FIS: Zagreb races moved to Santa Caterina; Zauchensee for St Anton

Upcoming World Cup slalom races for women and men in Zagreb have been cancelled there owing to mild weather and moved to the Italian venue of Santa Caterina, the ruling body FIS said on Monday.

The women's race originally set for January 3 will now take place January 5, while the men's race is scheduled as planned for January 6.

Santa Caterina also hosts a men's downhill Tuesday.

Earlier Monday, the FIS said that the Austrian resort of Zauchensee will take over the January 9 and 10 women's races cancelled in St Anton. The regular downhill will now be a sprint race on a shorter course with two runs, followed by a super-g the next day.

Parallel slalom races set for January 1 in Munich were meanwhile cancelled a few weeks ago owing to the spring-like temperatures.
