The Slalom race due to take place on Sunday the 14th of December at Val d’Isere in France has been cancelled for safety reasons.
Strong winds have forced the race organisers to cancel the second slalom race of the season, rather than risk injury to competitors.
After the first slalom race of the season in Levi, Finland, Jean-Baptiste Grange leads the slalom championship. The Frenchman was looking to continue his good form on home snow, which saw the 23-year-old achieve a top twenty finish in the giant slalom and achieve a second place finish in the super combined.
Second in the slalom championship sits experienced American Bode Miller, who will perhaps be happier about the cancellation, considering his poor form this weekend when he failed to finish both the Super G and Super Combined races and only managed a 24th place the Giant Slalom.
Currently in third spot in the Slalom championship rankings sits Austrian Mario Matt, another athlete who did not have the best of weekends, having failed to qualify for the Giant Slalom.
The championship now moves on to Val Gardena, Italy, on the 17th of December.
