Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud is continuing his stunning early season form in the World Cup Men’s downhill, notching up his third win in a row at Beaver Creek in the USA.

It takes him to the top of the overall World Cup table, and gives him a vital confidence boost on the hills where the 2015 World Championship will be fought out in February.

In second place was Swiss skier Beat Feuz, just over half a second slower.

In third place was America’s Steven Nyman.

Jansrud, 29, only really caught fire at the Sochi Olympics after years of steady skiing without a win. He now has six victories and is in the form of his life.
