"I don't know exactly where I'd stack up, but that's kind of the whole point, to see where I stand and see how much farther I can push my skiing because the men, they're skiing is the best in the world hands down. That's where I want to get my skiing to be."
With her 56th World Cup victory, Vonn moved past Switzerland's Vreni Schneider into second on the career list. Vonn needs six more to match the 62 of Annamarie Moser-Proell of Austria as the winningest skier in women's World Cup history.
The next women's World Cup is in St. Moritz, Switzerland, starting next Friday.
"Those kinds of records are really hard for me to think about because they mean so much to me," Vonn said. "Annamarie is a legend. She's held that record for so many years and it's been thought to be untouchable.
"I don't picture myself in the same league as her so to be this close and still feel like I have a few more years of racing left in me is much more than I ever anticipated."
