Daron Rahlves expected to be ready after X Games crash

A violent crash in last week's Winter X Games isn't expected to keep Daron Rahlves out of the first Olympic skicross race Feb. 21 in Vancouver.

U.S. Ski and Snowboard CEO Bill Marolt said he expects Rahlves and fellow American Casey Puckett, who is recovering from a separated shoulder, will be "fully ready to go" by the time they arrive in Vancouver.

Rahlves, 36, retired from Alpine skiing in 2006 after 28 World Cup podium finishes, including 12 victories, and three World Championship medals.
