SCHLADMING, Austria (AP) - Romed Baumann of Austria took the lead after the downhill leg of the super-combined at the world championships on Monday, and American rival Ted Ligety was the best positioned of the technical specialists in sixth.

Baumann, who has won two World Cup super-combined races, clocked 2 minutes, 1.38 seconds down the icy Planai course, which was harder than in Saturday's traditional downhill after two more days of temperatures far below freezing.

Two-time defending champion Aksel Lund Svindal, the Norwegian who won Saturday's downhill, was second, 0.14 behind. Christof Innerhofer of Italy, the defending silver medalist, was third, 0.38 behind.

Ligety was 0.72 behind Baumann. Also, technical specialist Ivica Kostelic was 10th, 1.37 behind, and Benjamin Raich was 12th, 1.52 behind.

The slalom leg is later Monday.
