22:34 And Palander steals it away from Schloppy in the final seconds, and is into second place as Bode Miller looks to surpass the man he overcame yesteray, Daron Rahlves.....

22:36 And the Americans took 1st, 2nd and 4th place, with Kalle Palander in third. Askel Lund Svindal should maintain his World Cup lead with a 5th place finish, as the Austrian's had a disappointing day, with Benni Raich failing to even finish the first run, and Hermann Maier choking late in the second.

SWEET!!! Schloppy was only 1 hundredth from making it an all US podium (actually Pallender would've been there too as a tie for 3rd).

And Lindsey Kidlow won the DH at Lake Louise. Great day for the USA.

It's so nice to see the boys (and girls) back into form and where they left off last year. I'm confident yet still keeping my fingers crossed that they (all) can continue this good fast streak after this weekend when they head back over the "pond".

In the mean time...Cheers to the US SKI TEAM. It's always nice to be on home soil.

American double act by Eurosport - 03/12/2005 Jeremy Stahl

Bode Miller and Daron Rahlves finished first and second at Beaver Creek for the second straight night as Miller won the Giant Slalom in a combined time of two minutes 34.56 seconds. Finland's Kalle Palander took third as Rahlves moves to the top of the World Cup standings with Miller second.

While it was Rahlves who took the downhill in a fog-delayed race on Friday, Miller ran the show on Saturday's giant slalom taking his first win of the World Cup season 0.49 seconds ahead of Rahlves.

Rahlves now leads the World Cup standings with 285 points, however, with Miller right behind with 282.

Askel Lund Svindal, the previous No. 1, dropped to third in the World Cup race, finishing fifth in the Beaver Creek GS.

Miller finished second to Hermann Maier in the only other giant slalom of the season two months ago at Soelden, but Miller has supplanted Maier in the giant slalom standings with the Beaver Creek win.

Maier finished 8th at Beaver Creek, as the race was the first time this World Cup season that an Austrian failed to make it onto the podium.

In a disappointing showing for the Austrians, Benjamin Raich failed to even qualify in the first run.

Team domination

Miller led a dominanant American team before the home-crowd in Colorado, which in addition to Rahlves' podium finish, included Erik Schlopy who finished fourth place despite a bandaged hand and despite skiing the final leg of the first race without one of his poles after hitting a gate.

As all racers had to contend with another day of steady snow and poor visibility, Miller recovered beautifully from an early stumble in his second run to take the win.

"It's a great overall experience and rush to try to get yourself in and out of those kinds of situations," said the local favourite.

"I was out of the course a couple of times and was very close to getting out of the course a couple more times.

"With the kind of fatigue I was dealing with, that's the kind of skiing I love to do. Sometimes you don't win when you do that but that was really a winning run for me.

"I think my form is good, my fitness is good, even if my knee is a little bit sore from yesterday," added Miller.

Palander, the 1999 World Champion, also struggled in his final run, with a crucial error on the fourth gate from the finish.

"It's always difficult to beat the U.S. guys here," said the Finn.

"Especially today, when they had three of the top four skiers. It was nice to be the first European guy anyway."
