Yeah it was already confirmed, season is definitely over :/
It's really a shock for the Austrian team since she's the best female in the team by far.

Guess it will be Vonn's year. No Maze, no Fenninger. She basically doesn't have any real rivals in Downhill or Super-G.

She's doing a 1-year-break. I heard that she wants to focus on her studies.

I don't really like Ted, but he did a good job.

Huge intervals btw, both Ladies and Men.
The 10th is already more than 3 seconds behind 1st place.

Yeahh next one is Ladies Slalom on November 14, which Shiffrin will win definitely.. can't come up with any competitor. Or she has a bad start again like last year where she was somewhere behind the Top 10 in the first two races but after that she found her good form again.

But from December on its regularly, so every weekend. :)

Resi Stiegler is awesome I don't know anyone who doesn't like her haha. I'm so sad that Mancuso isn't as good as she was a few years ago, I really like her. I also like Laurenne Ross.

They all are skiing this season so we will see how they'll go. Really hope that Resi can manage few top 30 finishers in slalom.

Yep he continues. I really like him, it's really impressive how good he is with that age. His last 2 seasons were really strong.

Two olympic medals (nearly winning gold) at his age is really an achievement and may trigger some further comebacks which I hope for.
