Bormio (Italy) – The second supergiant slalom of the Ski World Cup in Bormio has been canceled. The race was to start today at 11:30, it will not take place in the interest of the safety of the competitors due to the poor condition of the piste after the ice.

It rained heavily in Bormio on Wednesday evening and the wet slope froze overnight. According to the SID agency, Stelvia became an ice rink this morning, and conditions subsequently worsened the high temperatures.

The super-giant slalom planned for today was canceled for the second time. It was originally supposed to go a month ago in Lake Louise, where it could not take place due to heavy snowfall. The last chance to replace this super-G will be after the Olympic Games in early March in Kvitfjell.

In the last two days, both speed races scheduled for the long-term calendar have been completed in Bormio. Tuesday’s downhill was won by home Italian Dominik Paris, Wednesday’s super-G Nor Aleksander Aamodt Kilde.

The Men’s World Cup will continue on January 6 with a slalom in Zagreb, with speed specialists waiting for the downhill run at the legendary Lauberhorn in Wengen in mid-January.
