LENZERHEIDE, Switzerland (AP)--Michael Walchhofer won the World Cup downhill title Thursday after finishing fourth in the season's final race, while American Bode Miller stretched his lead for the overall title with a second-place showing.

Norway's Lasse Kjus won in 1 minute, 24.09 seconds for his first World Cup downhill victory in over a year. Miller, who needed to win the race to have any chance at the downhill season title, was 0.14 behind. Fritz Strobl of Austria was third in 1:24.27.

Miller picked up 80 valuable points to extend his lead over Austrian Benjamin Raich to 128 points in the chase for the overall title. Raich finished 11th to earn 24 points. Miller has 1,428 points, and Raich has 1,320. Both men will compete in the remaining three races: super giant slalom, giant slalom and slalom.

Walchhofer, skiing with a sore knee, took the downhill title 731 points. Miller finished with 618.
