Stiegler 8th, Four U.S. in Aspen SL Top 30

 
 

ASPEN, Colo. (Dec. 9) - Resi Stiegler (Jackson Hole, WY) finished eighth Sunday in a World Cup slalom, leading four Americans into the top 30 as the Audi Aspen Winternational concluded.WCSN.com webcast the second run live and will have a second webcast tonight at 9 ET - of Saturday's downhill.

Stiegler, ninth in the first run, had a two-run time of 1:37.07 with Julia Mancuso (Olympic Valley, CA) 19th in 1:38.41. After hiking gates, Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) was 27th and Kaylin Richardson (Edina, MN) 28th.



Aspen was hit by about three feet of snow from Thursday night into Saturday morning, forcing a one-day postponement of Friday's downhill, the first women's DH in Aspen since 1988. Sunday, the slalom - held in sunshine and 30-degree weather - completed the weekend.



"When you get as much snow as Aspen got this week, it's really difficult to have a clean run. They did an awesome job preparing the course, and the second run was better than the first. It still got a little chunky on us, but it good to be able to race," said Stiegler, who produced her third top-10 of the season.

 




The two courses "were pretty straight forward. They were good courses to all out on, and if you weren't charging on the bottom you could lose a lot of time," she said.



The next World Cup races for the women are a downhill and super G next weekend in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
