BEAVER CREEK ” Daron Rahlves edged Bode Miller in a downhill Friday on the same mountain that last year they accomplished the first 1-2 American finish in a World Cup race since 1984.

In 2004, though, it was Miller who got the better of Rahlves.

This time, Rahlves covered the Birds of Prey course ” shortened because of wind and fog ” in 1 minute, 13.37 seconds.



Two skiers later, Miller came down in 1:13.64, going through the top faster than his teammate before losing ground in the latter stages.

Hans Grugger of Austria was third in 1:13.71.
