BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Ted Ligety is leading after the first run of a World Cup giant slalom, while U.S. teammate Bode Miller just qualified for the afternoon session.
Ligety finished the course in 1 minute, 16.14 seconds Sunday and leads Kjetil Jansrud of Norway by 0.36 seconds.
Miller was in 28th place, trailing Ligety by 2.23 seconds. Americans Warner Nickerson (24th) and Tim Jitloff (29th) also made the top-30 field a day after many of the best Americans struggled on the super-G course and failed to finish.
Swiss skier Daniel Albrecht made his return to World Cup racing and is 17th. Albrecht crashed nearly two years ago during a downhill training crash at Kitzbuehel, Austria, that left him with brain and lung injuries.
