Tina Maze Narrowly Missed the Podium in GS in Aspen


The first run saw Austria's Eva-Maria Brem showcase all her talent to take the lead, leaving the rest of the pack more than one second off the pace. Italy's Federica Brignone and Austria's Kathrin Zettel were both respectively 1.14 and 1.33 seconds behind in second and third place. Tina Maze was fourth 1.65 sesonds behind.

Eva-Maria Brem confessed she would give it all out in the second run as if she had finished 10th after the first run and things went according to the plan in the second run. The 26-year-old perfectly dealt with the pressure of being the last to go and raced to her first World Cup victory, clocking a combined time of 2:05.97. In second and third place, Kathrin Zettel and Federica Brignone swapped their first run positions, respectively 0.59 and 1.36 seconds slower than the winner of the day.

Tina Maze kept her 4th position in second run and proved that 22nd place in Soelden is already forgotten. 

The "hero" of the second run was another Slovenian in the final run Ana Drev who jumped from 28th place to 14th with the best time of the second run.
