Ligety claims GS World Cup title
KRANJSKA GORA, Slovenia (March 9) Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) shredded the wet snow with authority, winning the Kranjska Gora giant slalom and securing the fourth Audi FIS Alpine World Cup GS title of his career.
Ligety used his aggressive arcs to power down the rutted course ahead of Austrian Marcel Hirscher to win his fifth giant slalom race this season and a record fifth in Kranjska Gora. He now stands firmly in third place in the World Cup overall standings with five races left in the season.
"To win here again is incredible and I’m really proud of it," Ligety said. "It’s a big weight off my back. I had an awesome season in giant slalom but Hirscher was with me the whole season. It makes it tough going for the title. It was a head game when he was so close all along."

While walking down Main Street early Sunday afternoon, one couldn’t help but notice the electric atmosphere. The street was completely blocked off, making way for some of the best cyclists in the world to compete in the sixth and final stage of the Tour of Utah.
