Vonn 2nd in DH opener

Vail star’s best friend snaps her downhill winning streak, while Alice McKennis of Glenwood Springs takes 11th at Lake Louise World Cup By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributing Writer

Lindsey Vonn of Vail races down the course yesterday on her way to taking second place in the first women’s World Cup downhill race of the season in Lake Louise, Canada. AP photo.

At least Lindsey Vonn can take a little comfort in the fact that her big win streak wasn’t snapped by a stranger. Vonn, a Ski and Snowboard Club Vail racer and Lionshead resident, had five consecutive downhill World Cup downhill wins going into yesterday’s downhill opener in Lake Louise. That’s a record. Long reported to be Vonn’s best friend, Maria Riesch of Germany will now try to snap that record. Riesch has one

win going into today’s second Downhill of the season. It came yesterday, when she edged Vonn, the reigning Olympic downhill champion, by a mere .12 seconds. We’re going to blame it on Vonn having a cold, but she wasn’t making such excuses. “I’ve raced through a lot worse things than a cold so I didn’t even consider not racing today,” Vonn was quoted saying yesterday in a U.S. Ski Team press release. “I thought I skied really well and unfortunately it wasn’t enough for the win today, but I’m really happy with second place.”

Seven Americans in top 30 Meanwhile Alice McKennis of Glenwood Springs ran first and spent a good portion of time in the leader box before slipping to 11th. One of the people to bump her was Julia Mancuso, who spent last week training in Vail and eating lunch at her uncle’s French deli in Lionshead. Vonn, Mancuso and McKennis were three of seven U.S. women to finish in the top 30 in what was one of the squad’s best overall team performances in a while. “We are skiing really well as [See LAKE, page 18]

Deficit plan suffers vote deficit

A bold plan to slash the U.S. budget deficit fell short yesterday of winning support needed from a presidential commission to trigger congressional action, but it was expected to help shape future budget debates. The plan found more backing than many anticipated, from Democrats and Republicans, and parts of it could be used in President Barack Obama’s next budget, due in February, as well as in [See THE UPDATE, page 9]

Birds of Prey Super G slated for today at Beaver Creek By John O’Neill Mountaineer Contributing Writer Perhaps today fans will see the official start to the Birds of Prey World Cup competition at Beaver Creek. A steady wind of 30 mph with gusts up to 60 mph caused yesterday’s opening event, dubbed “North America’s Downhill,” to be canceled. While the Beaver Creek stop on the World Cup circuit has been struck by cancelations before in other events, this year marks the first cancelation of the Downhill discipline. The original start time was set for 11 a.m., but with the heavy winds the World Cup jury deliberated on a possible afternoon start. By 1:30 p.m. the winds were

Santa gets pulled by a member of the Holy Cross Powder Hounds in Minturn a few years ago. The jolly old elf will be pulled into town again tonight as part of the holiday tradition there.

Minturn to light tree tonight Santa will snowmobile into town to start holiday season By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer When Kris Kringle travels around the world every December, he usually makes his trip on a miniature sleigh, pulled by eight tiny reindeer. When he visits Minturn, though, the jolly old elf prefers to get around like many of the locals do – on a full-sized snowmobile. “It’s a little different,” Andy Kaufman of the Minturn Community Fund said of the tradition. “You don’t usually get Santa coming in on a snowmobile, and it’s just like Minturn to do something like that.” The usual sight has been a Minturn holiday staple for years, typically at parties put on by the town’s premier snowmobiling club: the Holy Cross Powder Hounds. This year, the Powder Hounds have teamed up with

the Minturn Community Fund, a 501(c)3 devoted helping struggling families and organizing community events in Minturn. The duo will host the town’s tree lighting tonight, which is the only such ceremony in recent memory, said Minturn Community Fund Director Maren Lantzy. The ceremony was inspired by a lone Minturn resident, who Lantzy refused to name but said sent an email to the Community Fund asking for holiday lights. “It looks like the main street of a vibrant community [when lit],” Lantzy said, “which is what we are.” The festivities will kick off at 4 p.m. behind Mountain Pedaler, and will feature not just a visit from Mr. Claus, but a Christmas-tree ornament decoration booth, free hot cocoa and a few fire pits for roasting marshmallows.

