornelia Hütter was fourth, 1.16 seconds behind, and confirmed her strong impression from the day before, when she had shown in seventh place. Christine Scheyer lined up in fifth place with an equally high starting number. Puchner, third on Friday, was 1.52 seconds back and finished eighth. The previous day’s fourth Ramona Siebenhofer ended up in eleventh place ahead of Tamara Tippler.
For Goggia it was the 13th victory in the World Cup and the tenth in the downhill. The day before she drove the competition to the ground with a lead of 1.47 seconds, this time too she left no doubts about her victory. “The weather was more difficult today, so I drove more calmly. It was a solid safety run, ”said Goggia on ORF. At the end of the program in Lake Louise there will be a Super-G on Sunday (6.30 p.m., live on ORF1).
Goggia can’t be beat again
The Italian celebrates the next victory in Lake Louise.
Last year, after finishing second in Val d’Isere, Goggia had won four times in a row (Val d’Isere, St. Anton and Crans Montana / 2) before she seriously injured her knee at the end of January and also her home because of the early end of the season – Missed the World Cup in Cortina. Nevertheless, the second crystal ball for the Downhill World Cup could no longer be taken from her. Since Saturday, the 29-year-old has been a member of the circle of runners who have won ten World Cup runs. Apart from Goggia, only Lara Gut-Behrami (11) is still active.
Hütter is happy about the increase
From an Austrian point of view, Hütter had a lot of reason to be happy. “The goal was for me to improve again. The gap today is definitely better and the placement is good too. So I’m really happy about fourth place, ”said Hütter on ORF. “It was always my goal when I race again, then with 100 percent at the start. I think I managed that well. The last three years have been negative and now we hope it will be positive. “
Since the 2019 finale in Soldeu, the Styrian has almost consistently missed starts due to several injuries in the past two and a half years. In the pre-winter season, she only drove two World Cup races in Italy because of her injury status. Scheyer was also happy at the finish line: “That means a lot to me. While driving, I noticed that it was good. I trusted what I can. What came out is madness. “
Meanwhile, Siebenhofer was unable to continue Friday’s drive. “I didn’t get in so well upstairs today, the first part wasn’t that good. I then have to watch it in the video. The lower part was I think very good. Now let’s see where we’re headed. But the start of the season was a lot better than last year, ”explained the Styrian.
Schmidhofer clearly behind
In the second race after her comeback, Nicole Schmidhofer (43rd) was clearly 4.24 seconds behind in worse weather conditions than the day before. Mikaela Shiffrin (38th), who crossed the finish line 3.44 seconds late, had a similar experience.
