FOG, HIGH WINDS FORCE POSTPONEMENT OF MEN’S RACE

SHARE FOG, HIGH WINDS FORCE POSTPONEMENT OF MEN’S RACE

The men's World Cup super-G race was postponed Saturday because of fog and high winds and rescheduled for today.

Race organizers said swirling winds blew up loose snow, creating a hazard for skiers already imperiled by fog. More than 8 inches of snow fell Friday in this Alpine resort.After two attempts to start the race, organizers decided to scrub it. Its rescheduling caused organizers to postpone a giant slalom set for Sunday. No new date has been announced for that event.

A slalom is set for Monday night in nearby Sestriere, Italy.

The super-G scheduled for Saturday was originally set for Val d'Isere last weekend.
