Wendy Holdener finished 2nd in the Kranjska Gora slalom. In the lead after the first heat, the skier from Unteriberg was finally overtaken by Petra Vlhova. Two other Swiss scored points in Slovenia. Elena Stoffel was ranked 21st and Nicole Good 23rd.
Obviously happy, but inevitably frustrated deep down. Because if the Schwyzoise signed its 29th podium in the slalom, it was very close to its first victory in the discipline for its 100th start on the short turn.
The story would have been magnificent and would have finally consecrated the one that seems to revolve around this success without ever having the right to it. But despite an excellent quality second round, something went wrong in the back of the track to get past Petra Vlhova. With just a 0”08 bonus at the end of the opening streak, Wendy Holdener had no margin.
Petra Vlhova widens the gap
Mikaela Shiffrin, third on the first track, was crushing the race when the fault hit. This zero point of the American allows Vlhova to come back on her heels in the World Championship general and fly in slalom since she has 580 points out of 600 possible.

“I’m sorry for Wendy”
“I was a bit nervous this morning about the track that I did not find perfect, not worthy of a World Cup. Even though there was a good fight, I had two good races. As I often say, it is not easy to chain victories. In the second race, I was perfect. I feel sorry for Wendy who is always 2nd“said Petra Vlhova.
