The up-and-coming Riesch picked up her second win in three days Sunday, as she tied for first place with a time of one minute and 25.04 seconds. Montillet later matched her time in the closest race so far this season. The 19-year-old Riesch also dominated the first of back-to-back downhills here Friday, before suffering a high-speed crash Saturday.

Super-G world champion Michaela Dorfmeister of Austria finished third, 15/100ths of a second back. Renate Goetschl of Austria finished 16th and retained her lead in the overall World Cup standings with 1,048 from 25 races. Anja Paerson of Sweden is second 28 points back, followed by Hilde Gerg of Germany with 870 points.

Gerg still leads the Super-G standings with 345 points despite a 13th place finish Sunday. Goetschl is second with 331, followed by Montillet with 322.
