World Cup dual cancelled due to weather

Round two of the Tissot-UCI World Cup dual series in Vars, France, was cancelled Saturday due to inclement weather and a rider protest of conditions. Severe thunderstorms and hail forced officials to cancel the event, making it the first time in the World Cup’s 11-year history that a finals event was cancelled. The weather wasn’t expected to affect Sunday’s downhill race.
