     Greewood, second in the first run, posted a two-run time of 2 minutes, 6.96 seconds to win by more than eight-tenths of a second over Nicholas Conte of France. World champion Thomas Prugger of Italy was third in 2:08.07.
     Chris Klug of Aspen, Colo., was third in the morning run but had problems on his second ride and dropped to seventh place.
