Lindsey Vonn crashes in Flachau: Overall title slipping away

Posted By: The Ski Channel on January 12, 2011 9:09 am

Lindsey Vonn failed to complete the first leg of a slalom for the 4th time this season.  Missing out on valuable points for the overall title, the three time World Cup champion trails her pal and main rival, Maria Riesch of Germany, by 196 points.  Lindsey stands in first place in the downhill but still has some work to do to take that title as Maria is hot on her heals only 103 points back with 5 downhills remaining.

None of the American women placed in the race…
