On the runup to this weekend's always-thrilling Hahnenkamm races in Kitzbuhel, Austria—and just a few weeks before the 2010 Olympics—Bode Miller has received a couple of well-desrved boosts. For starters, of course, he took his first World Cup win in Wengen, Switzerland, last weekend—his first in close to two years.
Rahlves helped with ski clinics for the U.S. Ski Team and Spyder, skiing indoors
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates - Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA), the reigning X Games ski cross champion, has won the fabled Hahnenkamm in Kitzbuehel, Austria, as well as the World Championship super G. But, while doing ski clinics for U.S. Ski Team and personal sponsor Spyder at an indoor ski facility in Dubai recently, he had to answer a question he had never thought about before: "Hey, Daron, what's it like to ski outdoors?"
Rahlves, the 2001 World Champion, spent a few days in Dubai doing clinics with kids and adults in the world's largest indoor ski facility.
Who will win this weekend? Bode Miller, who's now an independent? The powerful Austrians? Svindal, the reigning overall World Cup champion? Or one of the young guns of the U.S. Team? Watch each race LIVE all season at wcsn.com.
