Reigning World Downhill Champion, Beat Feuz of Switzerland, won a hotly-contested downhill in Beaver Creek, Colorado, on Friday. With weather expected to roll in close to the scheduled start time of 10:45am MTN, organizers lowered the start to the Brink section of the course, tightening times across the board.

Feuz squeaked out the win with a total time of 1:13.59 seconds, good enough to be 0.07 seconds ahead of teammate Mauro Caviezel in second and 0.08 seconds ahead of Norwegian great, Aksel Lund Svindal, in third.

The American Downhillers were led by Steven Nyman and Bryce Bennett in a tie for ninth place, 0.56 seconds off of Feuz’s winning pace.

Stay tuned for full race coverage.
