After his dramatic victory on Thursday, the Austrian defending champion recorded a more comfortable win second time around.
Those on their Bormio ski holiday
were denied the chance to see Italian Peter Fill win on home territory, as he finished in second place, 0.22 seconds behind the imperious Walchhofer.
Walchhofer, who won in one minute and 51.82 seconds, was joined on the podium by fellow Austrian Mario Scheiber, also showing consistency with his second third placed finish in a row.
After the race, Walchhofer commented: "This is a very special win for me because apparently I have become the first man to win two double downhills in his career.
"If someone had told me that coming here I would have said they were just crazy."
