Vonn poised to sweep Lake Louise again

By David O. Williams
Real AspenDecember 1, 2012
If Vail’s Lindsey Vonn completes a sweep of this weekend’s races at Lake Louise, Alberta – a distinct possibility after she dominated the field by nearly two seconds in Friday’s downhill – she will have answered all of her doubters from a shaky early-season start.

After sparking heated debate by seeking permission to race against men at Lake Louise instead of against women at Aspen – a concept rejected by the International Ski Federation (FIS) -- Vonn wasn’t able to train much in November because of a mysterious and debilitating stomach ailment that landed her in the Vail Valley Medical Center for a couple nights last month.

Still somewhat shaky, Vonn was 21st in a giant slalom last weekend in Aspen and skipped the slalom to head to her favorite hunting ground: Lake Louise.

She crushed the first training run this week, finished third in the second run while testing a new setup, and skipped the final training run when her stomach bug bit again. Then on Friday she put the hammer down and bested teammate Stacey Cook by 1.73 seconds and the rest of the field by even more.

“I felt like I had to win today,” Vonn said Friday. “When you say you want to race with the men, you can't really not win the women's races. I was trying to prove a point today, mostly to myself, but also to everyone else who doesn't think that I could compete with the fastest guys.”

The win was Vonn’s 54th career victory -- one behind retired Swiss racer Vreni’s Schneider’s 55 career wins (second only to Austria’s Annemarie Moeser-Proll’s 62). A win for Vonn in Saturday’s downhill would tie Schneider, and a victory in Sunday’s super G would put Vonn all alone in the second spot.

Vonn swept the three races at Lake Louise last season, and now has 12 career wins there (10 in downhill and two in super G).

“This gives me confidence,” Vonn said after her win on Friday. “The only thing I'm concerned about right now is my energy level. I'm just trying to make sure that I can compete throughout the entire weekend. After missing the training run [Thursday] I was a little unsure of myself, but once I got in the starting gate, that all went away.”

A sweep would also put Vonn right back in the hunt to defend her fourth overall World Cup title from last season. The Vail racer now has 110 points this season. Slovenia’s Tina Maze leads the chase with 310, but victories are worth 100 points each, and Vonn appears on track to grab two more this weekend.

On the men’s side, Italy’s Christof Innerhofer edged Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal for the downhill title on Beaver Creek’s Birds of Prey course on Friday. The top American was Travis Ganong in 16th.

Racing action, free and open to the public, continues on Saturday and Sunday with a super G and a giant slalom at Beaver Creek. For full scheduling details, go to www.bcworldcup.com.

Have a chicken coop... Before you bring in the chicks, have their place of shelter in place. Select a safe place to build your chicken coop. Generally chickens are relatively hardy animals, but that doesn't mean they don't require shelter and a place to roost. You can buy a coop or make your own. Use pine shavings and corn cob as bedding. Avoid newspaper since it does not absorb well not to mention that it is slippery which can lead to deforming of your chicken's legs. buy pork online

Many people are still hesitant to get on the train because of the stigma that crossbows used to hold. The older models that were introduced were extremely front heavy, unbalanced, and [frankly] not the safest hunting items to use. I can honestly say that there has been many technological advancements in crossbows (as well as the archery/bow hunting communities) that can crush these long-held notions. gew 98 for sale

Now let us say that those same two thugs are either deaf or just really stupid and don't retreat when you set the alarm off. Well now those two gentlemen have a real problem because what you have at your disposal is a 2000,000 volt stun device. Just the crackle of electricity and bright blue arc of light should be enough to intimidate even the fiercest of attackers but should they want to test what 200,000 volts will do then by all means let them experience it. Let me tell you what will happen to an attacker that gets jolted with a couple hundred thousand volts, they will stop attacking usually.
