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.
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.
