Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal won the World Cup super-G in Val Gardena, Italy, on Friday with a total time of 1:28.65 seconds. In contrast to last season’s fog-marred race, sunshine and blue skies made for fast and flowy racing down the storied Italian track.
Svindal was joined on the podium by Italian star, Christof Innerhofer, in second place, a slim 0.05 seconds back and Attacking Viking teammate, Kjetil Jansrud, in third, 0.27 seconds off the pace.
The American contingent was led by Travis Ganong in 24th place, 1.45 seconds back, and was joined in the top 30 by Steven Nyman in 26th and Ryan Cochran-Siegle in 29th.
