VAL GARDENA, Italy (AP) -- Erik Guay wants revenge. Aksel Lund Svindal only wants to maintain his speed. And Steven Nyman wants to prove that his victory a year ago was no fluke.

As for Bode Miller, he's still getting used to his new, lighter frame in the speed events.

There are plenty of storylines heading into the World Cup season's first classic downhill on the Saslong course.

Guay thought he won the race last year until a drastic weather change helped later starters on a shortened course, with Nyman taking the win and Rok Perko of Slovenia claiming second, relegating Guay to third.

Guay says "last year in my mind I had a victory here. ... Not to take anything away from Steven or Rok Perko but that's how I look at it."
