Bode Miller has won the first of the World Cup races in Wengen on Friday 15 January, taking the super-combined title.

The win was Miller’s first victory since 2008 and puts him back on form for Vancouver. Miller completed an impressive downhill run following his slalom race, finishing with a combined time of 35.96 minutes – just ahead of nearest rival Carlo Janka of Switzerland.

A satisfied Miller was congratulated by his fellow podium winners: two of the top Swiss racers, Janka and Zubriggan. Bode Miller has been out of action for much of the season so far, with injury.

The action will continue in Wengen on Saturday, when all eyes will be on the thrills and spills of the Lauberhorn downhill. Can Didier Defago keep his title? Or will the run be a winner for Swiss rival Cuche?
