Kjetil Jansrud of Norway joined the pantheon of greats to win the men's World Cup downhill at Kitzbühel on Saturday.
Bad visibility payed havoc with the 75th running of the World Cup's most prestigious event, with the 3.3 kilometre course truncated and the start delayed.
 Jansrud put those distractions aside to see off Italy's Dominik Paris and Guillermo Fayed of France.
 
Jansrud gave Norway its first downhill victory in Kitzbühel since Lasse Kjus (in additional races in 2004 and 1999) and Atle Skaardal in 1990.
 He joins a roll of honour on the hill that includes multiple winners Didier Cuche and Franz Klammer.
