Riders from Austria dominated the parallel slalom Europa Cup event in Rogla, Slovenia, penultimate stop of the parallel EC tour.

While Ina Meschik (AUT) claimed victory in the women's event ahead of Swiss racers Julie Zogg and Ladina Jenny, Alexander Payer triumphed in the men's race with Mirko Felicetti (ITA) and Stefan Baumeister (GER) rounding out the podium as respective second and third.

The parallel Europa Cup tour will close out in just a few days as Racines, Italy is slated to host the last two parallel slalom events of the 2015-16 European season on March 26th and 27th.

Thanks to her today's triumph, Meschik is going into the grand finale as odds-on favourite for the EC title while it would be a stroke of bad luck if yesterday's pgs winner Rok Marguc (SLO) wouldn't bring home his comfortable lead.
