Two U.S. racers pull out of openers

American racers Sarah Schleper and David Chodounsky will not start this weekend, as planned, in the World Cup season opening giant slalom races in Soelden, Austria.

Schleper, a 32-year old World Cup veteran will have to wait to start her 15th World Cup season due to a tight lower back. She has returned to the United States for treatment in hopes for a quick return to racing.

Chodounsky made the trip to Austria to prepare for this weekend’s races but a knee injury sustained playing soccer will keep him out of his 14th World Cup start.
