Lindsey Vonn – a boot-level perspective
And surprise, surprise… it was won by Lindsey Vonn – her 12th victory of the season. She commented on her Facebook page: “Today was the last downhill of the season and it went really well, I won! The US women’s team is the best DH team in the world this season-congrats ladies!
Vonn already has her 4th overall World Cup title in the bag this season, as FamilySkiNews.com reported here. With one super-G and one GS race left, Vonn is also within reach of the 2,000-point record for one single season, achieved by Austria’s Hermann Maier in 2000. she currently has 1,908 points.
To celebrate her latest victory, and for an excellent close-up on carving technique, here’s a rare and thrilling boot-level perspective of a Vonn downhill training run in St Moritz earlier in the season. Hold on tight!…
