VAL GARDENA, Italy — Olympic champion and two-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall winner Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) battled a shortened Val Gardena super G to finish second behind Swiss young gun Beat Feuz. It was Miller's third super G podium at the Italian resort after winning the 2006 race and taking second in 2007. Miller, who won the Audi Birds of Prey downhill two weeks ago, now sits fourth in the overall World Cup standings behind Ted Ligety (Park City, UT), who did not race. Olympic super G bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY) was 20th as Wiley Maple (Aspen, CO) scored the first World Cup points of his career with 29th.
"I made some mistakes on the course and there's not a ton too it," Miller said. "Also, when I went the visibility was pretty bad. If you get a little sun, it can make a huge difference on a course like this. On this particular course you always have to wait until the end because there's guys that can come from the way back and stomp it in."
