Adelboden, Switzerland, Jan. 9, 2001--Hermann Maier of Austria took control on the first leg Tuesday and went on to earn his third giant slalom victory of the season, this time by more than a half-second, while Erik Schlopy (Park City, UT) bagged his fifth top-10 of the winter, finishing fifth.

Maier had a two-run time of 2:15.53 with World Cup GS leader Michael Von Gruenigen of Switzerland in second place at 2:16.06 andSwede Fredrik Nyberg in third at 2:16.25.

Schlopy, seventh on the first run, moved up to fifth with a total time of 2:16.75. He was the only American to reach the second run;almost midway through the season, he's 10th overall and fifth in GS points.

The men return to speed racing on the weekend in Wengen, Switzerland with two doublehills, Friday (a makeup from Bormio, Italy)and Saturday, plus a slalom Sunday, which works into a combined calculation.
