Miller on top in France

January 27th, 2008

Bode Miller takes the Super Combination win in France on the weekend of January 26th. It took the HEAD racer 2:34.58 in the Slalom and Downhill to obtain his second Super Combination victory of the season. After this second victory, the American Miller is now a lot closer to obtaining the coveted Crystal Ball.

Best time in the Downhill
In the Downhill, Bode Miller was able to clock a lighting fast time that set the foundation for the building of his fourth season victory. The American's time in the Slalom of 1:41.70 was thirty two hundredths of a second faster than his HEAD colleague Didier Cuche's, who in turn finished 27th after the less-favored Slalom.

Miller the overall standings leader
With a solid run in the Slalom, the thirty year old Miller was able to secure the victory and add some more points to his card. Previously, the HEAD racer had been triumphant in Kitzb├╝hel, Austria, which made him the man to beat in France. But with his all around ability Miller showed why he is on top.
The next and final Super Combination of this season will be held at Val d'Isere in France on the 2nd and 3rd of February. With the powerful and versatile Bode Miller currently leading all competitors with 310 points, the Crystal Ball is now certainly within his grasp. In addition, Miller has taken over the lead in the overall World Cup ranking as well.
