Brilliant Marta Bassino dominates in second Giant Slalom of the season
It was a brilliant day's race on Saturday as Italy's Marta Bassino doubled up with her second Giant Slalom victory of the season at Courchevel. Meanwhile at Val d'Isere it was Switzerland's Mauro Caviezel who took the win in the Super-G.
Marta Bassino of Italy takes 1st place during the Audi FIS Alpine Ski World Cup Women's Giant Slalom on December 12, 2020 in Courchevel, France.
Overall leader Petra Vlhova won the first run, but she couldn’t live with the pace of the two women in front of her and had to settle for third.
America’s Mikaela Shiffrin continues to look for her first win since her return to racing. Shiffrin finished fourth in the end and showed some signs of rustiness down her second run, at least compared to her usual high standards.
Earlier in the men’s tour it was a great day for defending champion Mauro Caviezel in the first Super-G race of the season at Val d’Isere.
