A week after Dressen's triumph, Team Germany celebrates again with Viktoria Rebensburg (GER) who, ten years after Maria Hoefl Riesch victory in Garmisch-Partenkirchen Downhill brought back the german flag on the top of the podium in home soil. This is the first time that two Germans have won in Garmisch since 2010 since Maria Hoefl-Riesch and Felix Neureuther won in the same season.
For Viktoria Rebensburg it is the 19th career win, and second of the season, after triumphing in Lake Louise's super-G but most important she conquers for the first time in her career a downhill Wolrd Cup race.
Federica Brignone (ITA) once again proves her perfect skiing condition with the third straight podium finish in a downhill that helped her close the gap to overall leader Mikaela Shiffrin (USA) to 190 points. Federica Brignone skied with bib number 2, and she waited till the german ski star crossed the finish line 0.61sec ahead.
Ester Ledecká (CZE) has been off the pace in recent races, but she claimed the tricky and icy Kandahar slope in third maintaining her third position in the downhill standing.
The rest of the field, led by Sofia Goggia(ITA), finished 0,95 seconds off the leads in fourth followed by Corinne Suter (SUI) in fifth, still leading the discipline standings ahead of Mikaela Shiffrin who's taking a break from ski racing since the death of her father, Jeff Shiffrin, last week.
The weekend in Garmisch-Partenkirchen will turn the chapter with a Super-G race tomorrow.
