Cuche wins Chamonix downhill

Didier Cuche of Switzerland won the Chamonix downhill for the first time on Saturday for his second World Cup win this season.
Cuche clocked 1 minute, 58.91 seconds down the 3.37-kilometer (2.09-mile) Verte course, with Italian Dominik Paris 0.67 back. The Swiss veteran became the oldest man to win a World Cup race last week by claiming the Kitzbuehel downhill at the age of 36.
Austrian Klaus Kroell was third, 0.88 seconds adrift.
The race was interrupted for about 30 minutes after Canadian skier Manuel Osborne-Paradis crashed heavily and was airlifted to a hospital. The 26-year-old Osborne-Paradis' condition was not immediately known.
