Both the ladies’ and men’s World Cup slalom races originally scheduled in Zagreb, Croatia have officially been rescheduled in Bormio, Italy as follows:

Ladies’ slalom Jan. 5, 2014 — start times TBD

Men’s slalom Jan. 6, 2014 — start times 2:45 & 6:10 CET.

Although no start times have yet been decided for the women’s race, it will likely be a daytime event while the men’s second run will be held under lights. The races were relocated to Bormio after warm temperatures made it impossible to properly prepare the piste for competition in Zagreb.

The Italian village is an annual stop on the men’s downhill circuit, but Bormio last hosted a World Cup slalom during Finals in 2008.
