      Ligety Finishes 13th in Wengen SlalomTed Ligety (Park City, UT) started 13th, finished the first run in 13th and ended the Wengen slalom in the same spot to close out the 83rd Lauberhorn weekend in Switzerland. Ligety remained third in the overall Audi FIS Alpine World Cup standings but slightly closed the gap to Aksel Lund Svindal, who is in second. Germany's Felix Neureuther won by .21 over Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall and slalom leader Marcel Hirscher of Austria. Warm temps overnight created aggressive snow conditions and made for an incredibly tight race. The tour now heads to Austria for Hahnenkamm weekend in Kitzbuehel for the final weekend of racing before naming of the World Championships team.

      “Between the super combined and today, it was some of Ted's most promising slalom skiing of the year,” said Mike Day, technical head coach. “But he had some difficult sections and some bobbles that held him back from a bigger result. It was also really tight racing today. He was in a good position after first run and unfortunately couldn't move up. Ted is already on his way to Kitzbuehel and looking ahead.”

      Ted Ligety

      Beaver Creek, Colo. — Ted Ligety validated his opening win in Soelden five weeks ago with a huge 1.76 second victory over Austria's Marcel Hirscher in front of a roaring U.S. crowd at the Audi Birds of Prey giant slalom in Beaver Creek. Leading off the first run, Ligety took a .78 second lead and expanded it by nearly a second on the final run over live national television audience on NBC Sports Network. Ligety retained his lock on second in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup standings, carving into the lead of Norway's Aksel Lund Svindal who was sixth. Ligety has now won the opening two giant slalom races of the season by a massive 4.51 second margin.

      “It's great winning in front of the home crowd especially by that kind of margin," Ted Ligety said. "It's so nice to have so many friends and family here and on this slope. This hill has always treated me well and it's fun to ski here.”

      The men's tour now heads to Val d'Isere for a giant slalom and slalom next weekend.

      Ted Ligety

      Lake Louise, AB – Ted Ligety led four U.S. Ski Team athletes into the points Sunday finishing fourth in the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup super G in Lake Louise, missing the podium by a mere .01. Ligety strategically skipped the downhill race and spent the week leading up to Lake Louise training at the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain. The move translated into his best super G finish since taking second three years ago and vaulted him into second in the World Cup overall standings. Norway’s Aksel Lund Svindal swept the weekend to move into the World Cup lead. Andrew Weibrecht was 19th, Ryan Cochran-Siegle 20th and Tommy Biesemeyer 29th. Universal Sports will rebroadcast the race at 9 p.m. ET.

      "My super G has been going pretty well, but I wasn't expecting much after just flying in and now out," Ted Ligety said. "It sucks to miss the podium by one hundreth, but I'm pretty satisfied."

      SOELDEN, Austria - Three-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup giant slalom champion Ted Ligety, of Park City, Utah, served notice on the field with an historic 2.75-second margin of victory in the World Cup opener in Soelden for his 12th career win. Ligety mastered the controversial new GS skis, soft snow conditions, variable light and a raging blizzard to post one of the largest margins in the sport's history. He repeated as champion on the Rettenbach Glacier and marked his sixth-straight podium in Soelden. It was the biggest victory margin in World Cup GS in 34 years. While Ligety will remain in Europe to train for the World Cup slalom in Finland in two weeks, the speed team is congregating this week for the opening of the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain next Wednesday.

      “I'm psyched, Ted Ligety said. ”I didn't want to leave anything out there - I was hammering! I knew I was skiing well. I've been skiing fast in training. I've been working really hard on these new skis to get to the point I knew I was going to be among the best.“

      HIGHLIGHTS


      Ted Ligety powered through a raging blizzard to move up from second in the first run to win the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup opening giant slalom in Soelden by an historic 2.75 seconds.

      Ligety was .04 behind France's Thomas Fantara after the first run with Fantara unable to match Ligety, finishing fourth.

      After Ligety skied in near darkness in the first run, light came in and out on the course that was ragged with new snow alongside the track. The second run was run in a near whiteout with a raging blizzard.

      Ligety's 2.75-second margin was the seventh greatest of all time in GS but the first of that magnitude in 34 years when the legendary Swede Ingemark Stenmark posted two separate margins of around four seconds.

      Ligety will remain in the Team's training base at Soelden to train for the upcoming World Cup slalom in Finland while the speed skiers gather in Colorado for the opening of the U.S. Ski Team Speed Center at Copper Mountain next Wednesday.

      News: Women's 2015 World Cup Downhill Course Construction Begins

      Beaver Creek, Colorado – Construction began Monday, July 2, on the new 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships women's downhill course at Beaver Creek Mountain. The new track will feature similar terrain to the legendary Birds of Prey World Cup men's downhill and will host to women’s downhill, combined downhill and super G during the February 3-15, 2015 World Championships. 

