German just misses out at Lenzerheide giant slalom to wonderful Worley.

Viktoria Rebensburg just missed out on a second win in five days as giant slalom rival Tessa Worley beat her by an agonising 0.07seconds in Lenzerheide.

The German looked set for another victory to add to her Kronplatz win earlier in the week when she comfortably beat Slovenian Meta Hrovat’s time, however France’s Worley recovered from an early scare to pip her.
