As the Men's Super G competition gets underway, American Andrew Weibrecht is holding an early lead with a time of 1:30.65. Weibrecht laid down a clean run in the Super G compeition, which favors speed and those who can improvise on a course that no one is allowed to practice on.

Not helping any of the racers is that the Whisler course appears to be breaking apart in the Canadian sunlight. Snow and ice has been flying up at an alarming rate as skiers fly down the course in speeds of excess of 100 kmh.

Still up to race? Bode Miler, Didier Cuche, and Carlo Janka -- all big guns.
