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

Unexpected Cancellation at Saalbach-Hinterglemm World Cup Downhill Trainings

In Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria, the World Cup finals faced an unexpected cancellation of both men’s and women’s downhill trainings on Thursday. Despite the sessions on Wednesday proceeding as planned, the decision was made to protect the slope for the speed races due to predicted elevated temperatures and more rain. The cancellation aimed 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. On the men’s side, 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.
