Feldberg, GER - Despite a herculean effort from organizers, crews, and officials, the Audi FIS Ski Cross World Cup in Feldberg (GER) was cut short for the second straight day as persistent snow and wind made the situation too difficult and variable to finish the event.

While yesterday organizers and officials were able to carry out competition heats for both ladies and men to facilitate an official result, the heavy snow throughout the day on Sunday made it impossible to get through a full phase of ladies' competition. Because of this, the Sunday’s ladies’ competition will go in the books as a cancellation, with no result.

On the men’s side, the men’s preliminary heats were able to be completed. With no further competition phases after the preliminary heats, it went to the World Cup standings, combined with outcome of the first round of heats, to determine the results. Jean Frederic Chapuis (FRA) would be declared the winner for the second competition in a row, with Filip Flisar (SLO) in second, and Alex Fiva (SUI) once again in third.

From here, the ski cross World Cup now moves to Idre Fjall (SWE), for a pair of competitions next weekend. A preview for the Idre Fjall events will be forthcoming.
