LENZZERHAYDE, Switzerland (AP) – Other alpine skiing competitions were canceled on Thursday due to bad weather, with Petra Vlhova remaining the front-runner for her first World Cup title ahead of Lara Gut-Behrami.
The men’s and women’s superpowers in the World Cup final were canceled’s final landings a day later, as he failed to start on the Silvano Beltrametti slope.
In the Reserve program with no spare days, Vlhova և Alexis Pinturalt closed out in the giant slalom of his choice this weekend to win overall titles.
The women’s superpower G was first delayed for 90 minutes to clear the fog, the race staff cleared the fresh snow, and then it was canceled after 11am.
The cancellation on Thursday undermines Gut-Behrami’s chances of catching Vlhova in the overall standings. This season, the Swiss skier won four Super Cups of the World Cup.
In the last two competitions, Vlhova needs only the top 15 finals to win the Crystal Giant World as the overall champion. He would be the first Slovakian champion in the history of the 54-year-old World Cup.
Pinturault is just 31 points ahead of Marco Odermatt, the groundbreaking star of the men’s season who was a contender for the Super-G race. Wins are worth 100 points.
Odermatt was the runner-up in the Super-G standings behind Vincent Kretschmeier, who was crowned champion on Thursday. The Austrian rider added the crystal globe of his first career to the gold medals in both speed races at last month’s World Championships.
The final week continues on Friday, in parallel with the competition, with the Nations Team event being a little-loved event that, according to some, should have been replaced by the Delayed Mountains.
