Miller, who recently switched to Bomber skis was hoping to compete in FIS World Cup events this year to sustain his livelihood and support his family. Sources close to Bode are saying that he plans on evaluating his physical condition in a year’s time before attempting a return to the starting gate. Many people, including ski racing coaches, have questioned whether Bode can still compete at the elite level he’s used to.
