Zagreb, no slalom

High temperatures and strong winds still blowing in the race area have forced organizers of the second World Cup women’s slalom of the season scheduled in Zagreb (the sixth in total) to cancel the event.

FIS has not yet announced whether the event will be rescheduled in the coming weeks; the calendar still offers specialty stages in Flachau (Tuesday, Jan. 12), Splinderuv Mlyn (Sunday, Jan. 29) and Are (Saturday, March 11), before the finals in Soldeu.

It is Austria’s Marcel Hirscher who holds the record for the most victories in the overall Ski World Cup standings: he has put as many as eight in his trophy cabinet. In second place, with five, is Marc Girardelli, who chose to race in the colors of Luxembourg. Third place for a trio of aces: in fact, with four successes are our Gustav Thoeni, Switzerland’s Pirmin Zurbriggen and Austria’s Hermann Maier. At three is the phenomenal Swede Ingemar Stenmark and the American Phil Mahre.
