Canada's Guay leads downhill training, Miller 16th
VAL GARDENA, Italy -- Erik Guay of Canada led World Cup downhill training on Thursday, while Bode Miller was 16th.
Guay was 0.22 seconds ahead of overall leader Aksel Lund Svindal of Norway in second, and 0.72 seconds in front of Manuel Osborne-Paradis of Canada in third after their runs on the Saslong course.
Guay thought he won last year until a drastic weather change helped later starters. American Steven Nyman earned his second Saslong victory, and Rok Perko of Slovenia claimed second, relegating Guay to third.
On Thursday, Nyman was 10th in training and Miller was the next fastest American.
A super-G is scheduled for Friday, followed by the downhill on Saturday. The circuit moves to nearby Alta Badia for a giant slalom on Sunday.
