After the first training run in the Downhill, Maria Riesch is almost a second faster than Lindsey Vonn in Val d’ Isere.  They two friends and competitors sit in first and second, respectively.  I hear that the two plan to spend the holidays together in Maria’s home town  near Garmish Partenkirchen.  Pretty cool that two people competing for a World Cup championship can be so close.  American Julia Mancuso came in 11th today over 2 seconds back.
