Brockhoff, 27, from Melbourne overcame difficult weather conditions and equipment problems to reach her third straight big final this season, and took the silver medal in a photo finish just beating the third place finisher.
“I had a lot of equipment malfunction”, a relieved Brockhoff commented after the race.
“I had my boots break, parts on all three of my bindings break and my warmup gear broke. Had to duct tape it all up”
“I wasn’t feeling confident yesterday and had a bit of bone bruising in my knee. I just made the switch mentally before I went to sleep.”
“Six months ago, I didn’t have the confidence to ride in conditions with very poor visibility. “
“A lot of that confidence came back yesterday and today, which was more of an achievement than a silver medal for me.”
Taking the victory was Italian rider Michela Moioli with her teammate Raffaella Brutto in third.
The podium result is the ninth medal of Brockoff's World Cup career (3 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze), and puts her in second place on the World Cup standings after three events this season.
In the men's event, 2018 Olympic Silver medalist Jarryd Hughes was the best placed Australian in 11th position, with Cameron Bolton 18th and Adam Dickson 40th.
