“It was great to meet a group of kids that had so much energy. They asked a lot of good questions and were really interested in getting to know the sport. Hopefully they come watch the race on Wednesday,” said Rob Fagan, the oldest Canadian (35 years) to enter tomorrow's qualifiers.

According to the local OC Fagan can be pleased as some 350 school kids will be transported to the World Cup venue at Wednesday to cheer for their national riders and al the other international racers.

“It was a fun afternoon. The organizing committee put on a video of snowboard cross highlights which was great. Then we answered questions and gave away some UnderArmour prizing. I think the kids had a good time. Maybe one day one of them will be on the National Team,” stated Dan Csokonay.
