Olympic champion Clement Noel leads before heavy rain cancels World Cup slalom with 31 starters

A heavy rainstorm forced the cancellation of the men’s World Cup slalom in Bansko, Bulgaria after 31 starters in the opening run. The race was led by Olympic champion Clement Noel, with Norwegian racer Timon Haugan and Henrik Kristoffersen finishing in second and third place, respectively. Despite efforts to improve the track conditions, the International Ski and Snowboard Federation ultimately decided to call off the event. It remains uncertain if the race will be rescheduled.

In other news, poor weather has also resulted in the cancellation of a slalom in Aspen on March 3 in the United States. The rain during the race and wet snow in the morning softened the Tomba course, making it difficult to maintain a competitive pace. After eight racers, no one was able to finish within two seconds of Noel’s lead, indicating a significant time difference for a slalom race.

Despite this setback, there are still more events on tap for alpine skiing enthusiasts. The next two slaloms are scheduled to take place in Palisades Tahoe on Feb. 25 and Kvitfjell in Norway next weekend. More information about AP skiing can be found at .
