U.S. Men's Alpine Ski Racing Team

By

The U.S. Alpine Ski Racing Men's Team is loaded with talent, and led by 3x World Ski Champion gold medalist Ted Ligety this team goes gunning for medals in all disciplines. For the 2013 season in World Cup races the team had ten podiums with eight by Ligety and one each by Steven Nyman and Marco Sullivan, and that's not to say what the numbers would be if Bode Miller was racing.

There were three U.S.A. podiums at the 2013 FIS World Ski Championships - all gold by Ted Ligety. In 2014 look for this team to put more guys on podiums in both speed and technical events and if Bode comes back strong, Sochi will surely be his swan song and you know he'll be going all out!
