KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia - Bode Miller showed signs of bouncing back from his disappointing downhill result by leading the opening training session Tuesday for the super-combined.

While many contenders sat out, Miller — who finished eighth in Monday's downhill — sped down the shortened Rosa Khutor downhill course in one minute, 56.42 seconds.

Aleksander Aamodt Kilde of Norway finished second, 0.66 seconds behind, and Paul De La Cuesta of Spain was third, 0.82 behind.

Contenders Alexis Pinturault and Ted Ligety were fifth and 15th, respectively.

Morgan Pridy of Whistler, B.C., was 11th with a time of 1:59.26.

With two more training sessions before Friday's race, only 28 racers in the 56-man field started. Among those who didn't start were downhill winner Matthias Mayer, Aksel Lund Svindal and Ivica Kostelic.

Joachim Puchner of Austria crashed but came away with only a few bruises.
