KITZBUEHEL, Austria - Canada's Erik Guay finished second on Saturday in the classic men's World Cup downhill.

The reigning world downhill champion from Mont Tremblant, Que., finished in one minute 57.69 seconds, just 0.13 seconds back of Domink Paris.

Paris became the second Italian skier to win the classic men's World Cup downhill in Kitzbuehel, following in the footsteps of Kristian Ghedina, who won in 1998.

Hannes Reichelt of Austria was 0.36 seconds back in third place.

Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway, who won Friday's super-G, finished 10th and failed to overtake Marcel Hirscher atop the overall standings. The Austrian skipped the race.

Paris, who also won in Bormio in December, and teammate Christof Innerhofer now share four downhill victories this season, a record for the Italian team.

Vancouver's Manuel Osborne-Paradis finished 10th, Ben Thomsen of Invermere, B.C., was 17th and Calgary's Jan Hudec was 18th.
