The atmosphere was just incredible in the snow arena of Maribor as the 49th edition of the Golden Fox Trophy went down in history. On the giant slalom day, around 20,000 spectators flocked into the stadium to cheer for local hero Tina Maze who finished just 0.08 seconds behind the surprise winner of the day, Lindsey Vonn. With this victory Lindsey claimed her 3rd career win in this specialty, after having struggled to break into the top 20 in giant slalom in tech races this season.

On Sunday, again in front of 20,000 cheering fans and after narrowly missing the victory in the giant slalom, Tina Maze didn’t give the rest of the field the slightest chance to beat her in the slalom.

After Munich, Moscow was the second City Event on the schedule of the 2012/13 Audi FIS Ski World Cup tour and proved again to be a great show. The excitement was high in the Russian capital when Austria‘s skiing ace Marcel Hirscher and Germany‘s surprise winner Lena Dürr were crowned champions of the night in a tight head-to-head slalom battle. Never before in the top five, Lena Dürr went for it in all-or-nothing style in every heat of the event. For Hirscher it was the first victory in a City Event.
