Women’s Zermatt to Cervinia Downhill Races Cancelled


Last weekend the men were unable to race due to bad weather. This weekend the same has happened for the women. NEW

Saturday’s race was called off due to strong winds and there seemed a certain inevitability about the announcement on Sunday morning.

We reported on the cancellation of the men’s event last weekend:

Last year the racing didn’t go ahead as there was not enough snow.

The 3.8km (2.3-mile) Gran Becca was designed by Swiss former racer Didier Defago.

It starts near Zermatt at an altitude of about 3,700m and crosses the border to finish in Italy at Laghi Cime Bianche at 2,835m.

Racers, fans and organisers will be hoping in 2024 it is third time lucky.
