Still recovering from right knee surgery, Lindsey Vonn has decided to skip Saturday's season-opening race in Austria, preferring to return next month.Vonn has been training on the glacier in Soelden for the last week and made her decision Wednesday.
She'll return at the races in Beaver Creek, from Nov. 29-Dec. 1.
"While I physically feel great, I have decided to not race this weekend and instead will focus on returning in Beaver Creek," Vonn said. "I am confident the extra month of training will ultimately put me in the best position to have a successful season."
Vonn shredded her anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in a crash at the world championships in Schladming last February.
The Olympic downhill champion and four-time overall World Cup winner hopes to be back in top form for the Sochi Olympics in February.
