Austrian resort Saalbach-Hinterglemm will provide the setting for the latest International Ski Federation (FIS) Alpine Ski World Cup for men, with downhill and super-G events due to take place over the coming two days.

The downhill is scheduled to be held tomorrow and will be followed by the super-G on Friday (February 14).

Switzerland's Beat Feuz currently tops the overall men's downhill standings with 520 points.

He holds a 136-point lead over nearest challenger Dominik Paris of Italy, while Norway's Aleksander Aamodt Kilde is a further 77 behind in third place.

Today saw Feuz rank 17th in downhill training, which was won by fellow Swiss Ralph Weber in 1 min 26.43sec.

Home skiers Christian Walder and Christoph Krenn completed the top three in 1:26.82 and 1:26.86, respectively.

Leading the way in the men's super-G overall standings is Austria's Matthias Mayer with 264 points.

He is followed by a trio on 236 points – Norway's Kjetil Jansrud, Austria's Vincent Kriechmayr and Kilde.

The event in Saalbach-Hinterglemm replaces the FIS Alpine Ski World Cup that was set to take place in Yanqing in China on Saturday and Sunday (February 15 and 16) before being called off due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Organisers said that because of the spread of the virus, safety must come first.
