BORMIO, Italy (AP) — Aiming to repeat his win from a day earlier, Dominik Paris of Italy led the downhill portion of a World Cup Alpine combined race on Friday.
Paris held a 0.21-second advantage ahead of Olympic downhill champion Matthias Mayer of Austria.
Peter Fill of Italy was third, 0.50 behind.
Paris won a traditional downhill on Thursday.
Race favorite Alexis Pinturault of France stood 19th, with 1.65 to make up in the slalom run later. Pinturault has won six World Cup combined races.
Combined world champion Luca Aerni of Switzerland was 41st, 3.23 behind.
Overall World Cup leader Marcel Hirscher, the 2015 combined world champion, did not enter.
The winner will be determined by adding the times from the downhill and slalom runs.
