This year there are only 2 parallel races in the World Cup calendar. These take place on Thursday and Friday in Lech, Austria. We explain how this special form of competition works this season:
- The knockout races start with the round of sixteen (previously: the sixteenth finals).
- There are (again) 2 runs per lap. Each driver completes the blue and the red course once.
- In the morning (from 10:00 a.m.) the qualification takes place. The qualifying ranking defines the “seeding list” for the knockout races (from 5:45 pm).
On Thursday, SRF will broadcast the women’s knockout runs from 5:35 p.m. live. The next day we will also show the men’s race in Lech live.
- The best 16 of the qualifiers reach the knockout runs. The drivers in the qualifying ranks 17 to 30 have been eliminated, but receive World Cup points (analogous to a normal race). The 31st and 32nd will no longer receive any points.
- The maximum time lag after the 1st run is 0.5 seconds.
The nine-strong Swiss women’s squad is led by Wendy Holdener and Lara Gut-Behrami. The men are missing Marco Odermatt, Justin Murisier and Loïc Meillard, who have corona.
The Swiss contingent in Lech
Men: Tanguy Nef, Gino Caviezel, Marco Reymond, Semyel Bissig, Sandro Simonet, Cédric Noger, Daniele Sette.
