“This definitely gives me a big confidence boost going over to Europe. Whenever you win, period, let alone by over a second, it definitely gives you that little bit extra boost of confidence. I’m feeling great, and I know my super G is good, my downhill is pretty good, so I feel like I’m in a good place for the next couple races.” – Lindsey Vonn, yesterday

“It was a big deal. I feel like there were some people that doubted whether I could win today, and especially because Lara (Gut) had won the last couple races here in super G. And also my technician made some bets with people, so I felt a little bit like I had to come through. It was my physio Lindsay’s last day with me traveling on the road, so I kind of wanted to end with a bang. I had a pretty good run. I’m pretty happy with it.”
I feel like (my run) was pretty good. I definitely got a little but late on the bottom coming around Claire’s Corner, got pushed a little bit, but I kept the speed going. So I would say it was a pretty decent run, but looking back you can always say you could do better.” – Lindsey Vonn, yesterday
