Tommy Moe continued a downhill fight against the temptations of success when he finished tied for third in Wednesday's downhill at the World Cup Finals. It was the third consecutive top-three finish for Moe after he placed 55th and 20th at Aspen in the first two races after his Olympic downhill victory.
