Bode to take the rest of the WC season off, and will begin training at Rosa Khutor in February.

On top of all of that, the Russians apparently made a pre-season deal with the US, giving the US a few weeks of training on the Sochi track in return for training at Copper. I honestly think that with such a new track, Bode will have one of the biggest advantages going into the Olympics next year. While everyone else will either be skiing the track for their first or second time, Bode will have close 100 hours on the track. I wonder who else will be going over with them, maybe Mancuso if she misses the cut for worlds?

I have seen training in Sochi mentioned in earlier articles.  I thought others from the team including Ted were going also. I remember reading that they were taking time from the tour before the championships to ski on the Sochi track.

So just DH and SG at this point, I assume. Hard to imagine Bode Miller skiing SC anymore.

As usual, he wants to get in the starting gate better prepared than anyone else. The same cannot be said for his golf game.

For a guy who's always said he doesn't care about the Olympics he's sure taking this one seriously.

He seemed to care a lot about the last one, and tailored his training to peak around Vancouver. He ran out of gas leading Wengen with a few gates to go...but he was ready for Vancouver. It is always fun to see in print the wonderful things Maroltt says about Bode. He wasn't so kind before Team America. After 2008 people figured out he can train, and others here started to take his ideas including with diet. If it weren't for Rearick, he may not be skiing today and would have missed the last Olympics. But who cares about a coach? Certainly not NBC, who was more interested in showing curling. I guess we will all be viewing a hijacked Russian site next year instead of sparse and delayed domestic coverage.
