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

The cancellation of both men’s and women’s downhill trainings on Thursday at the World Cup finals in Saalbach-Hinterglemm, Austria was a strategic decision made to protect the slope for the upcoming super-G races. While Wednesday’s sessions proceeded as planned, organizers predicted that elevated temperatures and more rain would make it difficult to maintain optimal conditions for the races. The cancellation aimed to ensure that the races on Friday, Saturday and Sunday would be held under ideal circumstances.

Lara Gut-Behrami is currently leading the women’s overall standings, with a 69-point lead over her closest competitors in super-G. She also holds a 19-point advantage over Sofia Goggia in downhill and a 68-point lead over Stephanie Venier. In contrast, Marco Odermatt has just clinched his third consecutive overall championship and giant slalom title. He now leads by 81 points in super-G and 42 points in downhill.
