In the first of three Channel 4 shows on the World Cup Finals, all eyes will be on American Bode Miller and Didier Cuche4.gif as they compete for the Downhill title in the season’s final Men's Downhill race. Cuche currently leads Miller in the Downhill by five points, and Miller is looking to become the first American to win a World Cup Downhill Championship.

On the women’s side, American Lindsey Vonn has clinched the Downhill title, but is looking to extend her lead in the Overall points standings. Vonn currently leads German Maria Riesch by 157 points with four races remaining.
