The race in Sölden next week will attract the world’s best athletes. For the women’s Giant Slalom we expect to see Mikaela Shiffrin to defend last year’s title. Second-placed Lara Gut-Behrami from Switzerland, whose run was a mere 0.14 seconds behind Mikaela’s winning run in 2:07:22 minutes, will surely put her best foot forward to challenge the incumbent. Lara will not be the only one hoping to best America’s Shiffrin in the season opener. The race is usually on every world cup skier’s agenda. It should be a spectacular start to the 22/23 season.
