GRASGEHREN, Germany (AP) — Poor weather conditions forced the cancellation of Saturday's freestyle World Cup ski cross event.

FIS Freestyle says "heavy rain through the night turned to heavy snow early in the morning, making conditions impossible for racing."

The training Friday and qualification sessions were also cancelled because of the weather.

Organizers still hope Sunday's event can go ahead.

Fanny Smith of Switzerland leads the women's standings with 396 points, 95 ahead of Kelsey Serwa of Canada on 301, with Ophelie David of France third on 271.

Another Swiss, Alex Fiva, leads the men's competition with 384 points, followed by compatriot Armin Niederer on 373 and Canadian Brady Leman with 248.
