They say the best things are worth the wait. In the case of the FIS Alpine World Ski Championships everyone is hoping this proves to be true after the second straight day of cancellations.
The organizers have been forced to place musical chairs with the race schedule after tricky weather has wreaked havoc on the early schedule.
On Monday, the women’s Alpine Combined was planned, but heavy snow and avalanche danger on the upper portion of the course forced its postponement until one week later.
Meanwhile, today was meant to be ‘Super Tuesday’ with both the men’s and women’s Super-G’s planned. But already last night, the Organizers bumped the men’s Super-G to Thursday, February 11th, after it was clear they would need more time to clear the course of more heavy snow. The move of the men's Super-G to Thursday also means that the men's downhill training schduled for the same day has been cancelled.
The move meant the women would take center stage in the Super-G today, but unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans as a dense fog covered the upper portion of the course. The racers waited for 90 minutes at the start in hopes of the fog breaking, but it was not to be as for the second straight day, the results table remained empty.
Word came later in the day, that the medal hunt would be delayed yet another day as the men's Alpine Combined, scheduled for Wednesday was also postponed. It will now be staged on Monday together with the women's Alpine Combined.
