Austria's Reinfried Herbst secured the overall World Cup slalom title, after finishing ninth in the final event in Garmisch-Partenkirchen (Germany) on Saturday.

AFP - Germany's Felix Neureuther won the men's slalom at the World Cup finals on Saturday with Austria's Manfred Pranger second and Sweden's Andre Myhrer third.
   
Austria's Reinfried Herbst finished ninth to claim the overall World Cup slalom title after Switzerland's Carlo Janka had won the men's overall 2010 World Cup title on Friday with victory in the men's giant slalom.
   
Neureuther's winning time over the slalom's two legs was 1min 43.63sec with Pranger second at 0.29sec and Myhrer third at 0.35sec.
   
There was heart-break for France's Julien Lizeroux who finished fourth at 0.45sec and just missed out on claiming the overall slalom title by just 22 points.
   
Herbst finishes the season as slalom champion with 534 points compared to Lizeroux's 512 with Switzerland's Silvan Zubriggen third on 365 having finished seventh here at 1.03sec back.
