GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany — Lara Gut of Switzerland won her first Super-G race of the season on Sunday to cut into Lindsey Vonn's overall World Cup lead.

Viktoria Rebensburg of Germany edged Vonn for second place and prevented the American from winning back-to-back races on the Kandahar hill. Vonn won Saturday's downhill.

Still, Vonn set an all-time high with her 42nd podium finish in a Super-G. Renate Goetschl of Austria had 41.

Vonn's 27 World Cup wins in Super-G races is already a record for both men and women. She had won seven of the last eight Super-G races going back to January 2015.

But Gut found the winning line on a dark and bumpy course to win by .15 seconds. Vonn was .23 seconds back in third.

Gut now has 17 career wins.
