Full of confidence, he starts the first downhill in his career – Sport Infos – Ski

Continuation of this Crans Montana stage, still on spring snow, with a second descent on the entire route. As on Friday, the Swiss audience came in large numbers to this place, which will host the world championship in 2027.

Thousands of fans are ready to get excited for their star Lara Gut Behrami, winner the day before, winner of the last 4 races she has started.

The World Cup leader, who hates this type of very soft surface, managed to ski a slightly harder route than the day before, but it wasn't enough to continue her streak.

The Italians Marta Bassino and Federica Brignone achieved a vindictive, and significantly faster, sumptuous double, just like the Swiss on Friday.

Very impressive, very comfortable, Bassino made everyone agree to take her first downhill win, the seventh of her World Cup career.

Only her compatriot Federica Brignone managed to stay within the same second place, while Lara Gut Behrami, third at 1.11 seconds, took her 87th Top 3 as she cemented her place as the overall leader.

A huge performance for Muzaferija
