MAP Birds of Prey Downhill

American skiier Bode Miller flies over the Red Tail jump as he nears the finish at the Visa Birds of Prey World Cup Downhill Friday December 2, 2005 at Beaver Creek Ski Resort. Miller finished second in the downhill with a time of 1:13.64. American skiiers Daron Rahlves (first) and Bode Miller (second) took the top two podium spots in a downhill that was stopped numerous times because of poor visibility on the upper part of the course. In 2005, he became the first American in 22 years to win the overall alpine skiing World Cup title, since Phil Mahre and Tamara McKinney in 1983. Earlier during his championship season, with a victory on November 28, 2004, he became only the fifth man to win World Cup races in all five disciplines: slalom, giant slalom, Super-G, downhill, and combined. With 30 World Cup victories, he is the most successful American alpine skier ever. He is also a four-time World Champion in four different disciplines and has a pair of silver medals from the 2002 Winter Olympics. On May 12, 2007, Miller announced that he would be leaving the U.S. Ski Team. However, he still competes for the USA in international competitions..(MARC PISCOTTY/ © 2006)
