Veterans lead way in first training run at Kitzbuehel

To the surprise of no one it was all veterans leading the way during the first training run today (Jan. 17) ahead of Kitzbuehel's downhill.

Other top North American results included Erik Guay in 13th and Travis Ganong 22nd. Wiley Maple crashed into the nets below the Steilhang, but team officials report he was uninjured. He was the lone skier to be listed as did not finish. Three, including Canada's Louis-Pierre Helie, declined to start and three were disqualified.

Bode’s diary: Ski racing is risky business

By Bode Miller

I saw the Albrecht training crash from a TV at the top of the Hahnenkamm. It was pretty aggressive. It’s scary to see someone go down right in front of you, but I’m pretty good at putting it out of my head and not dwelling on it. If you go out there and give 100 percent on some of these courses, the chances of hurting yourself are really really high. A lot of racers went down in the actual race too.

Our young racers deserve support
The finish line might as well have been a million miles away, so slim were her chances of crossing it. She’d just ripped through a fast flush and was two gates away from the electronic beam when, as sometimes happens when you give it your all, she got wide of the next gate, body going one way, skis the other and only a miracle could keep her from falling.
