There is not a moment of respite for the strongest skiers in the world, ready to put on their poles for the last World Cup races. The intercontinental circuit restarts over the weekend with the women involved in the downhill in Crans Montana and the men expected from a double slalom on the German snows of Garmisch-Partenkirchen.
If in the male the games for the crystal globe seem now made, a battle tends to emerge until the last door between Mikaela Shiffrin and Petra Vlhova, bitter rivals separated by just 17 points in the standings. The American came out with broken bones from the Beijing trip, while the Slovakian returned home early due to ankle problems.
At home Italy Sofia Goggia aims to put on the bulletin board the second consecutive specialty cup and despite the creaking knee she has all the credentials to keep Corinne Suter at bay. Alex Vinatzer and his teammates, on the other hand, want to put an end to the Olympic disappointment and Kandahar offers them a great chance for redemption.
