Marcel Hirscher dominated the World Cup giant slalom on Sunday giving the Austrian Alpine Ski men’s team their first win of the season.
 
The overall world cup holder collected his 13th Career victory in a time of 1:54.10 seconds.
 
After being on the podium four times this year he said his first win is a relief and a turning point.
 
Stafan Luitz finished second 1.16 seconds adrift.
A junior world silver medallist, this is the first significant result for the 20-year-old German in the top flight.
 
Third place went to world champion, Ted Ligety.
The American, 28, dislikes the Bellevarde course and struggled to find pace on the steep piste.
 
But after winning the first two giant slaloms of the season, a podium here still leaves him at the top of the overall standings.
