Foss-Solevåg had a lead of 49 hundredths down to Swiss Roman Zenhaeusern in second place, and was thus very well placed to take his second slalom victory in a row.
He never got the opportunity to do so, because after only 19 runners had sat downhill within an hour, the jury decided to cancel the race. By then, the organizer had worked hard to make the trail ready for the remaining runners.
– Due to the unfavorable conditions and for reasons of safety and justice, the jury has decided to cancel the current slalom for men in Zagreb, writes the International Ski Federation (FIS) on Twitter.
Henrik Kristoffersen, on the other hand, made a couple of big mistakes, and was 2.89 seconds behind Foss-Solevåg. Timon Haugan, Lucas Braathen and Alexander Steen Olsen never managed to put out from the start.