‘Heat is On’ effort nabbed 8 Vail's best drunk drivers in Eagle County Italian! NEWS

Local police make 12 arrests, 249 traffic stops during increased enforcement period last weekend By Matt Minich Mountaineer Staff Writer At least 249 drivers are aware that the heat was on last week in Eagle County. That’s how many traffic stops were made by officers with the Gore Range DUI Task Force from Tuesday, Nov. 23 to Monday, Nov. 29. Those traffic stops resulted in just eight DUI arrests over those five days, and 12 arrests in total. The other four arrests were of drivers who were pulled over with out-

standing warrants, said Eagle County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Best, the coordinator of the task force. Last year, the task force made 13 arrests during the same enforcement period. The numbers are in addition to arrests made by officers on regular patrols. While numbers were fairly standard in Eagle County this year, arrests from the Heat is On campaign were down significantly statewide. The Colorado Department of Transportation reported 587 arrests during the same enforcement period

last year, but this year only made 363, according to an online database provided by CDOT. This fiscal year, the Eagle County Sheriff’s Department received $21,106.25 from CDOT to fund increased DUI enforcement. This money is enough to fund 382 additional hours of enforcement, Eagle County Sheriff’s Department Spokeswoman Shannon Cordingly said in an email. The funding comes from license reinstatement fees, which are paid by drivers who have [See HEAT IS ON, page 18]

BMHS Music Department hosting first Marketplace and Holiday Art Fair today Event takes place at Edwards campus from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. By Chris Hoff Mountaineer Contributing Writer Christmas is getting closer, so don’t miss your chance to buy something for everyone on your list from one spot. Today from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Battle Mountain High School will be hosting more than 40 local vendors at their Edwards campus; the vendors will be selling jewelry, flowers, candles, photography and art. The Marketplace and Holiday Art Fair is being presented by the Battle Mountain High School Music Department. This is the first year this event is being held. As a fundraiser to support the music department, organizers hope it will be an annual function. “With all the budget cuts to the schools, arts are suffering,� event organizer Patti Thornton said. “We believe strongly in the benefit of music.� Today’s fair is an event for the whole family. While parents spend their time shopping, kids will have games to play and can enter a cookie decorating contest. There will also be a special visit from Father Christmas himself – Santa will be available for pictures between noon and 2 p.m. Each of the more than 40 vendors paid a $50 fee to be a part of the fair, this money all goes to support the music department. In addition there will be a bake sale, other food items, t-shirts and other miscellaneous goods for sale. The profits also will go to support the music department. Thornton said it will be a great way for the community to come together and celebrate the holidays. She says music plays an important roles in the lives of children by helping them keep out of trouble and teaching them discipline. She says her son is heavily involved in the program and is planning on studying music theater next year in college. “It’s going to be a great way to interact with our com-

munity and support the arts,� she said. It is also a way to support local artists, she pointed out, and added the items for sale aren’t your grandmother’s doily. She said they selected vendors to ensure there was quality items for sale, like the photography of Carol Calinoff, who has traveled to 158 cities, and 14 countries. She will have a booth selling photos from her travels to places like Mali and China. “The places I go are beautiful,� she said. “I think I can really capture the subject.� Calinoff has lived in the valley for the last 24 years. She said she takes photos of what she enjoys looking at. She dates her interest in photography to when she was living in New York in the 70s. “It’s a nice way to experience art if you can’t paint,� she said. Meanwhile Aaron Wacker gets to see how music makes a difference in a student’s life. He has been the music teacher at Battle Mountain High School for the last three years. A graduate from the University of Northern Colorado holding a bachelor’s degree in music with an emphasis on education, Wacker calls music an outlet for students from more academic classes. “It gives them something educational and worthwhile to take with them for the rest of their lives,� he said. Wacker said because learning music activates both sides of the student’s brain, it stimulates development of visual, kinetic and auditory parts of the brain. This mental stimulation carries over into learning other subjects, and makes students stronger learners, he said. Having music, and a group of people who share a musical interest, is also important for the students. “It’s a safe haven of like minded students,� he said. “When I think back to my childhood, the teachers I always remember are my band directors.� Wacker says he hopes he can touch the lives of his students in the same way his music teachers did his.

Farley is known for the bold brush strokes and vibrant colors that have captured many contemporary sports moments. In the last five years alone Farley has painted live at the US Open, Super Bowls, The World Series, PGA Events, Stanley Cups Championships, and NBA All Star Games. “Paint what you know,” said Farley, who was a selfdescribed all-everything athlete in his scholastic years. “For me that was sports and music.” Michael Paderewski, owner of Paderewski Fine Art, said he chose to feature Farley’s work because he liked what he saw. “The colors, the composition and the subjects themselves - you can see the emotion and get the experience without finite brushwork,” Paderewski said about Farley’s skill and style. “Malcolm (Farley) is new to us. Our gallery started as very traditional and this broadens us into sports and into a unique style.” Known for artistically capturing moments in sport

Surprise visit from the chief

President Barack Obama told U.S. troops in a surprise holiday-season visit yesterday that they are making important progress in Afghanistan, and he pledged the country would never again be a “safe haven for terrorists.� But a war-strategy meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai was scrapped at the last minute. “You will succeed in your mission,� Obama told more than 3,500 cheering troops in a huge hangar. “We said we were going to break the Taliban’s momentum. That’s what you’re doing. You’re going on the offense, tired of playing defense.� Obama had traveled to Afghanistan to thank the troops and to deal with frayed relations with Karzai. But after he flew 14 hours for the visit, the White House said Obama couldn’t make the short additional trip to meet with Karzai in Kabul because the weather was too bad for helicopter travel. Instead, the two leaders spoke by telephone, Obama at the air base and Karzai in Kabul.

orbit and landed itself in early morning darkness yesterday at a California airbase after a successful maiden flight that lasted more than seven months, the Air Force said. The stubby-winged, robotic craft fired its engine to begin re-entry into Earth’s atmosphere and autonomously landed at 1:16 a.m. PST at coastal Vandenberg Air Force Base, 130 miles northwest of Los Angeles Range safety officers were on hand to track its descent over the Pacific and activate a destruct mechanism if the landing needed to be aborted. There were no immediate reports of any sonic booms being heard.

Muscles flexed in Pacific

In an ongoing show of force following a deadly North Korean attack on a frontline island, the U.S. and Japan began one of their biggest-ever military exercises yesterday, mobilizing more than 44,000 troops, hundreds of aircraft and a U.S. supercarrier. The drills come just after the U.S. and South Korea concluded maneuvers in the Yellow Sea. The exercises brought immediate criticism from China, which is wary of having foreign navies off its shores and has been increasingly assertive over large swaths of waters in the south and east China seas, where some of the drills would take place. “At present, there are already enough of these kinds of military exercises. Under the present conditions, all relevant parties ought to do more to benefit the maintenance of peace and stability on the Korean peninsula and in the region, and not the opposite,� said Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu. The Nov. 23 North Korean attack killed two South Korean marines and two civilians on Yeonpyeong Island, a tiny enclave of civilians and military bases located near a disputed maritime border.

The generals publicly rebutted their own bosses and the White House, arguing that it is too risky to change the policy now. That gave political ammunition to congressional Republicans trying to retain the ban known as “don’t ask, don’t tell.� “It’s important that we’re clear about the military risks,� said Gen. George Casey, the Army’s top officer. “Repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ would be a major cultural and policy change in the middle of a war.� President Barack Obama has promised to jettison a policy he says is discriminatory, and asked Congress to repeal the 17-year-old law this year.

President Obama is trying to rush the New START treaty through Congress—but it’s far too important not to explore thoroughly before a decision is made, writes Mitt Romney in the Boston Globe.

2011 looks good for tax cuts

$ 95

With unemployment rising, incoming House Speaker John Boehner vowed yesterday that Republicans will show the way toward extending tax cuts in 2011 if the outgoing Democrats fail to do it sooner. Boehner, R-Ohio, made his comment as partisan wrangling in the Senate slowed attempts to pass legislation ensuring that tax cuts enacted in 2001 and 2003 don’t expire. The White House has signaled that President Barack Obama is prepared to sign a bill extending tax cuts at all levels, as Republicans want. At the same time, Democrats want the bill to include an extension of unemployment benefits for the long-term unemployed, renewal of tax provisions benefiting college students, companies that hire the jobless and lower- and middleincome workers, even if they don’t make enough to pay federal taxes.

CBS News is reporting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has once more reiterated that she will not run for president in 2012, going so far as to refer to her current role in government as “my last public position.� At a town hall meeting appearance in Manama, Bahrain yesterday, Clinton denied intentions to run for either president or vice president on the ticket with President Obama, who defeated her in the 2008 Democratic

presidential primary. Some experts have also speculated that she could replace Robert Gates next year when he retires as secretary of defense.

Helen Thomas shares the love

Helen Thomas said Thursday that she stands by her comments about Israel she made earlier this year that led to her resignation as a national columnist. And she went further, saying that Zionists control U.S. foreign policy and other institutions. The local Jewish community condemned her remarks. In an interview, Thomas, 90, said that criticizing Israel led to her resig- THOMAS nation and ostracism in Washington. “I can call a president of the United States anything in the book, but I can’t touch Israel, which has Jewishonly roads in the West Bank,� Thomas said. “No American would tolerate that -- white-only roads.�

Saving the children ... from bake sales

Don’t touch my brownies! A child nutrition bill on its way to President Barack Obama - and championed by the first lady - gives the government power to limit school bake sales and other fundraisers that health advocates say sometimes replace wholesome meals in the lunchroom. Republicans, notably Sarah Palin, and public school organizations decry the bill as an unnecessary intrusion on a common practice often used to raise money. “This could be a real train wreck for school districts,� Lucy Gettman of the National School Boards Association said yesterday, a day after the House cleared the bill. “The federal government should not be in the business of regulating this kind of activity at the local level.�The legislation, part of first lady Michelle Obama’s campaign to stem childhood obesity, provides more meals at school for needy kids, including dinner, and directs the Agriculture Department to write guidelines to make those meals healthier. The legislation would apply to all foods sold in schools during regular class hours, including in the cafeteria line, vending machines and at fundraisers.

Charlie’s black eye

Charlie Rangel’s Democrats are expressing disappointment with Rangel one day after he was censured. “It certainly leaves a black eye on Charles Rangel’s face. But like any other black eye, it will go away. ... Even if the election was held today or tomorrow, in spite of all this, I think he would still be re-elected,� said State Assemblyman Adam Clayton Powell IV, Rangel’s chief rival in the 2010 Democratic primary,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------who indicated Thursday night he expected to try for Rangel’s seat again. “In his actions, Mr. Rangel showed carelessness, poor judgment, and a disregard for the Rules of the House. Some sanction is necessary and appropriate. Under the rules and precedents of the House, however, his conduct merits a reprimand and not a censure,” said Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-N.Y.

Honey, we shrunk the hole is reporting international efforts to phase out the use of chlorofluorocarbons and other ozone-depleting substances may be paying off, according to research revealed yesterday by the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in New Zealand. The Antarctica ozone hole is the smallest it has been in the past five years, NIWA said. While a one-year reduction in the ozone hole can’t indicate a recovery stage, NIWA’s atmospheric experts say the new information adds to a pattern of less severe ozone holes in recent years.

Vegas-style payback

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is pushing behind the scenes for lame-duck legislation that would allow poker games over the Internet but restrict initial licenses to casinos and racetrack operators that have been in businesses at least five years. Some of the biggest casino operators in Reid’s home state of Nevada are eager to get a piece of the online gambling industry, which generates an estimated $5 billion a year for offshore operators. A congressional aide familiar with the issue said Reid [See THE UPDATE, page 12]

aides were circulating the draft legislation, and a copy of it was obtained by The Associated Press. The aide was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter and did so only on condition of anonymity. Four years ago, Congress effectively banned online gambling, passing legislation that prohibits banks and credit card companies from making payments to gambling websites. Supporters of online poker face less opposition with Democrats in charge of both chambers for another month. The House Financial Services Committee this year approved a bill that established a regulatory structure for online gambling.

on Thursday gave final congressional approval to a bill that would prevent advertisers from abruptly raising the volume to catch the attention of viewers wandering off when regular programming is interrupted. The bill’s House sponsor, Rep. Anna Eshoo, D-Calif., said it was her own “earsplitting experiences” that got her involved, recalling how the ads “blew us out of the house” when she watched television, already set at a high volume, with her parents. But she said her office also has gotten many messages of support and that at home people come up to her in restaurants and supermarkets to ask how the bill is doing.

Panel recommends expanding use of stomach bands for expanding stomachs

About 12 million more obese Americans could soon qualify for surgery to implant a small, flexible stomach band designed to help them lose weight by dramatically limiting their food intake. The Food and Drug Administration will make a final decision on the Lap-Band in the coming months. The device from Allergan Inc. is currently implanted in roughly 100,000 people each year and usually helps patients lose 50 pounds or more. Under federal guidelines, it has been limited to patients who are morbidly obese. Yesterday, a panel of FDA advisers recommended expanding use of the device to include patients who are less obese. The panel voted 8-2 that the benefits of broader approval outweighed the risks.

Man pleads not guilty to running vast spam network

The San Francisco Chronicle is reporting David Beckham has banished wife Victoria to her own bathroom after growing tired of her untidy ways. The soccer star, who admits having obsessive-compulsive disorder tendencies, revealed earlier this year how he has to straighten up the former Spice Girl’s closet because she leaves her clothes awry. And after 11 years of marriage, the superstar couple is using separate en-suites, because the sports ace is struggling to cope with the former Spice Girl’s messy habits.

A 23-year-old Russian man accused of masterminding a vast worldwide spamming network pleaded not guilty yesterday in federal court in Wisconsin to violating a U.S. anti-spam law. The judge ordered Oleg Y. Nikolaenko held without bond, saying he was a flight risk because of his access to cash and his lack of ties to Wisconsin or the U.S. Nikolaenko was brought into court wearing bright orange prison pants and matching sweatshirt and shackled at the ankles. His attorney entered the plea as a Russian interpreter translated for the Moscow man.

China passenger train hits 300 mph, breaks record

A Chinese passenger train hit a record speed of 302 miles per hour yesterday during a test run of a yet-to-be opened link between Beijing and Shanghai, state media said. The Xinhua News Agency said it was the fastest speed recorded by an unmodified conventional commercial train. Other types of trains in other countries have traveled faster. The line is due to open in 2012 and will halve the current travel time between the capital Beijing and Shanghai to five hours.

Vietnam’s planned sale of tiger paste protested

A local conservation group voiced opposition yesterday to the planned sale of tiger paste by Vietnamese authorities, amid warnings by the international community that the animal’s survival is in serious jeopardy. Officials in Vietnam’s northern Thanh Hoa province agreed last month to organize a public auction of 6 pounds (2.8 kilograms) of tiger paste seized from traffickers. An auction date has not been set. Vietnam bans the hunting or trade of wild animals and their products, but the Ministry of Agriculture has issued a directive allowing its use in making medicines. In Vietnam, tiger bones are used to make expensive traditional medicines purported to cure many illnesses. Two pounds (1 kilogram) of tiger paste could be sold for $10,000 on the black market. —Update stories, unless otherwise cited, appear courtesy The Associated Press

Eight charged in cycling’s international doping probe ICU promises to increase controls for 2011 season Eight people have been preliminary charged as part of a probe into the trafficking of doping products. The Caen prosecutor’s office said yesterday that the suspects spent 48 hours in custody before being released on Thursday night. Several amateur cyclists, a doctor, a pharmacist, bodybuilders and former riders were among the people arrested. They are accused of using various performance enhancing substances including anabolic agents, EPO and growth hormone, while the doctor is suspected of writing false prescriptions. The national police agency responsible for probing doping cases in France is running the operation, which focused on an alleged ring in Normandy, at the request of an investigating judge. The International Cycling Union says its anti-doping

program next year will feature more testing of riders whose biological profiles appear suspicious and a new prevention campaign targeting young cyclists. UCI president Pat McQuaid met with fellow representatives of the Cycling Anti-Doping Foundation on Thursday to discuss the main anti-doping themes for 2011. The UCI said in a statement yesterday that the themes were approved and should lead to a “significant increase in the number of controls conducted on riders whose (biological passport) profiles may indicate illegal behavior.� The UCI also plans to invest in “an ambitious prevention campaign� in collaboration with national federations “to prevent young riders from resorting to illegal practices.�

McDaniels walking into a hostile environment This time it’s not at home Fan of the 3-8 Broncos shouldn’t expect their rematch with the 7-4 Kansas City Chiefs to be anything like it was three weeks ago at Invesco Field, when Denver jumped out to a 35-0 lead and won by three touchdowns. “An old game, a new month,� is how Denver defensive lineman Kevin Vickerson described the rematch. While the Broncos have been reeling ever since their 49-29 smackdown of KC that culminated in Todd Haley’s post-game handshake snub of Josh McDaniels, the Chiefs have been on a roll, scoring 73 points in wins over Arizona and Seattle to maintain their AFC West lead. Matt Cassel threw a dozen touchdown passes in November and his passer rating was 111.2. Dwayne Bowe has caught 49 passes for 733 yards and 13 TDs in his past seven games. McDaniels tutored Cassel in New England and even pondered trading for him shortly after his arrival in Denver — the spark that ignited the Jay Cutler trade for Kyle Orton a couple of months later. “I think he’s having a great season,� McDaniels said of his former pupil, noting Cassel’s touchdown-to-interception ratio of 22-4. “To be on pace for an NFL low in turnovers and then still have that type of production in the passing game — that tells you that you are basically hitting it on the head all the time and Matt is having a season that is very deserving of all the accolades he is receiving,� McDaniels said. Cassel also has a couple of top-notch running backs in Jamaal Charles and Thomas Jones, who have combined for 1,733 yards and eight TD runs. Plus, the Chiefs are still smarting from their embarrassing trip to Denver. “The bottom line is it was one game that we didn’t play well,� Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson said. “It was probably our worst game of the year. We’ve definitely moved past that. We know they got the best of us the last time we played. We have to do a lot better job than in the first time. We have to stop the run and make a play. We didn’t make any plays.� Sounds a lot like the Broncos of late. They’re 3-8 for the first time in 20 years and their 5-16 slide dating to last season is their worst such stretch in nearly 40 years. Their tailspin isn’t limited to the football field. There was the Spygate II videotaping violation that cost McDaniels credibility with fans and a $50,000

fine for not reporting it. Linebacker D.J. Williams was stripped of his captaincy for a drunken driving arrest. The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probe into wide receiver Kenny McKinleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s suicide in September found that he had financial and personal problems and a gambling habit that had him $40,000 in debut to Las Vegas casinos. Orton said the players arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t distracted by all the offthe-field issues facing the team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think everybody understands when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re 3-8, everybody feels the heat â&#x20AC;&#x201D; players, included, and coaches,â&#x20AC;? Orton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just how it is. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to win football games and we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t done a great job of that.â&#x20AC;? Perhaps most disconcerting to McDaniels, there are reports of a splintered coaching staff at Dove Valley. Offensive coordinator Mike McCoy said all the troubles arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a distraction, though. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think this is one of the best coaching staffs Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been on. Josh did a great job when he first got here of putting the staff together. We all work extremely hard together, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all in this business together,â&#x20AC;? McCoy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all one.â&#x20AC;? Defensive coordinator Don Martindale said his focus in the middle of this storm is on football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just been worried about the Chiefs,â&#x20AC;? he insisted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I think about anything else than the Chiefs, then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not doing the players or fans right for Denver. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just going to go out and try to attack Kansas City and try to stop this offense thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really rolling right now.â&#x20AC;?

He agreed that it was in the athletes’ best interests to cancel the Downhill. “The gusts make it really inconsistent for the racers,” Ankeny said. “Someone could have a 50 mph head wind and next a 50 mph tail wind. It wouldn’t matter who was the best skier, just the luckiest.” Ankeny also said looking out for the athlete’s safety should be the primary concern. “You’ve seen the jumps. The wind would get everyone off balance. It would be extremely dangerous,” he said.

If the race delayed much longer than 2 p.m., lighting would have become an issue. Ankeny said as the later races started coming down the course, the ruts that develop would become hard to see and dangerous to navigate through. Roberts agreed the safety of the athletes is always priority number one.
