A consistent top-level performer throughout her Audi ski cross World Cup career, Austria's Andrea Limbacher stepped it up last season on the biggest day of the season to take her place among the sport's elite, claiming a thrilling victory on home soil at the Kreischberg 2015 Freestyle World Ski Championships.
After two difficult seasons of setbacks and injuries, Limbacher in 2014/15 was able to regain the form that saw her finish fifth overall on the World Cup circuit in 2011/12. She was able to steadily pick up steam over the course of 2014/15 to the point where she finished the season with four podiums in the final six events, moving herself into sixth place on the ski cross points list by the time the season was over.
Her performance in Kreischberg was a standout not only of her season, but of the entire Freestyle World Cup year, as she was the only local athlete to podium at the 2015 world championships. Doing it as she did in a stacked final against the legendary Ophelie David (FRA) and fearsome Fanny Smith (SUI) only made the moment sweeter, and the diminutive Austrian should be able to use her triumph to raise her game even higher in 2015/16.
