Slovenia’s Ilka Stuhec has a liking for heights and podiums as she wins the Val d’Isere downhill, her third downhill win in a row and her second victory of the Val d’Isere weekend.

The piste in France was hard, fast and bumpy but Stuhec kept things under control to hold on to a win.
She was joined on the podium by Austria’s Cornelia Huetter.
That's a pumped #worldcupvaldisere podium.

Huetter has now ten World Cup podiums to her name and Val d’Isere is her first of the season.
Swiss skier Lara Gut made a hash of things and made her frustration plain with a
piercing scream. Gut is now fourth in the downhill standings.
