Tessa Worley had perfect timing to win her first World Cup race of the season Saturday in the final giant slalom before the Pyeongchang Olympics.
The world champion from France survived a tricky passage through the steep and twisting first three gates of her second run to hold off Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany by 0.07 seconds.
”This victory was built on the first run Cheap Chicago Bears Hoodie ,” Worley said. ”In the second one there were some errors, but really happy to be able to attack until the end.”
Unheralded 19-year-old Meta Hrovat placed third, 1.45 behind Worley. Hrovat gave the Slovenia team a first-time podium finisher for the second straight day.
Mikaela Shiffrin, the World Cup overall leader Youth Bradley Chubb Jersey , placed seventh, almost two seconds back. The American star’s winless streak is five races after a five-race winning streak to start the year.
