VAL DISERE, France -- Norway dominated, Kjetil Jansrud won, Austria struggled. Nike Air Huarache Mens .The first downhill of the mens World Cup season on Saturday traced the same path down the sun-soaked Val dIsere course as the super-G one day earlier.Jansrud has gone 2-for-2 in the first speed races with teammate Aksel Lund Svindal defying expectations after a 10-month injury absence to join him again on the podium.Relying on technical skills ahead of pure speed, Jansrud was 0.26 seconds faster than Peter Fill of Italy, the defending World Cup downhill champion, down the 3.4-kilometer (2-mile) Oreiller-Killy course.Its an amazing beginning, said Jansrud, who won the season-long downhill title in 2015. You never know, but I hoped for sure for a start like this.Svindal, who was runner-up on Friday, placed third, trailing 0.33 behind his fellow Norwegian. Only the top three finished in under two minutes.Im very satisfied, said Svindal, who lacked stamina after limited top-level training since rupturing his right ligaments in January. Its a very hard landing (on the jumps) and I took a second before I got my breath.For the second straight day, Norway and Italy filled the podium and the traditionally powerful Austria team was never in contention.The best placed Austrian, in 17th, was Olympic champion Matthias Mayer who came down 1.45 slower than Jansrud.It was a terrible day, Austria team director Hans Pum told The Associated Press. In the last 40 years I cant remember many like this. We have to analyze exactly what has happened.Austrias winless streak in the marquee downhill discipline extended to 13 races since Hannes Reichelt won at Kvitfjell, Norway, in March 2015.Norway has now won eight of those 13 downhills, with Svindal, Jansrud and Aleksander Aamodt Kilde all taking victories for a small but high-class team.Everyone will start screaming in the Austrian media, for sure, said Jansrud, adding he was not surprised at the rival teams result, citing Mayer returning from a back injury and Reichelt slowed by knee pains.We need to have fast Austrians to keep the entertainment coming and the spectators coming, said Jansrud, who took downhill bronze behind Mayer at the 2014 Sochi Olympics.Jansruds win on Saturday was keyed by skiing well through a turning middle section in the shadows where rivals typically lost at least a half-second to him.The lead was threatened by Steven Nyman before the United States racer strayed wide into rough snow midway down. Nyman placed 15th, ending his streak of four straight top-three finishes in downhill.While Jansrud was only 18th fastest at either of the two speed checks, Fill was the only racer to hit 122 kph (76 mph).Im surprised for my performance, said Fill, who took the downhill crystal trophy last season by edging ahead of Svindal, who missed the last five races after crashing at Kitzbuehel, Austria.Austrias slow start is not really my problem, Fill said. They have good skiers. For me, its better that they dont go too fast.Marcel Hirscher, the five-time defending overall World Cup winner, will seek to restore Austrian pride in a giant slalom on Sunday.Val dIsere hosted a World Cup downhill for the first time in 10 seasons.The French resort took over a three-race weekend meeting which was cancelled at Beaver Creek, Colorado, because of lack of snow. Nike Air Huarache Black . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung on in the fourth and fifth. Nike Air Huarache Sale . The news was first reported on Gonzalezs Twitter account and confirmed by the Rockies. Gonzalez has a six-week window before position players have their first workout at spring training in Arizona. . Canada is now down to its 22-player limit, although but players wont be registered until Christmas Day. Changes could still be made as a result of a suspension or injury. Northamptonshire 355 for 6 (Keogh 134, Newton 65, Cobb 56) beat Durham 185 (Azharullah 5-43) by 170 runsScorecard Rob Keoghs maiden List A century led Northamptonshire to a thumping Royal London Cup victory over Durham by 170 runs at Wantage Road. Keoghs 134 helped the home side post 355 for 6 before five wickets for Azharullah saw Durham bowled out for just 185.Keoghs career-best helped Northants to their third-highest List A total, a score they defended with ease after two early Richard Gleeson wickets and three from Azharullah that took out the middle order. None of the Durham batsmen were able to get the visitors into the chase and they were bowled out in 35.3 overs - taking a significant blow to their net run rate.Victory for Northants revived their campaign after only one win from three completed matches previously. Keogh was the star, his 134 the joint-seventh highest one-day score for the county. He rebuilt the innings in a stand of 149 with Rob Newton for the fourth wicket and went to his second fifty of the competition in 57 balls with six fours.But the acceleration towards a century was most impressive - it took only 31 balls with six further fours and a six, lifted over midwicket during an over from Scott Borthwick that was taken for 18. A long-hop was also pulled to the midwicket fence before a full toss was planted over mid-on. Another four came via a drive wide of the same fielder.A square-driven boundary backward of point brought Keoghs maiden century and an enthusiastic ovation. Keogh found the fence three more times before being caught at deep midwicket. It was a special innings.He shared a record fourth-wickket stand for Northants against Durham with Newton, whose 65 in 46 balls was his third List A fifty and best effort of the competition this year. Nike Air Huarache Womens. He skipped down the pitch to gracefully strike Ryan Pringle into the sightscreen for six, one of four maximums that also included a hook over deep square leg.Newtons was the third half-century of the inning after Josh Cobbs 56 gave Northants a heathy start. He turned the second ball of the innings for four, added consecutive boundaries off Chris Rushworths and lifted Jame Harrison for a handsome six over deep square leg. His second fifty in this years competition was raised in 53 balls with five fours and a second six, flicked over long leg. But, trying to force Borthwick down the ground, Cobb presented a return catch to the bowler.Cobbs wicket saw the innings stagnate as 19 runs came from the next six overs and captain Alex Wakely chipped Pringle tamely to midwicket for 11. It left Northants 133 for 3 after 27 overs before Keogh and Newton began a fine recovery. Rory Kleinveldt finished the innings off perfectly with 32 in 13 balls, including six fours.Early wickets were always likely to kill Durhams chase and Gleeson found two: Mark Stoneman hurried trying to pull, caught at mid-on, and Borthwick caught behind trying to leave. Phil Mustard also chipped a catch to mid-on for 20 and at 44 for 3, Durham were struggling. Azharullahs 5 for 43 ripped out the middle order and Graeme White chipped in with two more victims as Durham were rolled over. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
