Season's best climbers of the 2014 FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup tour Ester Ledecka (CZE) and Lukas Mathies (AUT) secured their career's first in the second parallel giant slalom race of this winter which was staged in Rogla, Slovenia, today.
Special way of public bib draw: The top-16 men and ladies of the PGS World Cup had to showcase their skills on ice in Rogla tonight in order to receive their starting bib for tomorrow's second parallel giant slalom of the season.
The second parallel giant slalom of the current FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup season scheduled for next Saturday, January 18, is characterised by the battle for national Olympic team spots. The world's best raceboarders will get their last chance in Rogla, Slovenia, to bring forward some more arguments for their nomination for the 2014 Olympic Winter Games. But the battle for the Sochi tickets is not everything the riders have in mind as the FIS Alpine Snowboard World Cup tour is also entering crunch mode with the penultimate stop of this winter.
