Victory marks career win No. 12, ninth in DH

WENGEN, Switzerland (Jan. 14) - Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA), looking to give his wife a special gift for her birthday, took her suggestion Saturday, nailed the bottom of the longest World Cup downhill and collected his ninth World Cup DH victory and third of the season. He won the 76th running of the fabled Lauberhorn DH by four-tenths of a second.

OLN will broadcast Lauberhorn coverage Sunday at 5 p.m. ET as part of its 10 Weeks to Torino programming leading to the Olympics in Italy next month.

Sullivan’s 16th was a gold medal for him
Sullivan, a 2002 Olympian, tore knee ligaments in a race early in the 2004 season and then reinjured his knee a year ago. This is his first season back and his 16th place “was a showing that he’s making a move back. He’s not back,” Mcichol said, “but he’s definitely popped to the surface...and that was pretty cool to see.”

Earlier this season, Rahlves won the VISA Birds of Prey downhill at Beaver Creek, Colo., and ended the old year with a win in Bormio, Italy. He is the first American to win in Wengen since Kyle Rasmussen in 1995. The first U.S. men's World Cup downhill win also came in Wengen when Bill Johnson - battling to stay on-course - won the 1984 Lauberhorn, then went on to take Olympic gold a couple of weeks later in snowy Sarajevo, then-Yugoslavia.

The Lauberhorn festivities conclude Sunday with a slalom before the men move to Kitzbuehel, Austria, for Hahnenkamm Weekend. The U.S. Alpine Ski Team will be announced Jan. 25. following the annual night slalom Jan. 24 in Schladming, Austria.

“I’ve been so close to getting a World Cup spot before, so I am really excited,” said Deibold, who will be making his first World Cup start at Lake Placid. “I was really impressed with the course. It had good rollers, tight turns, and a good hip.”

Deibold, 19, will be participating in the Winter X Games Jan. 28-31 in Aspen.

BAD KLEINKIRCHHEIM, Austria (Jan. 13) - World Cup downhill leader Lindsey Kildow (Vail, CO) was ninth Friday in a downhill and held onto her lead in the standings with Kirsten Clark (Raymond, ME) 11th as Sweden’s Anja Paerson won the second DH of her glittering career.
OLN televises World Cup race coverage Sunday at 5 p.m. ET (with a rebroadcast Tuesday at 5 p.m. ET) as part of its ongoing 10 Weeks to Torino pre-Olympic programming.
Paerson’s winning time was 1:37.70 with Michaela Dorfmeister second in 1:37.74 to climb closer to Kildow in the points. Kildow, who has won two downhills this winter, finishws in 1:38.59 and leads the downhill points with 274 while Dorfmeister has 252. Clark, the only other American to break into the top 30, had a time of 1:38.77.
“Lindsey didn’t ski well; she just didn’t ski that well in a couple of turns. She cleans it up for [Saturday’s DH] and she’ll be right in there again,” said DH/SG Head Coach Alex Hoedlmoser. “And Kirsten skied pretty well. This is a very difficult course - there’s a top chute, the Franz Klammer Chute, that leads into a flat and it’s almost like cross country at that point...30 seconds, or more, and if you get behind, you don’t have a chance because you can’t make up the time after that.
“And then there’s a very critical turn from the flat and...well, it’s tough.”
The women’s run another DH Saturday, then have a super G Sunday before a downhill, super G and one-day super combined Jan. 20-22 in St. Moritz, Switzerland. The alpine Olympic Team will be named Jan. 25.
