ZAGREB, Croatia — Marcel Hirscher won a World Cup night slalom Thursday in difficult conditions and took first place in the overall standings.
The Austrian led after the first run on the Crveni Spust course, which rapidly deteriorated because of warm weather.
He finished in a combined time of 1 minute, 51.84 seconds to beat Felix Neureuther of Germany by 0.29 seconds. In the standings, Hirscher overtook Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal, who skipped the race.
Defending overall champion Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third, 0.48 seconds behind.
