World Cup Recap: Week Two at Beaver Creek and Lake Louise

Lara Gut grabs another victory and Ted Ligety returns to the podium at Beaver Creek

German speed queen Maria Hoefl-Riesch rivaled Lindsey Vonn’s title in the downhill at Lake Louise on Friday and Saturday, while Aksel Lund Svindal soared to his first win in the men’s downhill at Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey, while Ted Ligety became the first man in World Cup history to win four or more giant slalom races at two separate venues with his first place finish Sunday.

Svindal has stood on the podium before at Beaver Creek. Of his 52 podium finishes 11 have now come at this venue, with two second place finishes in the downhill and super-G in 2012. But this year he finally conquered his prey again at Friday’s downhill for the first time since he won back-to-back races in 2008.

This year’s Audi FIS Alpine World Cup speed events began with the ladies downhill on Beaver Creek’s debut Raptor course on Friday.

Swiss sensation, Lara Gut, was the first racer to win the Raptor with a winning time of 1:41.26 in the downhill, proving she can deliver on race day after having two of the three fastest training runs earlier in the week.
