Bode Miller currently in second in Lake Louise World Cup downhill training

Downhill training is underway in Lake Louise, Canada, in preparation for tomorrow’s opening Audi FIS World Cup downhill. About half the men have skied, and ‘new’ U.S. Ski Team member Bode Miller is sitting in second place. Most of the big guns have gone, already, so it’s unlikely that Miller’s position will change.

Austrian Michael Walchhofer is sitting in first, .59 seconds ahead of Miller. Erik Fisher is the next top America, sitting in 11th, a prime spot. U.S. Ski Team star Scott Macartney has yet to ski, along with some others who could change the top fifteen placings.

Today’s runs on the Winter Start course are only official ‘training’ runs, and won’t count toward World Cup points.
