The boys’s alpine snowboarding World Cup finale at Kranjska Gora on the weekend has been scrapped due to the coronavirus menace, the Worldwide Ski Federation mentioned on Thursday.

“The races in Kranjska Gora will not be replaced on the World Cup calendar and the 2019-2020 season is officially finished,” the federation mentioned, citing well being issues for rivals and spectators.

The ski resort in Slovenia was to host an enormous slalom and a slalom on Saturday and Sunday.

Because of the cancellation, Norway’s Aleksander Kilde wins the World Cup total title from Alexis Pinturault of France and third-placed Norwegian Henrik Kristoffersen.
