After missing the first half of the season due to a knee injury sustained in training, Lindsey Vonn has returned to Europe to test the waters and her knee. Training must have gone well in South Tyrol, Italy this past week, because early Monday morning Vonn confirmed via Instagram that she will be racing in the upcoming downhill and super-G races in St. Anton, Austria.

In classic Lindsey Vonn fashion, her six weeks away have been no resting period. The winningest woman in the history of the sport has been hard at work in hopes that her comeback will lead to five wins, five wins that will break Ingemar Stenmark’s record and make Vonn the all-time leader in World Cup wins.

Downhill training will start on January 10th. The official downhill race will take place Saturday, January 12th followed by super-G on Sunday.
