Despite the snow of the weekend warm temperatures are set to return to the Alps. This has led FIS to cancel next weekend’s parallel GS events in Lech, Austria.
Lech-Zurs was to have hosted the World Cup Parallel GS races on Saturday November 12th (women’s event) and Sunday November 13th (men’s event).
It will be the third weekend in a row that World Cup racing has been affected, with the women’s GS race cancelled in Soelden and the downhill races from Zermatt to Cervinia for both men and women.
- First World Cup race of the season cancelled due to bad weather
- Zermatt to Cervinia World Cup Downhills called off
The International Ski Federation, FIS, has decided the parallel events for women and men cannot go ahead.
Due to the fact that the cold weather during the last days were unfortunately to late and the still unfavorable forecast, Lech-Zürs woman’s and men’s parallel events are cancelled. #fisalpine pic.twitter.com/ON1P7LjlWd
