A day after Marta Bassino won her first World Cup Downhill race, Stephanie Venier earned today in Crans Montana her maiden World Cup win in the Super-G, seven years after her first podium in the discipline in Garmisch-Partenkirchen. He beated the Italian duo of Federica Brignone (+0.04) and Marta Bassino (+0.15). It's the third victory in the Alpine Ski World Cup for Venier and her 11th podium. Venier became the 19th Austrian to win a Super-G race in the World Cup. The Tirolean is also the first Austrian to win a Super-G event in Crans Montana. The four previous victories for the Austrian team in Crans Montana came in the Downhill (3) and the Giant Slalom.

"The run was tricky to ski, you had to let the skis run, but at the same time drive a few passages with your head. It was close in the end, but luckily it worked out. Now I’m super happy. I just enjoy skiing again. I think you can see that in the results", Venier said.



After yesterday's 1-2 podium in the second Downhill held in Crans Montana, on a course set by her trainer, the Italian team achieved another great result in the Super-G with a 2-3 podium. It´s the 65th podium in the World Cup for Federica Brignone and the 30th for Marta Bassino.

"Four-hundredths are burning a little bit but it has been an amazing weekend for me in Crans Montana. I really like the slope: it's steep, it's technical and it's amazing", Brignone said.

"I think I made a mistake before the flat, but anyway, I tried to stay focused on myself and tried to feel the speed. In general, the feeling was a little bit strange because the snow was really soft, especially in the last part", Bassino said.


After today's Super-G in Crans Montana, and with four more Super-G races on the calendar, the fight for the discipline Crystal Globe is getting super close with Lara Gut-Behrami leading the standings with 360 points, Cornelia Hütter is second with 355, Federica Brignone is third with 326, and Stephanie Venier fourth with 266.


Thanks to the 40 points earned today by Lara Gut-Behrami, the Swiss skier from Ticino extended the lead in the Overall standings to 205 points over Mikaela Shiffrin. Federica Brignone is third 81 points behind the US skier.
