At the first of three speed disciplines scheduled for the weekend at Kvitfjell in Norway, HEAD's American star Bode Miller slashed his way through the Downhill course to take second place and with this, was truely the greater victor of the day.
Carving on Razorblades
In the first of Bode Millers World Cup Downhill runs at the Norwegian Kvitfjell, the extraordinary talent that the World Cup community has become accustomed to seeing from the American World Cup Overall points leader this season, was again observed on Friday. Miller performed sharply on his HEAD skis as he made the last of his finely razor carved turns to secure the second best total time of the day at 1:45.83.
Now, a 125 point lead in the Overall Rankings
With the 80 points from this second place finish, Miller has built a 125 point lead in the Overall World Cup Standings, and has also taken a large stride in the direction of World Cup Overall Champion. With two more Downhill races in this 2008 season, the Downhill title is currently in HEAD's hands. The Crystal Globe is now in Didier Cuches hands after his sixth place finish in today's Downhill in Norway. Cuche holds a 25 point lead over Miller in the Downhill rankings.
