Ramona Siebenhofer was third (+0.44 seconds) on the podium for the first time this season. “I noticed that it was a good ride because it was better than in the training sessions,” said Siebenhofer. Mirjam Puchner, who was third in the downhill twice this season, had to settle for 17th place this time. Christine Scheyer was tenth, Ariane Rädler with start number 29 in eleventh provided her best World Cup result in downhill. The big favorite Sofia Goggia fell.
