World Cup finals cancel downhill training to preserve slope ahead of speed races

Rising Temperatures and Rain Force World Cup Cancellations in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria

The World Cup finals in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria were forced to cancel both men’s and women’s downhill trainings on Thursday due to predicted elevated temperatures and more rain. The decision was made to protect the slope for the speed races, which will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.

Lara Gut-Behrami has already secured the women’s overall and giant slalom titles and holds a 69-point lead in the super-G standings. She also leads the downhill category with a 19-point advantage over Sofia Goggia, who was sidelined for the rest of the season in February. On the men’s side, Marco Odermatt clinched his third consecutive overall championship and the giant slalom title weeks ago. He currently leads by 81 points in the super-G standings and 42 points in downhill.
