In the absence of Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhova, the Swiss also won the giant slalom at Kronplatz on Tuesday. New Zealand’s Alice Robinson and Sweden’s Sara Hector were in second place, 1.09 seconds behind. The Austrians managed to improve after the fiasco in Jasna, where no ÖSV runner scored points. Julia Scheib came ninth.

With her best running time in the final, the Styrian worked her way up from 25th place, place by place. “I don’t know at the moment why I can’t push myself to the limit in the first one,” said Scheib. Ricarda Haaser took 13th place, Elisabeth Kappaurer was 17th, Stephanie Brunner 19th. As has often been the case, Katharina Liensberger was unable to cope with the steep terrain that sloped away to one side. The Vorarlberg native didn’t get past 25th place.
Elisa Mörzinger fell in the decision. Franziska Gritsch, Katharina Troupe and Katharina Huber missed qualifying for the second round.
Shiffrin, Vlhova and Grenier were missing
For Gut-Behrami it was the 42nd World Cup victory and the fifth this winter. Two days ago in Cortina d’Ampezzo she won a Super-G. In addition to the World Cup leader Shiffrin from the USA and the Slovakian Vlhova, the Canadian Valerie Grenier also did not start due to injury.

In the overall World Cup, the Swiss is only 95 points behind Shiffrin, who, according to US Alpine director Patrick Riml, could only return to Soldeu in a week and a half at the earliest. The Women’s World Cup is taking an involuntary break this weekend as the speed races in Garmisch-Partenkirchen were canceled due to safety concerns.
