In the season's last parallel giant slalom which will take place in Sierra Nevada at the World Cup finals on Wednesday, March 20, three title champions will be crowned.

With all decisions guaranteeing a close outcome at the very end.

On the women's side, it's currently very tight between Patrizia Kummer (SUI) and Marion Kreiner (AUT).

Kreiner leads the PGS World Cup race with 2,512 points and is thus ahead of Kummer (2,480).

The Swiss racer for her part is in front in the battle for the Parallel Overall Crystal Globe with 4,170 points with Kreiner breathing down her neck with 3,862 points.

However, both carving queens still have to have an eye on some other rivals for the Crystal Globes.

In the Overall Ranking Caroline Calvé (CAN) and Ekaterina Tudegesheva (RUS) are still within reach.

In the PGS Standings even more riders have a say: Tomoka Takeuchi (JPN), Tudegesheva, Calvé, Nicolien Sauerbreij (NED) and Anke Karstens (GER) are all hoping for their chance to claim the title.
