VAL GARDENA, Italy - When Utah native Steven Nyman arrives in the heart of the Dolomite Range each year the week before Christmas, he gets a special feeling.Special because his only two World Cup victories have come on the classic Saslong course, in 2006 and 2012.Special because this race is considered a downhillers downhill — full of long, high-speed gliding sections but also filled with terrain and both big and small jumps, a result of following the mountains natural fall line like few other World Cup courses.On average during the two-minute descent, skiers go airborne a total of 25 to 30 times.Its at the top of the list for fun factor, Nyman said after leading Wednesdays only training session for Fridays race. It has all of the ingredients: jumps, technical sections, gliding.At 6-foot-4 (1.93 metres) and 215 pounds (98 kilograms), Nymans big, muscular legs are well equipped to deal with the constant leaping and landing that often make skiers look like deer as they navigate their way down through the forest.The key to this course is getting back to the ground as quickly as possible. I have long shock absorbers and that helps a great deal, Nyman, who grew up in Sundance, Utah, said in an interview with The Associated Press.Thin snow cover this year prompted organizers to cancel Thursdays second training session to help preserve the course. Also, the super-G and downhill were flip-flopped, pushing the super-G back to Saturday.They cant groom the piste and make it perfectly smooth, so theres a lot of natural stuff, micro terrain and a lot of bumps, Nyman said. The camel jumps are maybe the biggest theyve ever been.Another win would move Nyman within one of the race record of four shared by Austrian legend Franz Klammer and Italian great Kristian Ghedina.Nyman enters in solid form following a third-place result in Beaver Creek, Colorado, this month.Thats a big step up from last season, when his best result was 19th in Lake Louise, Alberta. Nyman has had to deal with back, knee and Achilles tendon injuries in recent seasons but hes fully healthy now.Physically I feel really, really good, Nyman said. Last year I felt good, too, but my equipment didnt feel right. So after last season I threw everything out and started over with my ski technician. We downsized my boots, worked on new plates, new bindings — new everything. And now weve gotten to the point where Im feeling really comfortable and I like it.Confident enough that the 32-year-old Nyman is wondering if he could challenge for the season-long World Cup downhill title. With the likes of Aksel Lund Svindal, Bode Miller and Erik Guay — who won this downhill last season — out injured, he sees an opening.Sochi bronze medallist Kjetil Jansrud of Norway won the opening two downhills this season but he trailed Nyman by 0.19 seconds in Wednesdays training.Ive got a lot of knowledge of the courses and I feel like I can push my ranking higher and maybe even go after a title, Nyman said.Nyman slipped to the U.S. squads B team for this season, meaning he had to pay $20,000 out of his own pocket to race the World Cup. Fortunately, some U.S. Ski Team trustees stepped in and helped him out financially.Teammate Marco Sullivan is in the same situation.Its been tough on athletes of our calibre. But weve figured it out, Nyman said. Its brought awareness to the team.Sullivan has finished fourth and fifth in Val Gardena but never made the podium. Coming off a fifth-place result in Lake Louise, hes also got momentum.With former U.S womens head coach Alex Hoedlmoser taking over the mens speed team for this season, theres a new vibe within the squad.He busts his butt on the hill to create great training for us and we really respect that, Nyman said. And with Pete Anderson, Scotty Veenis and Chris Beckmann as assistant coaches, we all respect each other. Theyre all my age and were good buddies for life. Its fun and were all fired up.___Andrew Dampf can be followed at Nike Air Max Plus Nz .

