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

On Thursday, the World Cup finals in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria were forced to cancel both men’s and women’s downhill trainings. The decision was made to protect the slope for the speed races due to predicted elevated temperatures and more rain. Despite Wednesday’s sessions proceeding as planned, the cancellation was necessary to ensure optimal conditions for the upcoming super-G races on Friday, the women’s downhill on Saturday, and the men’s downhill on Sunday, which concludes the season.

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, and a 68-point lead over Stephanie Venier. Meanwhile, Marco Odermatt has clinched his third consecutive overall championship and giant slalom title weeks ago. He currently leads by 81 points in super-G standings and 42 points in downhill.
