Today in sport 5th January 2014

Today see's the sixth round of the UCI world Cyclo-Cross World Championship coming from Rome. You can even watching it on a live YouTube stream from 12:30 GMT.

In Winterberg, Germany the 4-man bob continues from yesterday as well as the 2-women bob (heat 1 and heat 2). In race one German world champion Max Arndt drove a near perfect run to take the lead off Steven Holcomb USA. Holcomb however became the second American to crash in competition following Cory Butner's tip over in heat 1. However the shock was that the young 23-year-old German pilot Francisco Friedrich climbed up to take the silver medal behind Arndt. But new race today and new points up for grabs.

There are 22 women's teams up for the race today on the same course.

In quick succession from yesterday in ski jumping the men take on the final of the Four Hills when they move to Bischofshofen.

In Alpine Skiing the Italian resort of Bormio is playing host to both the men and women's slalom today. There are only 2 points separating top two women at the moment with Mikaela Shiffrin USA having the narrowest of margins over Mariles Schild of Austria. For the men Mario Matt AUT has a more comfortable lead in the world cup over Mattias Hargin SWE then a tie for third between Austrian Marcel Hirscher and Italy's Patrick Thaler
