CORTINA D’AMPEZZO, Italy — Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany won a shortened World Cup super-G amid heavy snow Sunday, while Lindsey Vonn struggled with the difficult conditions and lost her lead in the super-G standings to Tina Maze.
Rebensburg, the Olympic champion in giant slalom, finished in 1 minute, 16.45 seconds down the Olympia delle Tofane course. Nicole Schmidhofer of Austria was second, 0.33 seconds behind, and overall leader Maze of Slovenia took third, 0.34 back.
Bend’s Laurenne Ross finished in 14th place with a time of 1:17.68.
“Everything fit together top to bottom," Rebensburg said. “I had a good feeling and my technique was good. Sometimes we have (bad weather) in training, so we are used to that. But it’s a race and you really want to push, and today I was really focused."
Vonn, who finished seventh, dropped four points behind Maze in the super-G standings after four of seven races.
Running away with the title in the overall standings, Maze increased her lead to a massive 718 points ahead of Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany, who finished 19th.
