Beaver Creek, CO, Nov. 30, 2000--The second day of men's downhill training for the Ernst & Young Birds of Prey World Cup was canceled Thursday due to high winds and poor visibility on the course.

Winds on the hill were blowing at a steady 50 mph with gusts up to 60 mph in the morning. Light fog also envelopedthe start area and top section of the Birds of Prey course, making it dangerous for competitors to ski. The Coloradosky was also overcast during the morning, providing for a lot of flat light on the hill.

The missed run will not be made up. The men have one final training run Friday at 12:15 p.m. MST.

In the opening day of training Wednesday, Austrian powerhouse Hermann Maier had the fastest time of the day on thedifficult course (1:42.35). He has won six races on Birds of Prey, including three last season.

Chad Fleischer (Vail, CO) was the top American finisher in eighth with a time of 1:43.50. Fleischer is coming off afifth place downhill finish last weekend in Lake Louise, Alberta.

The Ernst & Young Birds of Prey World Cup races begin Saturday with a downhill (12:15 MST) and conclude Sundaywith a super G (12:15 MST).
