Bode Miller Clinches World Cup Title
SAM Magazine--Lenzerheide, Switzerland, March 12, 2005--Bode Miller clinched the overall World Cup title today with a second-place finish in GS . Miller is the first American to win a World Cup overall title in alpine since Phil Mahre and Tamara McKinney in 1983.
Outdoor Life Network will have coverage of all the action from World Cup Finals Sunday at 3-5 p.m. ET, a special two-hour show including all races and awards presentation. OLN's "Winter Revolution" show Wednesday night at 10 ET (9 MT) will have in-depth Finals cover, too.
Today's race follows the historic tie between Miller and teammate Daron Rahlves in Friday's super G.
"It's done," Miller said of his title quest. "It's over."
With one race left, Miller is 204 points ahead of Austrian Benni Raich, who finished third and clinched the 2005 giant slalom title, which Miller was also chasing, but will have to settle for second. \
