WENGEN, Switzerland – Christof Innerhofer of Italy won the classic Lauberhorn downhill on Saturday, and Johan Clarey of France set a World Cup speed record of 100.6 mph. Innerhofer timed 2 minutes, 29.82 seconds down the 2.74-mile course, the longest on the World Cup program. “For me, it’s amazing winning at Wengen. It cannot be better,” said Innerhofer, who won the downhill in November at Beaver Creek. Klaus Kroell of Austria was second, 0.30 seconds behind, while teammate Hannes Reichelt was 0.76 back in third. Clarey, who placed fifth, clocked the fastest speed recorded in competition in the 46-year history of the World Cup. He did it at the Hanneggschuss straight two minutes into his run.
