The sad news was announced today, as U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association President Bill Marolt confirmed the passing was a result of a motorcycle accident in 2005 that left Chelone in a coma for 11 days.

“Chelone Miller was an aspiring elite athlete who had made great progress as a snowboardcross rider this past season,” Marolt said in a statement. “We are all deeply saddened at the news of his death and extend our condolences to the entire Miller family.”

Miller had been focusing on snowboardcross in an effort to qualify for the 2014 Winter Olympics.

Just last month he won the Rahlves Banzai Tour overall title with a victory in Sugar Bowl, California.

Bode, meanwhile, was crowned the overall World Cup champion in 2005 and 2008 and earned a gold medal in the super combined at the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Our thoughts go out to the Miller family.

Bode Miller is a cheat, liar and a dishonorable man. He makes good men look bad. He took a young child away from it's Mother, now he impregnates another woman, denies the child, loses his own baby with new gf then tries to steal an unborn child through courts? WTF? This man was raised in poverty and the child neglect has effected his character. Child neglect is child abuse. Bode needs therapy for adults who have suffered neglect. He is not stable, and he is a known alcoholic. He LIED to each woman to get p*ssy, let's be real. it comes down to just that, sadly. I would not want him to have full custody of any child, only visitation ! Until he proves he is emotionally more mature and stable. Men and women both play mind games, but this man has created this prison of his and now he has bad karma...death of his beloved brother. Be careful who you sue, abuse or start sh*t with, causing people senseless, preventive suffering can backfire into KARMA. Hopefully this death will alter his huge ego and bring him down to Earth. He brother has left for Heaven:(


well, I'm not a fan of bode but this is serious stuff.
.....MY CONDOLENCE, bode.
