BEAVER CREEK, Colorado — For a split second, Bode Miller was flying sideways, his body parallel to the ground, his hand on the snow and his skis airborne. A split second later, his skis dug in, he sped around the gate, and he was again attacking the course.

It was vintage Miller — skiing the course with abandon and somehow recovering from near disasters.

Miller crossed the finish line in 1 minute, 43.94 seconds, good enough for fourth place in the downhill Saturday on the Birds of Prey course on Beaver Creek Mountain.

Bode back to skiing his way. I think he has been very tentative for the first couple of races and way off the pace. I did chuckle at his face plant in the super combined slalom though. :lol:

Cuche is looking good and would be my bet for the GS later. What about bets on Janke doing the triple??

In HD I hope? quite simply extraordinary skiing from Bode, I get the impression he's winding himself up for an assault on the Olympics
I would have got away with it if it wasn't for those pesky kids!

I watched that, and must admit that i did think that was the end of the race there! Not only that he almost fell on the flat early as well!

Should have had a tenner on Janke for the triple.