MONTREAL -- Matteo Ferrari describes the Montreal Impact as "a team that likes offence but doesnt like to defend." Those traits were clear to the 24,071 at Olympic Stadium on Saturday as the Impact dominated the scoring chances but settled for a 2-2 draw with the New York Red Bulls in a battle of still-winless Major League Soccer teams. And the home side was lucky to get a point, as Peguy Luyindula put a penalty shot off a goalpost that could have given New York a 3-1 lead early in the second half. The Impact tied the game in the 60th minute on Felipe Martins header. Andres Romero scored in the fifth minute for Montreal (0-3-2), only to see turnovers lead to goals three minutes apart from Jonny Steele and Luyindula in the first half for the Red Bulls (0-1-4). New Impact coach Frank Klopas, still looking for his first win, has been trying to get his team to avoid forcing the play in the midfield and giving the ball away, but they have been slow learners thus far. Ferrari, the veteran Italian central defender, is one of those who has to deal with the consequences when opponents counterattack. "We played well, we had a lot of chances to score, but in the end, if we dont pay attention to the defensive part its going to be all the time counterattacks," the 34-year-old said. "The last games, every time we lose the ball badly, they score. "I dont want to be negative, but when you score two goals, it should be enough to win. We have to be more concentrated without the ball." The Impact controlled most of the game and swarmed the Red Bulls net repeatedly, but either missed their shots or were foiled by goalkeeper Luis Robles. Montreal led 21-13 in shot attempts and 12-4 in shots on goal. Striker Marco Di Vaio was in alone a handful of times and failed to convert. Justin Mapp was stopped from just outside the six-yard box and Romero was robbed by Robles as he hammered a Di Vaio rebound on target from 10 yards out. At the other end, the Red Bulls made the most of their chances and earned their fourth draw in a row. "Coming into Montreal and getting a point -- you take it," said New York coach Mike Petke. "We seem to like ties, but its still early in the season." The Red Bulls had a glorious chance to secure a win when Ferrari got an arm around Bradley Wright-Phillips in the area, but Luyindula hit the woodwork from the spot in the 48th minute. Ferrari escaped without seeing the red card. "I dont know if it was a penalty or not, but I felt like the referee was not sure about it," said Ferrari. "If you make a penalty, it should be a red card and they send me off. "Anyway, they didnt score. We had another chance to stay in the game." Felipe started and finished the tying goal when he played a long ball to Mapp on the right side and went to the net to head in his first oof the season.dddddddddddd "I believed we would score," said Felipe, whose team was coming off a 1-1 draw last week in Philadelphia. "We had a lot of chances and didnt get the three points, so thats sad. We played well but we made mistakes and we tied again." Ferrari said his team has been the same since they entered MLS in 2012 -- good at moving forward and getting chances and bad at getting back to cover when mistakes are made. The back line gets much of the blame from fans when goals are conceded, which Ferrari finds unfair. "This is a team that likes offence but doesnt like to defend, so the defence in the back suffers," he said. "Also our field is very big and theres a lot of ground to cover. "Its not easy. Today we saw it. Against Seattle (a 2-0 loss in their home opener) it was the same. We have to work on that and do better because every week were here talking about us not winning and the win isnt coming." Asked if pressure was starting to build on the team, Ferrari smiled. "Pressure is something else," he said. "Its when you dont have food to give to your kids. "Its still a game. I played in a place like Roma, like Turkey. Thats pressure. When you dont win, they wait for you outside the stadium to break your car. But Im not happy because, as a defender, I cant be happy when every game you concede one or two and sometimes three goals." It looked like the Impact would romp when Romero scored. The goal was set up when Heath Pearce recovered a ball and Felipe slipped it to the Argentine midfielder for a shot off the far post. Then New Yorks Lloyd Sam got a cross past Heath and Steele beat defender Eric Miller to the ball to nudge it across the line in the 31st. Only three minutes later, Di Vaios weak cross-field pass was picked off by Steele, who sent it to Luyindula breaking in on the right to score for a second game in a row. The Red Bulls had to draw on their depth as several of their starters sat out. Forward Thierry Henry, who has seven goals in four games against Montreal, and defender Jamison Olave werent in the lineup because both have health issues playing on artificial turf. Forward Tim Cahill (hamstring) and defender Richard Eckersley (ankle) were hurt in last weeks 1-1 draw with Chivas USA. Also, veteran midfielder Dax McCarty didnt start, but Petke said he sent him in after the intermission because Roy Miller had suffered an Achilles tendon injury. The Impact defeated the Red Bulls 1-0 at the Big O early last season, then lost to them twice in New York. Notes -- Striker Jack McInerney, obtained Friday in a trade with Philadelphia, is to join the Impact on Monday. As No. 9 is taken by Di Vaio, he will wear No. 99. The Impact had no lineup changes from last week, with Di Vaio, Romero and Pearce each getting a second start in a row. ' ' '
