ADELBODEN, Switzerland — Marcel Hirscher of Austria won a World Cup giant slalom on Saturday to increase his lead in the overall standings.
Two days after he won the Zagreb night slalom, Hirscher won a close race by just 0.08 seconds ahead of veteran teammate Benjamin Raich.
The 22-year-old Hirscher, who led after the morning first run, had a combined two-run time of 2 minute 42.50 seconds. Raich used a blistering second run to rise from sixth and edge out Massimiliano Blardone of Italy into third by a further 0.02.
Ted Ligety of the United States trailed Hirscher by 0.14 in fourth, and kept his lead in the GS discipline standings.
Hirscher's second GS win this season was his seventh career World Cup victory.
