Saturday's Alpine World Cup races cancelled

A winter storm continued to wreak havoc on the Audi FIS Alpine World Cup weekend as both the men’s and ladies’ races on Saturday had to be cancelled.

The ladies’ were due to have both a downhill training and downhill race today in Altenmarkt-Zauchensee (AUT) but due to poor weather conditions and heavy snowfall both had to be cancelled. The schedule for tomorrow has been decided and it will give the downhill another try, with the training run scheduled for 9:30 and the downhill race beginning at 12:15 CET.

On the men’s side, the heavy snowfall in Wengen (SUI) forced the cancellation of the Lauberhorn downhill race today. After nearly a half meter covered the course, there was no chance to clear the track with the snow forecast to continue to be heavy throughout the day. The men will stay with their original programme tomorrow with a slalom schedule for 10:30 first run and 13:30 second run.

FIS will keep you posted should there be any additional programme changes.
