Slovenia’s Tina Maze produced yet another flawless run to win her fourth straight World Cup giant slalom race in Courchevel on Sunday.

The 29 year old finished with a combined time of 2 minutes, 16.84 seconds and this result sees her extend her overall lead at the top of the standings as defending champion Lindsey Vonn had another disappointing day and failed to complete the first leg.

Two-time Olympic champion Maria Hoefl-Riesch is currently lying in third place, 331 points adrift.

Austria’s Kathrin Zettel overcame a nervous start to finish runner up for the third time this season while local favourite Tessa Worley held her nerve to finish third, 0.40 seconds behind.
