Lindesy Vonn has written to the FIS asking for permission to compete in the Men's World Cup race in Lake Louise next month. However, if she is allowed to compete she will miss the Women's slalom and giant slalom in Aspen Colorado which will take place the same day.
"It’s complicated because no racer is supposed to ski on a race course a week prior to his or her own competition. If Lindsey Vonn could train and compete with the men in November, she would have a huge advantage on her rivals the following week during the women’s races on the same course,” Atle Skaardal, the director of the women’s World Cup said.
