MAYER ENDS DRY SPELL IN GIANT SLALOM

Christian Mayer's four-year victory drought finally ended Sunday.

Mayer had to battle a damaged, tricky course, beat a world champion and fight off the strongest team on the men's World Cup ski circuit -- his Austrian teammates -- to win a giant slalom race.

Mayer clocked the fastest time in the first run, then took risks in the second, down the steep Gran Risa course, to earn his second World Cup victory.
