Lindsey Vonn Wins—Again—at Birds of Prey

Lindsey Vonn wins another World Cup race, this time at Beaver Creek.
Lindsey Vonn "Tebowing" at Birds of Prey

Lindsey Vonn is starting to annoy us just a little, making our beloved sport of skiing look so darn easy just about everytime she slides into the start gate. With her super-G victory yesterday at her adopted hometown of Beaver Creek, Vonn has now won her fourth consecutive World Cup race—becoming the first American racer to pull that off. But we love Lindsey (how can you not?), as do the local Vail Valley school kids. A lot of them skipped school to watch the race. We’re guessing they didn’t get in much trouble. Check out more in the Denver Post.

Lindsey Vonn Wins Lake Louise Super-G

Lindsey Vonn and Maria Riesch were victorious at the women's World Cup in Lake Louise this weekend. Julia Mancuso finished strongly, too. "We've got the best downhill team in the world," she said at Saturday night's bib draw, before coming in third in the Super-G. We've got photos from the races.

We don’t generally cover ski racing. But we decided this particular news—an American winning the World Cup two years in a row—was worthy. Enjoy your yearly dose of token ski-racing coverage.
