(Mont-Tremblant) Another chapter in the most serious rivalry in modern alpine skiing is about to be written in Mont-Tremblant.
Mikaela Shiffrin was clearly the best skier in the first round on Sunday, during the presentation of the second giant of the weekend.
But that was before Petra Vlhova took off. The Slovakian was also flawless. Although from a distance she appeared a little slower than her rival, she crossed the finish line 0.05 seconds faster than her competitor.
Valérie Grenier, for her part, was unable to bounce back after her poor performance the day before. The Canadian had the 11th provisional time, 1.53 seconds behind Vlhova.
Among the other Canadians, Cassidy Gray was the best of the group. The British Columbia athlete took provisional 23rd place.
Even though they crossed the finish line, Justine Clément and Justine Lamontagne were unable to qualify for the second round.
Then Sarah Bennett in the middle of the race and Britt Richardson at the very end of the race stumbled, ending their day prematurely.
