Austria’s Max Franz was victorious in the weather-plagued men’s World Cup super-G in Beaver Creek, Colorado, on Saturday. After heavy snowfall forced the original start to be lowered and the start time pushed back a full hour to 12:00pm MTN, racing action finally got underway with snow and variable visibility factoring in to each racer’s run.

Franz was followed in second place by Switzerland’s Mauro Caviezel, who captured his second podium in as many days after finishing in third in yesterday’s downhill, finishing 0.33 seconds shy of Franz. There was a rare three-way tie for third with a pair of Norwegians, Aleksander Aamodt Kilde and Aksel Lund Swindal, joining Italy’s Dominik Paris at 0.41 seconds back.

Travis Ganong led the Americans in 15th place, 0.78 seconds back, and was followed by Ryan Cochran-Siegle in 17th, Steven Nyman in 20th, Ted Ligety in 22nd, and Thomas Biesemeyer in 26th.

Stay tuned for full race coverage.
