The second downhill of the Men's Alpine Skiing World Cup scheduled for Saturday in Kitzbühel has been canceled due to "weather conditions and the state of the piste", the International Ski Federation (FIS) announced.

The FIS must decide this Saturday morning on Sunday's program, which was initially reserved for a super-G.

After three days of clear weather, the Tyrolean resort and its Hahnenkamm (Rooster's Ridge) massif woke up in fog and light snowfall on Saturday.

On Friday, the Swiss Beat Feuz won in the first descent, his first success in Kitzbühel after four second places.

The race was stretched over nearly three hours due to the interruptions due to the wind but also to two heavy falls including that, terrible at the reception of the last jump, of the Swiss Urs Kryenbühl, who suffers from a concussion, of a fracture of the right collarbone and a torn ligaments in the right knee.
