BEAVER CREEK, Colo. — Ted Ligety captured a World Cup giant slalom, while U.S. teammate Bode Miller finished way back in 27th place.
Ligety flew through the course in a combined time of 2 minutes, 37.67 seconds Sunday, edging Kjetil Jansrud of Norway by 0.82 seconds. Marcel Hirscher of Austria finished third.
After a slow opening run, Miller switched skis, but that didn't help as he finished 8.68 seconds behind Ligety.
