Tina Maze is looking more and more unbeatable in giant slalom this season — and her lead over Lindsey Vonn in the World Cup standings is getting bigger and bigger.
Maze won her fourth straight GS race on Sunday to extend her overall World Cup lead — and more importantly create a bigger gap to Vonn, the defending champion who had another disappointing day and failed to finish.
Maze had a comfortable lead of 0.63 seconds over Frenchwoman Tessa Worley after her first run, and the 29-year-old Slovenian then held off Austria’s Kathrin Zettel in the second to win by 0.22. Worley was third, 0.40 back. Austria’s Anna Fenninger finished fourth but was 1:16 behind Maze.
“This year I’m actually amazed by myself, how good I can do the races,” Maze said. “For this I have to thank my team, that’s working the whole summer and already for four now with me. They’re getting me ready to be able to follow all the races that are coming.”
