Kitzbuehel, Austria Jan. 18,2002 (AP)--After 12 years on the World Cup circuit, overall leader Stephan Eberharter of Austria finally posted a victory on the circuit's most notorious slope Friday, winning a men's super-G on the Streif.

Eberharter, who will race in the more prestigious downhill Saturday, charged down the course in 1 minute, 18.91 seconds for his second win in as many super-G races.

Italy's Alessandro Fattori, who has a history of solid results in Kitzbuehel, placed second in 1:19.32 for his best career finish in the discipline.

Swiss veteran Didier Cuche, who triumphed here in a downhill in 1998, was third in 1:19.78.

American super-G world champion Daron Rahlves narrowly missed the podium again this year, crossing fourth in 1:19.85.

``It was a lot harder than I thought,'' said Rahlves, who finished fourth in last year's super-G and third in the downhill. ``My line wasn't as clean as it should have been but I had to be smart.

``I really feel on top of it and I'm really looking forward to coming down the Streif in tomorrow's downhill. Bring it on.''
