Ryding's pace at the season-opener was nevertheless encouraging and he is aiming to compete in 11 more World Cup races this season as well as the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics in February.Ryding's error allowed Germany's Felix Neureuther to take his 13th World Cup win with an overall time of one minute 42.83 seconds.Norway's Henrik Kristoffersen took second place from Mattias Hargin of Sweden.World champion Marcel Hirscher was 17th on his return from injury after fracturing his ankle during training in August.
