Viktoria Rebensburg tied the German record for World Cup giant slalom victories as she recorded the tenth triumph of her career in Maribor, Slovenia.

Rebensburg lay in second place following the first run, behind Eva-Maria Brem of Austria, but skied superbly to overhaul the deficit and post a winning time of 2 minutes 29.82 seconds.

Brem actually dropped to fourth by the end of the second run as home favourite Ana Drev took second and Tina Weirather of Leichtenstein third.

Rebensburg's ten giant slalom victories match the number won by Martina Ertl-Renz – a German record – and the 26-year-old will be expecting to overhaul her compatriot in the near future.

American superstar Lindsey Vonn crashed out in the second leg after an already disappointing first leg that had left her several seconds off the pace.

The victory moves Rebensburg up to third in the overall World Cup standings with Vonn of the USA top on 900 points and Switzerland's Lara Gut 45 behind her in second place.
