How does Lara Gut-Behami get off the starting blocks? Your winter should have started long ago.

Lara Gut-Behrami (31) does not know that. She has been completing the full World Cup program for 14 years, but she has never started a winter so late. Solden? Has been cancelled. The Matterhorn descents? Likewise. Lech Zürs? Also there, no race. And because Gut-Behrami doesn’t do slaloms, the Levi weekend also passed her. There is a risk that she will be rusty before her season opener, the giant slalom in Killington (USA). «The situation is unfavourable. It wasn’t easy for Lara to keep up the tension,” says women’s head coach Beat Tschuor.

Sure, Gut-Behrami benefits from her experience. Nevertheless, the disadvantages compared to a driver like Mikaela Shiffrin (27), who has already won two races, are obvious. Especially since the 76-time World Cup winner is enjoying a real home game in the state of Vermont – 40,000 spectators are expected in the village of 1,407. “But Lara makes a very good impression here in training. She can deal with the situation, »says Tschuor.
