KITZBUHEL, Austria -- Rain and fog have forced organizers to cancel Wednesday's first training session for a World Cup downhill race on the Streif course.

The jury decided the course will be closed for the rest of the day to prevent damage to the slope in Kitzbuhel. A final training session was scheduled for Thursday.

Racers have to take at least one training run before competing in a downhill race.
