Alpine Ski European Cup

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Alpine Ski Europe Cup is an international series of competitions in alpine skiing organized by the FIS , which is held during the winter half-year in the northern hemisphere. In addition to the Nor-Am Cup, it represents the most important part of the substructure of the Alpine Ski World Cup , which is primarily intended to give young European drivers the opportunity to gain experience on an international level. The first European Cup was held in the 1971/1972 winter season after the decision to host this racing series was made at the FIS Congress in May 1971. From 1972/73 the competition was changed: the system was adapted to the World Cup; In the first year the first 15 were scored, now only the first 10 (with the same number of points as in the World Cup) and the best 5 results in each discipline counted for the overall evaluation.

In contrast to the World Cup, all races take place in Europe . The five different disciplines in which the racers can collect points are the same as in the World Cup: Downhill , Slalom , Giant Slalom , Super-G (since 1985/1986) and Super Combination (since 2005/2006). As in the World Cup, an overall winner is determined, and the FIS point system also applies here .

The overall winners of the European Cup will receive a fixed starting place in all disciplines for the following World Cup season. In addition, the top three of each discipline will receive a fixed World Cup starting place in the respective discipline. Competitors who are already among the top 20 on the World Cup starting list or who do not belong to a European association will not be taken into account. In this case, the next move up in the ranking.
