Alpine skiing, Sofia Goggia’s background in Lenzerheide. Only one top 10 in the super-G of 2016 for the Bergamo

Sport

The Women’s Alpine Ski World Cup is almost over. Over the weekend the circus takes to the track in Lenzerheide (Switzerland) for a giant preceded by a super-G, after which only the Aare stage will be missing before the finals scheduled in Courchevel-Meribel.

Sofia Goggia is back from the splendid third place downhill in Crans Montana, a result that allowed her to mortgage the specialty cup between the wide doors. Knee permitting, the Bergamo rider has the numbers to do well even on the “Silvano Beltrametti”, despite the fact that the giant has been stingy with satisfactions this year.

Considering that from 2016 to this part Lenzerheide has hosted only two giant events and one of super-G , the best placement collected by Goggia is an eighth position in the super-G six years ago, won by the absentee of the weekend Cornelia Huetter.

There are no other top 10 on the Swiss side, a track not very similar to the blue colors for several seasons. The last triumph in the locality responds to the name of Isolde Koster, on the highest step in 2001, then the cosmic nothing except for the second place of Marta Bassino in combined (2018). Reversing the trend must be the imperative of the tricolor contingent, it being understood that little can be asked of Sofia Goggia given the moment of current form.
