BEAVER CREEK, Colo. (AP) - Before the season, U.S. skier Marco Sullivan was dumped by his main sponsor and demoted by the team.

No hard feelings, though. Years of injuries and inconsistent performances put him in this bind.

To ski on the World Cup circuit this season will cost him roughly $22,000, most of which will be offset through fundraising.

Still, Sullivan considered getting a side job over the summer, just to have more cash flow.

The 32-year-old never considered this: Walking away from the slopes.

Last weekend, racing on new Atomic skis after Rossignol dropped him, Sullivan charged through the downhill course in Lake Louise, Alberta, and changed everything.

Third place. From the 42nd starting position, no less. His first podium finish in nearly four years.

With that, the pressure was beginning to lighten.
