PHOTOS: Men’s and Women’s World Cup Finals downhill races

The World Cup season ends in Aspen this week with the Finals at Aspen Mountain, and the action started Wednesday with the downhill.

Besides the individual races, the season titles are on the line.

Italian teammates Dominik Paris and Peter Fill went 1-2 in the men’s race, and Fill was able to jump Norway’s Kjetil Jansrud in the season standings to win the crystal globe. Fill, who had a solid week of training, trailed Jansrud by 33 points going into Wednesday’s race, but Jansrud struggled and finished 11th, earning just 24 points to Fill’s 80 points for second place.

The women’s downhill season title was barely on the line and Ikla Stuhec wasted little time securing the season downhill title, winning easily on Aspen Mountain. Lindsey Vonn of Vail finished second to end an injury-plagued DH season.
