Levi - WC SL premiere for women today

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Pritty awsome race today. Levi Black is known for best race track conditions of all races on the WC tour. Surface remains almost unaltered through out the race. In other words, Levi is the place to brake into the top 30 sporting any bib number. Strong winds for the first out on the track settled the odds even further. Highest bib number to make it into the top 30 was #71 Taina Barioz finishing 22nd. And, Christina Ager #53, bearly 18, first WC ever, almost made the podium finishing 4th. All in all as many as 12 racers starting out of the top 30 finished today to take valuable WC points. Only 8 racers with starting numbers under 15 made it to the finish in the second run. Nina Loeseth that was the second out on the second run wasnt far from the podium finishing 7th. Was smiling at the camera at the finish for almost the entire second run. And, her little sister Mona was among the quickest half way down in the first run but crashed. Unreal race for sure.

Totally agree. It was unreal to see Loseth stay in the first position for so long. Hoped that Mitch could hang in for a podium finish for Canada, but a great showing none the less, and also for Eli Terwiel to. Congrats to Mikaela for a another stellar race. I hope that his is an indication of the rest of the season.

When someone wins by a good margin I look to see how far down that margin would go from second place.   In this race, the gap between first and second was as big as the gap between second and 10th.  She's young, but she is the reigning World and World Cup champion, and skied like it today.

Too bad about Poutiainen who was also looking strong.
