Petra cemented her position at the head of the slalom tree, and usurped Lara Gut-Behrami at the top of the overall standings, with victory in Are.
Backing up her win on Sunday on home snow in the giant slalom, Vlhova produced a run of 1:45.16 to edge out Katharina Liensberger and Mikaela Shiffrin.
The victory was the 20th World Cup success of Vlhova’s career, and she will have high hopes of repeating the feat and doing the double on Saturday.
