Madonna diCampiglio, Italy, Dec. 10, 2001 -- Bode Miller of Franconia, NH made it two World Cup victories in less than 36 hours Monday night when he captured a slalom under the lights by more than a half-second. It was the first time an American had won back-to-back technical races (slalom/GS) since Phil Mahre won three consecutive giant slaloms in March 1983.

Miller, whose GS victory Sunday in Val d'Isere, France, was the first GS win by an American man since Mahre at Furano in 1983, finished with a two-run slalom time of 1:36.01. Giorgio Rocca of Italy was second in 1:36.53 with Tom Stiansen of Norway third in 1:36.92.

Two other U.S. skiers scored points. Casey Puckett of Aspen, CO was 15th in 1:38.05 and Erik Schlopy of Park City, UT was 24th in 1:38.64.

As he closed-in on his third straight World Cup overall title in 1983, Mahre won a GS at Aspen, Colo., on March 7, another GS the next day in Vail and a GS March 19 in Furano, Japan. The last U.S. man to win back-to-back races was Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA), who captured two downhills in 24 hours in March 2000 in Kvitfjell, Norway, north of Lillehammer.
