Posted By: The Ski Channel on March 3, 2014 12:49 pm

Olympic super G silver medalist Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY) needed a solid Audi FIS Alpine World Cup result Sunday and he got one, finishing a World Cup career-best seventh in the last super G before the World Cup Finals. The result locked a start in the discipline at the March 13 race in Lenzerheide, Switzerland, where only the top 25 athletes in each discipline can start. Sochi super G bronze medalist Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) finished 12th, behind Olympic champion Kjetil Jansrud of Norway, who won his second race in three days. The race will air at 1 p.m. ET on Universal Sports Network.
