ST. MORITZ, Switzerland -- Max Franz of Austria edged Bode Miller by three hundredths of a second in Thursday's first training run in tough conditions for the last World Cup downhill before the Sochi Olympics.

A lot of snow fell on the course overnight and organizers were forced to lower the start. Saturday's downhill and Sunday's giant slalom replace the races originally slated for Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, which were cancelled because of a lack of snow.

Here, the opposite may be the problem, with more snow forecast into the weekend.

Franz covered the 2,274-meter (2,487-yard) long Corviglia course in one minute, 37.72 seconds, with Miller .03 seconds behind. Matthias Mayer of Austria was third, .16 back, with Manuel Osborne-Paradis of Canada in fourth, .23 adrift.
