Good news, bad news

Lindsey Vonn is feeling better and has returned to Europe to train. Meanwhile, it’s less likely Bode Miller will race this season.

Vonn started training for a return to the World Cup circuit after a midseason break to recover from an intestinal illness.

Rainer Salzgeber, the racing director of Vonn’s equipment supplier Head, told the Associated Press that the four-time overall winner arrived in Austria on Wednesday and began light training yesterday. He said Vonn plans to race in the downhill and super-G on Jan. 12-13 in St. Anton, Austria.

Miller still hasn’t started training, working his way back after left knee surgery at the end of last season. Salzgeber said Miller was still expected back in Europe at the end of the month, but likely won’t race this season.

“I don’t know what he expects, but I don’t expect it,” Salzgeber said.
