First delayed by 30 minutes, the second round of the giant slalom at Semmering was finally canceled.
Strong gusts of wind disrupted the Austrian race schedule. While gusts had already bothered some skiers during the first run, it was really no longer possible to organize a race in the afternoon.
The security conditions were not met. Metal barriers fell, guards flew off, and doors were heckled. The organization had to resolve to cancel what was to be the last giant slalom of 2020. The skiers will not be leaving Austria anytime soon, a slalom is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon if conditions allow.
Slovakian Petra Vlhova set the fastest time in the first act, two and three tenths ahead of ther the Italian Marta Bassino and the Swiss Michelle Gisin. With her number 1 bib, Tessa Worley had to settle for seventh place, at 1 ″ 60.
