Lindsey Vonn and the boys

The American ski champion would like to race the men on the easy, Lake Louise downhill course in order to add one more feather to her Red Bull cap.

To me, this is pretty silly. I've also felt that the “battle of the sexes” is totally meaningless from a basic bio-mechanical standpoint. If she had the backbone to say “Kitzb├╝hel” or “Bormio”, she'd get more of my attention, but Lake Louise? Give me a break!

She should instead focus her attention on both Lara Gut and Sofia Goggia, with the latter beating her up fair and square on the PyeongChang course last season.

If she doesn't, she might be side-slipping into the ski sunset like Bode Miller just did, by only boasting and not delivering...
