(PhatzRadio / CBC Sports) — Tina Maze of Slovenia led a women’s World Cup super-combined event by the smallest of margins Friday after the super-G in St. Moritz, Switzerland.
Maze, who tops the overall standings, came down the Engiadina course in 1 minute 19.06 seconds to edge out Lara Gut of Switzerland by 0.01 of a second.
Pre-race favourites Maria Hoefl-Riesch of Germany was 0.05 behind, while Lindsey Vonn of the United States trailed by 0.27.
The slalom run is later Friday.
Julia Mancuso of the United States was 0.50 behind in fifth and world super-combined champion Anna Fenninger of Austria placed sixth, 0.59 behind Maze.
This is the first of only two super-combined events this season. They count for the overall standings, but no crystal globe will be awarded to the discipline champion.
