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

The cancellation of men’s and women’s downhill trainings on Thursday at the World Cup finals in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria, was aimed at protecting the slope for the upcoming super-G races. While the sessions on Wednesday proceeded as planned, the decision was made to cancel both training sessions on Thursday due to predicted elevated temperatures and more rain.

Lara Gut-Behrami, who has already secured the women’s overall and giant slalom titles, currently holds a 69-point lead in the super-G standings. Additionally, she 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. On the men’s side, Marco Odermatt clinched his third consecutive overall championship and giant slalom title weeks ago. He currently leads by 81 points in the super-G standings and 42 points in downhill.
