Sofia Goggia Takes Victory in Val d'Isère's Downhill
The challenge has officially begun and with only two downhill races behind us, we already have two-speed Queens who have scored the same World Cup points in two days, 180 each and they are wearing the same red bib.
The second downhill race in Val D'Isere was won by Olympic champion Sofia Goggia (ITA), who performed a precise, correct race without any sensational risks, but it was absolutely sufficient to take her to victory. Goggia returns to the top step of the podium after Crans Montana Super-G in 2019. A few weeks later, she had to end her season short after fracturing her left arm in a crash.
Corinne Suter (SUI) had to settle for second place this time, 0,24 behind the Italian champion. Both racers skied well without making any mistakes on a slope that was less risky than yesterday's as the part of the slope that created problems for the athletes was fixed.
American Breezy Johnson is absolutely on fire. Despite a small mistake in the final part that made her lose precious speed to win the race, the two podiums of these two days show how the American is in fantastic shape and can become a threat to Sofia Goggia and Corinne Suter.
