ST. MORITZ, Switzerland Lindsey Vonn is looking on the bright side after a poor run in foggy conditions derailed her bid to tie the U.S. record for World Cup downhill victories.
"We still have four more downhills left," Vonn said Saturday after finishing tied for fifth behind Slovenia's Tina Maze, who took advantage of sunnier conditions to ski the Corviglia course in 1 minute, 44.38 seconds.
"The light was really bad and it was really bumpy," said Vonn, who was attempting to match Picabo Street and Daron Rahlves with nine downhills wins. "I tried to fight the whole way, but you couldn't see anything."
Vonn retained her lead in the downhill standings after finishing 0.42 seconds behind Maze, who got her first World Cup podium finish this season after starting 47th when sunny spells had replaced the fog.
Vonn tied for fifth with Elisabeth Goergl of Austria.It wasn't a good day for U.S. skiers. Julia Mancuso was 2.14 seconds back in 25th with Stacey Cook 5.67 seconds behind in 36th, while Leanne Smith and Libby Ludlow both went out.
