MOSCOW (AP) -- Austria's Marcel Hirscher and Germany's Lena Duerr of Germany won World Cup parallel slaloms Tuesday on a giant ramp in downtown Moscow.

Hirscher, the World Cup overall and slalom leader, edged Andre Myhrer of Sweden by 0.16 seconds in the final men's run for his fifth victory this season. Ivica Kostelic of Croatia was third.

Duerr beat Veronica Velez Zuzulova for her first victory this season. Third place went to World Cup slalom leader Mikaela Shiffrin of the United States.

Women's overall leader Tina Maze of Slovenia, who won Sunday's slalom in Maribor, was eliminated in the quarterfinals.

The winners earned 100 points each in the slalom and overall standings.

It was the second city event this season, after Munich on Jan. 1.
