Viktoria Rebensburg pipped Ana Drev to World Cup giant slalom victory in Maribor on Saturday as Lindsey Vonn crashed out but held onto the overall lead.

It was a second giant slalom win in a row for German Rebensburg after also pushing Drev into second place in Flachau.

The final difference between the two was just 00.32seconds, with Liechtenstein's Tina Weirather completing the podium.

Vonn's dramatic fall did not prove too costly in the end as her closest overall World Cup rival Lara Gut also made a mess of her second run and failed to finish.
