Hirscher triumphs in giant slalom


Marcel Hirscher matched Alberto Tomba with a record fourth giant slalom win in Alta Badia on Sunday.

The overall World Cup leader from Austria increased his first-leg lead and finished 0.71 seconds ahead of Mathieu Faivre of France and 1.10 in front of Florian Eisath of Italy.

Alexis Pinturault, the Frenchman who won the GS on home snow in Val d’Isere last weekend, fell early in his second run, spun around and crashed into the safety netting at high speed. Pinturault, who was seventh after the opening run, appeared to avoid serious injury.
