It was a close-run contest between Mayer and compatriot Vincent Kriechmayr, who finished just 0.04 seconds behind his fellow Austrian.

While Swiss racer Urs Kryenbuehl was only two-hundredths behind Kriechmayr to complete the podium.

After only managing to finish on the podium at the historic Italian venue previously, Mayer finally came out on top to record his tenth World Cup win.

The victory has seen Mayer move up to second in the World Cup downhill standings, 32 points behind leader Aleksander Aamodt Kilde.
