GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany - Tina Maze set the fastest time Thursday in the second training run for a women's World Cup downhill, one of three races being held this week in the German resort.

Maze, who has already clinched the overall World Cup title, covered the Kandahar course in 1 minute, 40.42 seconds, 0.26 seconds ahead of Daniela Merighetti of Italy. Regina Sterz of Austria was third, 0.29 behind.

Maze, who has 1,844 points overall, hopes to become the first skier to top 2,000 in a season.

Maria Hoefl-Riesch was seventh, ahead of Julia Mancuso of the United States.

Racing starts Friday with a super-G that replaces a race that was called off in Val d'Isere, France, earlier this season due to bad weather. The downhill follows on Saturday with another super-G on Sunday.
