Eight U.S. skiers to start Thursday
BEAVER CREEK, Colo. (Nov. 29) - T.J. Lanning (Park City, UT) and former Junior World Championships downhill bronze medalist Erik Fisher (Sandpoint, ID) clinched start spots Wednesday in a training run before this week's World Cup downhill at the VISA Birds of Prey races.
The VISA races will include four days of top-level competition, starting Thursday with a super combined event followed by Friday's DH. Saturday it's giant slalom with slalom completing the weekend on Sunday. WCSN.com will provide streaming coverage from the races; Thursday, the downhill run will be available at 12:45 p.m. ET with the slalom at 4:15 p.m. ET. Live timing is available via http://livetiming.usskiteam.com.
A snowstorm, which began Monday, wiped out the first official training run Tuesday and course workers cleared about two feet of snow so racers could get a training run Wednesday. The U.S. Ski Team used the run to determine the last two starting slots for Friday's scheduled DH.
