Alpine Skiing 2020 - 2021 Discussion Thread

Recommended Posts

Typical story of the last 10 years or so - Matej Vidović and Ida Štimac got removed from the Croatian ski team.

 

Basically you can't stay in the Croatian team unless you have some strong personal connections with the corrupted leadership, or if you have some really good results (but even then the chance of staying on the team is like 50-50).

 

But seriously, Vidović was recently the Europa Cup slalom champion and has been a regular part of the WC top 30 for the past three seasons. Ida Štimac is not even 20, but of course the leadership expected her to already be an international star, no doubt. CroSki is the federation I easily hate the most.:facepalm:

Apparently at the headquarters of the FIS they ran out of vodka, damn covid. Btw, without drink, they made a right decision... All the stage in the parallel events will be on two run.

yeah, now the format will feature 16 skiers qualifying to the knockout stage, which is contested over 2 runs in each round from 1/8 finals to the Big Final...

 

from FIS website:

 

"In terms of rule changes, the Parallel format has been adapted also taking into consideration the athletes’ recommendations.

 

The Parallel race will have a run and re-run format to ensure a fair competition.

To keep the format short and interesting, the parallel race will start from the round of 16 (not 32 as until now) with the 16 fastest athletes from the qualification race. 

When both gender are present, the losing competitors in the quarter finals will be ranked from 5 to 8 according to their total time (run and re-run), without having to race for their position.

 

Finally, in terms of Parallel quota, for the season 2020/21, the nation’s higher quota, whether from WCSL or PWSL, will be valid.

 

All the proposals mentioned above are subject to the approval of the Council."

 

EDIT: fixed the wrong comparison with the Snowboard PSL and PGS...;)

Did snowboarding get rid of their terrible single run format? Because that would be great news.

 

Anyway, glad to hear the FIS fixed the single biggest issue with their parallel alpine races.

ops...I think I made a bit of confusion between the section "starting from the top 16 of the qualification" and the "2-run question"...

 

unfortunately, Snowboard has not changed their unfair system...:facepalm:

 

maybe I was the one who got a little drunk last night...:rofl: :facepalm:
