WENGEN, Switzerland - Bode Miller has opted not to race on Sunday when the United States mens team seeks a third straight World Cup downhill victory. [url=http://www.airmax270reactpascher.fr/fausse-air-max-270-react-reverse-logo.html]Air Max 270 React Reverse Logo[/url] .Miller opted for caution after a training run on Thursday, on his return to top-level skiing since undergoing back surgery in November.Im definitely not in race shape, Miller said after practice on a shortened version of the classic 4.4-kilometre (2.75-mile) course, the World Cups longest. Its a challenge, its hard to accept, but it is what it is.Miller came to Wengen aiming to intensify his preparation for a home world championships at Vail-Beaver Creek, Colorado, from Feb. 2-15.Still, the temptation was strong to start in the 85th edition of a storied Alpine race he has won twice.U.S. mens head coach Sasha Rearick said Miller took a tough but smart decision.It was difficult. Hes a competitor, said Rearick, adding that 37-year-old Miller was only getting wiser and smarter, and this is a wise decision.The Americans are still the team to beat after victories last month in Italy for Steven Nyman at Val Gardena and Travis Ganong at Santa Caterina.Guys know we are going to be in there, U.S. racer Marco Sullivan said. We can give each other course reports and really trust that everyone is skiing well.The U.S. men last had three successive downhill wins in 2004.These guys are mature enough to know what they are doing, Rearick said. But we have to step up our game and ski better than in the last two days.Jansrud won the training run on Thursday which had the same top-3 finishers as Tuesdays opening practice despite starting lower down the mountain because of strong winds.Olympic champion Matthias Mayer of Austria trailed 0.45 seconds behind Kjetil Jansrud of Norway, winner of the seasons first two downhills. Carlo Janka of Switzerland, the 2010 Lauberhorn winner, was 0.96 behind on a track that should be much icier on Sunday.The Lauberhorn race has been switched from the traditional Saturday slot because of forecast fog and snowfalls up to 20 centimetres (8 inches). The slalom event, which can be run in poorer visibility, has been brought forward from Sunday.Forecasted gusts of up to 130 kph (80 mph) could affect the super-combined event on Friday, when Miller has been allowed a further practice as a forerunner for later starters. The opening downhill portion is expected to start below the signature Hundschopf cliff-face jump or even further down the slope.A dry, clear, freezing day is forecast on Sunday for the biggest event in this Alpine nations sports calendar, complete with formation fly pasts by Swiss air force jets.The host team has won four of the past six years since Millers second title.Theres so many tricky sections, and long flat sections afterward, that if you have mistakes in those tricky parts your day is over, Ganong said. Its such a hard race because of that. [url=http://www.airmax270reactpascher.fr/fausse-air-max-270-2021/fausse-air-max-270-se.html]Air Max 270 Se Reflective Off Noir[/url] . Raonic, the mens No. 8 seed from Thornhill, Ont., needed more than three hours to overcome Frenchman Gilles Simon 4-6, 6-3, 2-6, 6-2, 7-5 and become the first Canadian man into the fourth round at Roland Garros.

Klein went undrafted in the NFL last year following his senior season with the Wildcats. He was invited to the Houston Texans rookie camp, but was not offered a contract. He was a second-team All-American in 2012, as well as the Big 12s Offensive Player of the Year, a Heisman finalist and the winner of the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

Klein, 24, is the Alouettes second high-profile signing from south of the border in recent weeks. Former Pro Bowl wide receiver Chad Johnson signed with the club last week. Following the retirement of Anthony Calvillo, the Alouettes starting QB job is up for grabs with Troy Smith as the frontrunner. Smith signed a three-year extension with the Alouettes following the end of last season. Tanner Marsh and Alex Brink are also under contract. ' ' '
