Francois Bourque (New-Richmond, QC) shrugged off heavy snow falls, a rutted surface and a late starting position in Beaver Creek, Colorado, to place sixth in the Birds of Prey World Cup giant slalom on Saturday. Thomas Grandi (Canmore, AB) crossed 17th while Erik Guay (Mont-Tremblant, QC) scored his maiden GS points in his first technical in two years with a 21st place finish. Bode Miller led another American 1-2 sweep, clocking the winning time of 2 minutes, 34.56 seconds, ahead of teammate Daron Rahlves, the winner of Friday's downhill, who this time came in runner-up in 2:35.05 for his first GS podium.
