American Michaela Shiffrin will round up a group of the top seven skiers of the world. Last year's winner Alice Robinson has bib 3 and the winner of two giant slalom races this season, Italian Bassino will start with bib 6 . Together with Petra Vlhova (with bib 5) these are also top rivals for 57. Golden Fox giant slalom.
Slovenian bib numbers: 11 Meta Hrovat, 20 Tina Robnik, 23 Ana Bucik, 56 Neja Dvornik, 63 Andreja Slokar and 64 Ilka Štuhec.
This race is the first Golden Fox event with no spectators. Even though, the world’s best skiers will not compete without fan support and cheering. NLB - Nova Ljubljanska banka, as a general patron is taking over the cheering. Using their Instragram @nlb_slo and Facebook profile @NLBdd they gathered cheering sounds created by fans and those cheering sounds will be played on larger speakers along the entire racecourse. Competition must not host any spectators, but it does not mean you will not hear the fans!
