Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 9, 2011 9:27 am

Lindsey Vonn took second place today at the Women’s Super G in Zauchensee, AUT. Lindsey Vonn made a couple of mistakes and Swiss teen Lara Gut capitalized, putting aside off-the-slopes struggles to win Sunday’s World Cup super-G race for her second career victory.

“I am happy with second,” LIndsey said. “I made a couple of mistakes today and almost fell on the bottom. I just caught some soft snow and almost went on my hip. Thankfully I finished the race.” 

Julia Mancuso placed 16th and Laurenne Ross was 23rd for the U.S.

Maria Riesch was 6th keeping valuable points in the chase for the overall title although she leads by less than 100 points now.  923 to 827 over our gal, LV.
