It was delight and a home win for Riegler as the Austrian rider delivered a sixth career World Cup showing that at 45 years old, age is just a number.

Germany's Stefan Baumeister celebrated victory in the men's competition as he finished 0.40s faster than Switzerland's Dario Caviezel in the big final.

It was the German’s third career World Cup gold while the current overall standings leader, Benjamin Karl, had to settle for third as he denied Lukas Mathies a podium finish on home snow.
