Rebensburg wins second giant slalom

Germany's Viktoria Rebensburg won Saturday's giant slalom here for her sixth World Cup victory and third of the season as she consolidated her place at the top of the discipline's season standings.

Rebensburg timed 2min 28.99sec to finish 0.26sec ahead of American Lindsey Vonn, with Slovenia's Tina Maze taking third at 0.39sec.

"Two wins in two days, I couldn't dream of more," said the 22-year-old Rebensburg. "It wasn't easy to ski. The second run was very direct and I lost the track a little."

In the battle for the crystal globes, Rebensburg now stands 135 points clear of Vonn in the discipline standings.

But the American seems set for a fourth overall title, 494 points ahead of Maze with just six races left in the season.
