The 36-year-old -- who is set to compete in his fourth Winter Games in Sochi next month -- timed 1min 10.38sec to edge out in-form American star Bode Miller by five hundredths of a second.

Norwegian Aksel Lund Svindal's rewarding weekend continued as he further extended his lead in the overall World Cup standings by finishing equal third in the Super-G.

The 31-year-old -- the defending Super-G Olympic champion -- was 15 hundredths off the pace along with Austrian Max Franz.