      "The new women's downhill will be a showcase for athletes like Olympic champions Lindsey Vonn and Julia Mancuso, just as Birds of Prey has been for our U.S. Ski Team men like Bode Miller, Ted Ligety and Daron Rahlves," explained Bill Marolt, President and CEO, U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association.

      The course, skiers right of Birds of Prey, is scheduled to make its international debut December 14-15, 2013, as the women's World Cup travels to Beaver Creek for downhill and super G competitions. Both the men's and women's events will finish at the new Red Tail Stadium.

      In addition to the women's downhill, Beaver Creek will also construct a new track on Raven Ridge, located skier’s left of Birds of Prey, to host the women’s giant slalom and slalom competitions during the Championships. Crews will also begin the process of reconfiguring the current Red Tail Stadium finish arena, with work including re-grading the finish and moving the existing timing building to the east side of the finish area. All individual events will finish in the new stadium. 

      "Winning a super G on the men’s Birds of Prey track last winter was a huge highlight in my career," said Lindsey Vonn, Olympic downhill gold medalist and four-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall champion. "I have no doubt the new women’s downhill will be every bit as thrilling to race as the men’s hill and I fully intend to be competing for gold on my home snow in 2015."

      From Ted Ligety: I had already skied this line a couple times with no problems and the light had gotten too bad to film so I took one last run for fun with my GoPro on. I hit a piece of hard snow or rock while my sluff took out my tails simultaneously. Luckily I was just able to get onto my feet but not in balance before the cliff. 2nd big fall of the trip, first one I lost my other GoPro so no footage.

      Bode Miller At Val Gardena

      VAL GARDENA, Italy — Olympic champion and two-time Audi FIS Alpine World Cup overall winner Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) battled a shortened Val Gardena super G to finish second behind Swiss young gun Beat Feuz. It was Miller's third super G podium at the Italian resort after winning the 2006 race and taking second in 2007. Miller, who won the Audi Birds of Prey downhill two weeks ago, now sits fourth in the overall World Cup standings behind Ted Ligety (Park City, UT), who did not race. Olympic super G bronze medalist Andrew Weibrecht (Lake Placid, NY) was 20th as Wiley Maple (Aspen, CO) scored the first World Cup points of his career with 29th.

      "I made some mistakes on the course and there's not a ton too it," Miller said. "Also, when I went the visibility was pretty bad. If you get a little sun, it can make a huge difference on a course like this. On this particular course you always have to wait until the end because there's guys that can come from the way back and stomp it in."

      Bode Miller Wins World Cup Downhill At Beaver Creek

      BEAVER CREEK, Colorado — Bode Miller (Franconia, NH) took maximum risk, but skied a flawless run Dec. 2, to win the Audi Birds of Prey downhill in Beaver Creek, CO. It was the 33rd Audi FIS Alpine World Cup win of his career with a slim .04 margin over Swiss Beat Feuz. It was also a historic third win for Miller in the Audi Birds of Prey downhill and his first at Beaver Creek since 2006 when he and teammate Daron Rahlves (Sugar Bowl, CA) went one-two. Ted Ligety (Park City, UT) was the next American in 22nd as four Americans finished in the top-30 points. Hours later, Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) captured a downhill win in Lake Louise, ALB to create the first time two Americans had won downhills on the same day since Dec. 2004 when Miller won in Beaver Creek and Vonn (then Kildow) captured the first win of her career in Lake Louise.

      "I love to ski the way I did today. When I came across the finish line I was 100 percent satisfied, and it's great to have it coincide with a win," Bode Miller said. "It was tactics — being able to commit to taking that kind of risk. It's really demanding on this hill. You see how tight the course is. If you try to back off in any spot, a few tenths can slip away from you and I didn't back off anywhere. I had my foot on the gas the whole time."

      Clean Sweep For Vonn In Lake Louise, Mancuso Skis To Third

      LAKE LOUISE, Alberta — Lindsey Vonn (Vail, CO) completed a historic clean sweep Dec. 4, in Lake Louise, topping the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup super G podium with Julia Mancuso (Squaw Valley, CA) third. It was Vonn's 45th career World Cup win and 11th in Lake Louise. Following a season opening giant slalom victory in Soelden, Austria, a pair of downhill victories Friday and Saturday and then Sunday's super G win in Lake Louise, Vonn now has four victories in the five races she's started this season. It was the second podium finish for Mancuso, who was also third in the Nature Valley Aspen Winternational giant slalom last weekend. The women's alpine tour now moves to Beaver Creek, CO - site of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Championships — for a Dec. 7 super G. It will be the first women's World Cup race to be held in Beaver Creek.

