This time it's not Brignone and Goggia who are celebrating

The long women's speed weekend opened on Friday morning with a Super-G in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee. For once, the Azzurre did not live up to their role as favorites.

Federica Brignone and Sofia Goggia have already caused quite a stir this year. The two Italians are particularly strong in the Super-G, but this time others are celebrating: Cornelia Hütter achieved her fifth World Cup victory in her home race. In fantastic weather, the Austrian distanced the Norwegian Kajsa Vickhoff Lie by 5 hundredths of a second. Hütter was in a class of his own, especially in the lower section.

Behind third-placed Lara Gut-Behrami, Brignone ended up in fourth place. The Italian was still in the lead at the last split, but she didn't get the lower section of the route ideally. Another Azzurra, Marta Bassino, came fifth. Goggia, on the other hand, was eliminated after an average ride in the middle section.

The three South Tyroleans Nicol Delago, Nadia Delago and Teresa Runggaldier all finished outside the points. The mood was dampened by the serious fall of the Austrian Nadine Fest. In Altenmarkt-Zauchensee there will be a downhill run on Saturday (10.45:11.00 a.m.) before another Super-G takes place on Sunday (XNUMX:XNUMX a.m.).
