GARMISCH-PARTENKIRCHEN, Germany ” Dense fog forced organizers to cancel two World Cup races Saturday.

A women’s super G race was scheduled to follow the men’s downhill, but fog shrouded sections of the course and failed to lift.

The women’s super G race was rescheduled for Sunday and will take place before a men’s slalom. There was no immediate decision on whether the men’s downhill would be rescheduled.

The races on the redesigned Kandahar course were seen as a warmups for the World Championship in Val d’Isere that starts Tuesday with a women’s super G.
