BANSKO, Bulgaria (AP) — A women's World Cup downhill was canceled because of strong winds blowing across the Banderitsa course on Saturday.

The decision to scrub the penultimate women's downhill of the season was made after the original start time was postponed three times due to winds gusting up to 80 mph.

The International Ski Federation did not immediately announce if the race would be made up at a later date.

In both training sessions on Thursday and Friday, Germany's Maria Hoefl-Riesch led overall World Cup leader Lindsey Vonn of the United States.

The super-G is still scheduled to be held Sunday.
