Alpine Skiing World Cup: new season starts
Great skiing is back. Saturday 26 October and Sunday 27 part, according to tradition from the 2. 000 meters of the Tyrolean Rettenbach glacier in Soelden, the world cup season of alpine skiing 2019 / 20. The program includes the giant women's slalom and the giant men's slalom
A season without a World Cup or Olympics but no less important. Among the usual many Italian races on the calendar there will be the grand Finale of the season in Cortina d'Ampezzo from 16 to the 22 March with eight races between men and women on the calendar and the addition of a team trial by country. It will be an important test of the tracks and organization in view of the World Championships that Cortina will host in 2021 and in good also fit for the Olympics of 2026. Also in the next season Italy will host, in addition to those of the Cortina Finals, an important share of competitions
For men the appointments are the 20 is 21 December in Val Gardena with super-G and descent, 22 and 23 December in Alta Badia with giant and parallel giant, 28 e 29 December in Bormio with descent and combined and then January 8 2020 the Campiglio slalom. For women the first Italian stop will be at Sestriere for the 18 is 19 January 2020 with giant and parallel giant
Then the 29 February and March 1 in La Thuile there will be a Super-G and a combined. Among the innovations of the next season, the FIS after various hesitations has decided to focus again not only on the parallel slalom, with more space than the giant one, but also on the combined, specialty that was given to extinction: it came out a calendar dense with well 44 competitions men and 42 women. Just in the combined there will then be a technical novelty by modifying the current formula that benefits slalomists over sprinters. From the next season the first thirty of the fast test will start first in the same order also in the slalom, thus finding themselves under the least compromised snow skis
As in the past season, the two leading Italian athletes will be sprinters: Dominik Paris and Sofia Goggia. All this while three great champions like Lindsey Vonn, Marcel Hirscher and Aksel Svindal will not start after their retirement. In the men's field – where he had dominated for eight consecutive seasons – Hirscher's absence will leave many rivals open spaces for success. In the women's field there will most likely be a new season in the sign of the excessive power of the American Mikaeala Shiffrin decided this time to try to conquer even the world cup downhill.
