Svindal leads Norwegian sweep of Val Gardena super-G

VAL GARDENA, Italy (AP) -- Aksel Lund Svindal led a Norwegian sweep of the podium in a World Cup super-G on Friday.

Adding to his record with a fourth career win in this race, Svindal clocked 1 minute, 28.12 seconds for a 0.34 seconds advantage over teammate Kjetil Jansrud.

Aleksander Aamodt Kilde finished third, 0.44 behind, for the best result of his career.

Jansrud won this race last year, while Kilde had never finished better than seventh on the World Cup.

Olympic downhill champion Matthias Mayer of Austria finished fourth, missing the podium by 0.10.

The course was made up almost entirely of artificial snow amid unusually warm weather in the Dolomites Range.

The classic downhill is scheduled for Saturday on the Saslong course.
