Bode Miller set for Are spot

Bode Miller set for Are spot American skier Bode Miller ended a year-long wait without a World Cup finish at Schladming - although a mistake-ridden run meant he finished last.

Anyone on a Schladming ski holiday would have seen the 2005 overall World Cup champion complete a slalom for the first time since last January.

But the 29-year-old finished more than nine seconds behind the race winner, Benjamin Raich.

Despite finishing at the back of the field, Miller hopes that his performance in Schladming will be enough to earn him a place on the US team for the imminent World Championships in Are, Sweden.

Those on an Are ski holiday will be able to see if Miller achieves one of his burning ambitions to become the first skier to win five separate world championship disciplines.

He is currently the reigning downhill and super-G champion, while he bagged the combined and giant slalom titles in 2003.

Providing a concern over an injury doesn't restrict him, people on a ski holiday in Are could see history in the making this weekend.
