World Cup Competition in Finland This Weekend

J2SkiNews posted Nov-2019

The 2019-20 World cup ski season switches its focus to Finland this weekend with the annual Levi slalom races for both men and women.

These are the first World cup competitions for three weeks since the Solden GS competitions but from, now on contests come thick and fast with something most weekends for the next four months, culminating with the world Cup Finals for alpine events in Cortina d'Ampezzo next March.

Unfortunately a Park & Pipe World Cup event planned for Austria's Stubai glacier this weekend for which four Brits including Sheffield's own James 'Woodsy' Woods were entered has had to be cancelled following the heavy snowfall over the past three weeks, with another metre of snow expected this weekend there as the competition was due to take place.

But Lancaster's Dave Ryding will be starting his world Cup campaign in the Levi slalom on Sunday 24th.

Coverage on Eurosport is due to start soon after 9am on Sunday. Laurie Taylor is also competing.

For the women the competition takes place on Saturday, tomorrow, with Charlie Guest competing for Team GB and Eurosport coverage scheduled to begin at 9.10am.

The first run is scheduled at 9am, the second at noon, on both days.

From next week the focus switches to the speed events and North America with competitions heading to Lake Louise in Canada for the traditional Downhill World Cup season openers and competitions at Killington and Beaver Creek too.