      "To have three wins this weekend is more than I ever could have expected," Lindsey Vonn said. "I'm just so thankful to have the support of my teammates and everyone on the World Cup."

      "It was a lot of fun racing super G herein Lake Louise — it's completely different than downhill," Julia Mancuso said. "It's nice to have a good result and I can't wait to rip up the Beaver Creek hill."

      Ligety Narrowly Misses GS Win In Beaver Creek

      BEAVER CREEK, Colorado — First run leader Ted Ligety (Park City, Utah) couldn't quite hold on Dec. 4, finishing second in the Audi Birds of Prey giant slalom Sunday in Beaver Creek. With a .21 second lead over Austrian Marcel Hirscher, went back and forth in and out of the lead on his second run before falling .16 to the Austrian. Ligety, who held onto his Audi FIS World Cup lead, was the defending champion at Beaver Creek. The men are back on the same hill for a rescheduled World Cup GS today. 

      "Second place is obviously good, but I wanted to win more than anything. I feel like I had room to improve after my first run, I had more speed," Ted Ligety said. "I've got my family and friends here from Park City so it's even more motivation to put up some good results."

      Ted Ligety

      November 25, 2011

      — John Clary Davies

      On Sunday, Ted Ligety, the world’s top-ranked giant slalom skier, wrote a blog post titled, "Tyranny of FIS." 

      "FIS’s tyranny has gone on long enough," he writes. "It seems FIS is going out of their way to ruin the sport. FIS runs a dictatorship."

      Ligety’s 2,000-word post is in response to new International Ski Federation regulations requiring straighter and longer skis with less sidecut. Ligety believes using skis similar to those used in the 1980s and 1990s is taking the sport backwards. The federation thinks the new rule will increase safety. 

      "The new regulations proposed were decided to improve safety of the athletes, because the injury rate is way too high, and we had to try to improve the situation," said FIS Women’s Chief Race Director, Atle Skaardal. "Since the first year, we’ve had direct communication with the top athletes. The equipment was identified by the ski experts, talking to athletes and coaches."

      Ligety said he didn’t know about the new rule until it had already passed. He said 41 of the top 50 giant slalom racers have signed a petition decrying the new regulations.

      "Him saying that top athletes and coaches in it from the beginning is a total lie," said Ligety when asked about Skaardal’s claim. "Being that it mostly affects giant slalom, and I’ve won three of the last four giant slalom titles, you would think that I would know. And also, since basically every single giant slalom skier is against it, you would venture to guess that they didn’t know about the changes to begin with as well."

      Ted Ligety

      Ligety said he is taking steps to create a union so ski racers have a voice.  

      "Really to this point, they’ve had no reason to listen to athletes because they run a system that has never listed to athletes before," Ligety said. "They don’t like the idea of having input from outside themselves. The people that run FIS are pretty detached from the actual athletics side of it, so I guess they don’t understand anymore what it’s like to be an athlete, and what the true issues are because all the athletes want safety."

      The FIS used two studies as the basis for their regulations. Data collected through the University of Oslo tracked the number of serious injuries in each discipline from 2006 to 2011. The numbers show a slight increase in the 2010-'11 season — from about 30 injuries to 40 injuries — but are otherwise stable. A second study, through the University of Salzburg, concludes from 63 interviews of athletes and coaches, that the top risk factor for racers was "System ski, binding, plate, boot," slightly ahead of "Changing snow conditions." Another project through the University of Salzburg used four Europa Cup athletes to measure force on 30-meter, 35-meter and 40-meter turning radius skis, for which the group found no statistical difference. 

      Ligety said the studies' conclusions aren’t significant enough for such dramatic initiatives. He thinks more athletes will be injured from using skis that they’ve never skied before. He emphasized that athletes have the most at stake here.

      "As athletes we have the greatest incentive to be safe and healthy," Ligety wrote on his blog. "We all know how short our careers can be and very few of us are compensated for the risks we take. Therefore, we currently and in the future choose equipment that not only allows us the ability to be fast but to make it to the finish line safely. I have on many occasions chosen skis that were slower but had better control instead of faster and uncontrollable skis."

      Ligety said there’s a conflict of interest with the SRS, the ski suppliers group. The president is the head of Atomic and the vice president is the head of Salomon. These are the only two companies that support the rule changes. Ligety said there is talk of the other ski companies, like Head, Fischer and Rossignol/Dynastar, not making skis that accommodate the new regulations. 

      "All the other ski companies have talked that they’re in support of the athletes in this regard," Ligety said.
