Bansko World Cup Slalom Cancelled Due to Safety Concerns and Heavy Rainfall

Slalom Race Canceled at Bansko World Cup Due to Unfavorable Conditions

The Bansko World Cup slalom race was unfortunately canceled after the first 31 competitors completed their runs due to heavy rainfall, strong winds, and deteriorating conditions. Despite the challenging conditions, the day began with a large crowd in the stands and athletes prepared to compete.

FIS Referee Markus Waldner explained that the conditions were unsafe for the remaining racers and the forecast did not show any signs of improvement. The decision to cancel the race was made in the interest of fairness and safety for the athletes. Noel had a strong lead ahead of the field after his stellar performance, maintaining composure even after a bobble toward the bottom section of the course.

The next slalom race will take place at the Stifel Palisades Tahoe Cup on February 25th.
