KOENIGSSEE, Germany (AP) — Tobias Wendl and Tobias Arlt led a German 1-2 finish Saturday to maintain a perfect start to the season with their second luge World Cup win.

Wendl and Arlt timed 1 minute, 40.977 seconds over two heats to beat compatriots Toni Eggert and Sascha Benecken by 0.415 seconds — a repeat result from the opening men's doubles race of the season at Igls, Austria.

It was Wendl and Arlt's 15th World Cup victory overall.

Defending World Cup champions, brothers Andreas and Wolfgang Linger, were third, 0.949 behind the winners.

The women's race was scheduled for later Saturday.
