World Cup downhill training canceled due to snow

BEAVER CREEK, Colo. (AP) -- The second men's World Cup downhill training session was canceled Wednesday due to heavy overnight snowfall.

The forecast wasn't much better throughout the day, leading race organizers to call it off. A downhill training session scheduled for Tuesday also was scratched because of travel issues with some teams that couldn't arrive in time from Lake Louise, Alberta.

The racers will try to squeeze in a training run on Thursday, with the snow tapering off but the temperatures expected to remain bitterly cold.

Because of the weather, the race jury has already elected to flip-flop the downhill and super-G races. The downhill will now be Friday and the super-G on Saturday. The giant slalom will still be held on Sunday.
