Miller captured his 32nd World Cup victory in Wengen last week but has never won the Kitzbuehel downhill race. His best result was second in 2008.

Last year’s winner Didier Defago of Switzerland trailed Miller by 1.62 seconds in 17th place.
The 70th edition of the Hahnenkamm event starts with a super-G on Friday, followed by the downhill Saturday and a slalom Sunday.
