New Hampshire’s Bode Miller now is the most successful American skier ever with 28 World Cup wins, overtaking Phil Mahre.
Miller won the combined title yesterday for the slalom and Saturday’s downhill at the Hahnenkamm World Cup races in Austria.
Earlier this week, he accused organizers of making the famous Streif downhill course much bumpier and dangerous than it already was. He also criticized organizers for disrespecting the 68-year-old history of the event by changing the slalom course.
But the win gave Miller something to cheer about. He says it is a nice record, something a kid dreams about having. He says it was his goal to break the record.
