BEAVER CREEK - Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal won Friday's Alpine Ski World Cup men's downhill race at Beaver Creek, Colorado, his third consecutive triumph after two Canadian victories last weekend. Svindal handled the "Birds of Prey" course, the same one used last February for the world championships, in 1min 42.34 seconds for his 28th career World Cup win. Svindal, who won last week's downhill and Super-G at Lake Louise, defeated compatriot and training partner Kjetil Jansrud by .30 of a second with Frenchman Guillermo Fayed third,. "I was well prepared I guess, like Kjetil," Svindal said. "Our trainings are high quality. Nobody wants to be behind. I was very fast on the top. I knew I had to be faster. That was the most important section." Jansrud said he was pleased with his run.
