Ted Ligety blows away competition in season’s 1st GS race
Ted Ligety won the 2012/13  first Giant Slalom World Cup race in Soelden. Manfred Moelgg and Marcel Hirscher came 2nd and 3rd. Ligety’s time of 2:36.02, beat  Moelgg by 2.75 seconds and local Hirscher by 3.12 seconds.

“I didn’t think this was possible,” Ligety said. This is an unbelievable gap, a once-in-a-career margin.”

“That’s probably a once in a career achievement,”  said Ligety,  surprised about his outstanding performance on his new skis.

The time difference between the winner and the runner-up in a World Cup GS has only been bigger six times previousl —  in the 1970s.
