Publish date:

OBERHOFEN, Switzerland, Jan. 16, 2004 (AP) -- A women's World Cup downhill was rescheduled for the Austrian resort of Haus im Ennstal after being called off at the beginning of the season.

The race will take place Jan. 30 and will be followed by another downhill and a slalom on the following two days, the international federation said Friday.

The race originally had been planned as part of a combined event - in which times from a downhill and one-run slalom are added - in Lech, Austria. Organizers, however, were unable to complete work on the finish area in time.
