The men’s Audi FIS Alpine World Cup downhill title was pushed to the wire Saturday as Austrian Klaus Kroell snagged the discipline lead from Swiss Didier Cuche with a victory on the 1994 Olympic track. With just one downhill remaining on March 14 at World Cup Finals in Schladming, Austria, Kroell carries a 48 point lead over Cuche, who finished 10th on the day. Another Swiss, Beat Feuz, was fourth to bump his overall lead to 55 points ahead of Marcel Hircher of Austria, who did not compete. Travis Ganong was the top U.S. finisher in 30th.

Bode Miller qualified for Finals with fourth in the downhill standings, but will not compete due to a season-ending injury.

A super G is scheduled for Sunday to close the speed weekend in Kvitfjell.
