OBERHOFEN, Switzerland — The International Ski Federation says a women's super-G race that was canceled twice won't be replaced on the World Cup schedule.

The decision leaves Lindsey Vonn, the four-time super-G title winner, only two races to overhaul Anna Fenninger's 32-point lead in the standings.

Fenninger, the Olympic and world champion in super-G, leads after earning 100 points by winning on Monday in Bansko, Bulgaria.

Two days earlier, a replacement super-G for a race canceled in January in Bad Kleinkirchheim, Austria, was also the victim of poor weather.

The remaining scheduled super-G races are in Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Germany, this weekend and at the March 18-22 finals week in Meribel, France.
