Due to weather and snow conditions, the FIS opted to cancel the final men’s speed race of the season in Kvitfjell, Norway and the super G standings prior to Sunday held as the final top three of the season. As it stood, Switzerland’s Mauro Caviezel led the super G overall – three points ahead of Austria’s Vincent Kriechmayr in second, and 29 points over Norway’s Aleksander Kilde in third. Despite the race cancellation, the FIS still held an awards ceremony in the finish to celebrate the men’s season in the discipline.

Caviezel’s super G globe was the final globe awarded in both men’s and women’s speed disciplines, completing a Swiss sweep of the field. On Saturday in Kvitfjell, Beat Feuz was awarded the downhill crystal globe, a title he had clinched prior to the start of the race. Their teammate, Corinne Suter, clinched both the downhill and super G crystal globes in wake of World Finals cancellation in Cortina.

If the schedule holds, the final races of the World Cup are scheduled to run in Are, Sweden for the women and Kranjska Gora, Slovenia for the men, over the upcoming weekend, March 13th through 15th.
