  • Results

     SESTRIERE, Italy (AP) -- France's Nicolas Conte used a brilliant second ride Monday to capture a Snowboard World Cup giant slalom race for his first victory of the season.
     After clocking 47.84 seconds in his first trip to stand in a tie for fourth place, Conte clinched the win with a time of 44.85 in the decisive run.
     Conte was the only competitor to break 45 seconds on the 800-meter course at Sestriere in Italy's western Alps and his total of 1 minute, 32.69 seconds was 0.57 better than runner-up Ueli Kestenholz of Switzerland.
     A trio of Austrians followed, with Dieter Happ (1:33.48), Siegfried Grabner (1:33.63) and Felix Stadler 1:34.27 in places three through five. Defending world champion Thomas Prugger of Italy was eighth in 1:34.63.
     Austria's Martin Freinademetz was another .04 back in ninth place, but held onto his lead in the World Cup standings, because a snowboarder's worst finish isn't calculated. Freinademetz leads with 2,300 points, 250 more than Kestenholz. Happ is third with 2,000 and Conte fourth with 1,800.
