BORMIO, Italy -- Klaus Kroell of Austria was fastest in the second training session Friday for the World Cup downhill on the Stelvio course, while several contenders sat out with various problems.

Kroell clocked 1 minute, 56.13 seconds on a course that was slightly shortened due to weather worries.

Italians Christof Innerhofer, the 2008 winner, and Dominik Paris were second and third -- matching their finishes from the opening training Thursday.

Thursday's leader Adrien Theaux of France was fast on top, then cruised the rest of the way and placed last, 8.94 seconds back in 54th.

Overall World Cup leader Aksel Lund Svindal sat out with a sore throat and world champion Erik Guay rested with a fever. The 2009-10 overall winner Carlo Janka is skipping the race on Saturday to train.
