SOLDIER HOLLOW, Utah (AP) -- World champion Todd Lodwick of Steamboat Springs, Colo., swept his way through a blizzard Sunday to win his second straight Nordic Combined Continental Cup race.
Austrian Tomaz Druml was second and Germany's Steffen Tepel third, matching the podium finish from Saturday's opening race.
Visibility was limited by the blizzard conditions on Wasatch Mountain for Sunday's cross country leg.
Lodwick skipped the first two weekends of the World Cup to race at Soldier Hollow, where he came out of retirement a year ago and began the best season of his career. He leaves Monday for Europe and will rejoin the World Cup circuit next weekend in Austria.
