Alpine skiing: in Courchevel, Michaela Schiffrin goes looking for points

After Italy’s Sofia Giugia rally at Val d’Isere this weekend, all eyes are on Courchevel, where American rival Michaela Schiffrin and many others are expected to take part in two giant races on Tuesday and Wednesday. It was also announced among the favorites for the Emile-Allais circuit: Italy’s Federica Brignone and Marta Bassino, France’s Tessa Worley or Slovakia’s Petra Vlhova.

So, two rounds have passed, since the canceled women’s giant Courchevel at the end of November took place in Killington (USA) due to bad weather. A godsend for the ultra-high-end resort of Savoyard which, together with Méribel, will also host the Alpine Ski World Cup Finals from 14-20 March, one year before the World Championships finals in 2023.

Shiffrin must collect points

Shiffrin, who this weekend pleased Jogia at the top of the World Cup general classification (a small 75-point lead at this point) thanks to his duo on the slopes and a super G at Val d’Isere, will be at the heart of a rebuild. The triple winner of the big crystal ball game (from 2017 to 2019) had just hooked up three top-tier Super Gs (sixth at Lake Louise, and third twice at St. Moritz in mid-December) in eight days.
