    Starts again this weekend as usual in Sölden.

    Just read that Anna Fenninger injured her knee in training and was flown by helicopter to clinic in Innsbruck.

    This is after a somewhat dramatic off season with a long running on again off again dispute she had with the Austrian ski federation and the president which was eventually resolved.

    Skionline.ch have just reported ruptured ACL and Medial ligament (if the facebook translator works properly) for Anna Fenniger, ending this season before it even began....

    jeez, that's terrible - she's a fantastic skier
    Mikaela Shiffrin is moving to speed events this year, so this is big for her

    seriously, Ms Vonn fought her way back when she could have just retired - fairly inspiring, I reckon

    is this Lara or Anna you're marrying?
    I've seen Anna's bf - he's a competitive snowboarder whose family run a hotel somewhere like Schladming (¿?)
    not sure re Lara's status
    just need to be realistic about the competition

    so, same track as yest?
    hope they groom it a bit better, especially the rutted bit
    some of the ladies were very poorly served and the others would have been apprehensive
