FIS plans rule adjustment for speed races

At the FIS Congress at the end of May, a new regulation for the allocation of starting numbers for speed races is to be decided. This stipulates that the ten best drivers in the respective discipline rating with the numbers 6 to 15 go onto the slopes. Until now, the first ten in the Downhill and Super-G rankings were each given the odd digits from 1 to 19. Due to the lack of training, the person with the number 1 in the Super-G was often used as a guinea pig.

The athletes in places 11 to 20 in the discipline ranking would now receive the numbers 1 to 5 and 16 to 20 and no longer the even numbers between 2 and 20 as before.

All numbers of both groups are to be drawn at random in order to create greater fairness. However, the decision is not final yet. (che)
