Bode Miller gave us an American win for the Beaver Creek Birds of Prey course in the World Cup downhill competition this week. He missed a gate in the Super-Combined event on Thursday after a course worker slipped and fell onto the course, but he dominated the downhill with a time of 1:46.15. It is his first World Cup win in 2 years, and the third year in a row that an American won this particular event. Peter Fill of Italy is leading the World Cup after 5 (of 38) races with 184 points. Bode Miller is 8th with 120 points.
