On September 3 we tagged along with U.S. Ski Team athlete Steven Nyman for a walk through of the Birds of Prey Downhill in summer. Steven was in town for an NBC shoot talking about what it is like, from his perspective, racing the Birds of Prey. It was interesting to compare and contrast how one of the world's toughest downhills looks in September vs. what it looks like the first week of December. The Birds of Prey is the only men's World Cup race in the United States and takes place in Beaver Creek.
Mark your calendars for the 2009 Audi Birds of Prey World Cup Race Week, December 4-6.
