RAMSAU, Austria — Magnus Moan recaptured the lead in the World Cup standings after winning a nordic combined sprint Sunday.
    The 23-year-old Norwegian won the 7.5-kilometer sprint race in 16 minutes, 53.3 seconds, beating Jason Lamy Chappuis of France by 0.7 seconds. Ronny Ackermann of Germany finished third, 1.2 seconds behind Moan. American Bill Demong was 16th, leapfrogging 10 places after clocking the second-fastest sprint time following a disappointing jumping performance of 87.5 meters.
    Demong, who started the six-lap race 1:42 back of jumping leader Christoph Bieler of Austria, finished 53 seconds behind Moan. Johnny Spillane was 28th.
    "I'm happy with my race … but I still need to get a couple of meters in my jumping," Demong said, adding he planned to train extensively at Lake Placid when he comes home for the holidays. "I want to get as many jumps on snow as I can, so I'll be there every day, if I can."
    Demong said the lack of hills on the course "means not too many people were moving up, so you really had to be hauling. No hills reduced the chance of putting some time on the other guys."|
    Meanwhile, Moan, who lost his World Cup lead Saturday to Bieler, was eighth after jumping 94.0 meters earlier Sunday. Bieler won that discipline with a jump of 98.5 meters.
    Moan has 329 points, leading Bieler by 13 points. Anssi Koivuranta of Finland is third with 279.
    After spending the holidays at home, Spillane and Demong will return for the German Grand Prix, the annual three-meet World Cup series, which opens Dec. 30 in Oberhof, Germany.
