Italian racer Karbon out with knee injury

According a report on FISalpine.com, Italian giant slalom specialist Denise Karbon was injured this week in a training crash in Madesimo, Italy. The 30-year-old damaged the meniscus in her right knee and will require surgery. Doctors have set her recovery time for around a month. The 2008 giant slalom World Cup champion and six-time World Cup winner has been set back by a series of injuries in the last few seasons. She will be operated on in Bressanova, Italy.

Karbon failed to finish the World Cup season-opening race in Sölden two weeks ago after standing in sixth after first run. The next GS on the women’s calendar will take place on Nov. 27 in Aspen, Colo. followed by another in St Moritz (SUI) on Dec. 12.
