Kranjska Gora, Slovenia (AP)--Christian Mayer took advantage of fellow Austrian Hermann Maier's fall today and got his second victory this season in a World Cup giant slalom ski race.

Mayer won by .64 seconds over Joel Chenal of France. Maier fell on the bottom part of the steep Podkoren course, three gates before the finish of the first run.

Although he lost some ground, Maier retained his big leads in the overall World Cup and giant slalom standings. His closest challenger in overall, Kjetil-Andre Aamodt of Norway, finished ninth in the race.

Michael von Gruenigen of Switzerland, who could have knocked Maier off the top of the giant slalom standings with a victory, wound up eighth.

Mayer led by .21 seconds after finishing the first run in 1 minute, 6.33 seconds. The 28-year-old skier had a steady, virtually error-free, second run to a clocking of 2:11.17 for his fifth career victory. All are in giant slaloms.

Chenal, the winner of one giant slalom this season, finished in 2:11.81. Marco Buechel of Liechtenstein was third in 2:12.16.
