Season's third Parallel Slalom in Moscow
The third parallel slalom of the 2013 FIS Snowboard World Cup will be staged in Moscow on February 23. As it's still unsure if the cancelled PSL event of the 2014 Sochi rehearsal can be run this season, the race in the Russian capital is most likely the last parallel slalom of this winter and thus the decisive one for the discipline World Cup.
As a result, the expected showdown will be even more exciting as local Organisers have once again build a massive ramp, this time on the areal of the All-Russian Exhibition Centre, thus providing another in-city-highlight also featuring flood light finals.
Reigning Parallel World Cup title champion Patrizia Kummer has the best chances to win another Globe as the Swiss racers sits in first of the Parallel Slalom World Cup ranking with 1,240 points. However, Amelie Kober (GER, 1,200) is only 40 points behind. And also Austrian speed queens Julia Dujmovits (1,090) and Marion Kreiner (1,060) are still within reach.
On the men's side, the final duel for the title is an even closer one. Zan Kosir (SLO) and Roland Fischnaller (ITA) have both collected 1,600 points so far. According to this, it's very likely that one of them will take home a career' first World Cup title although Andreas Prommegger (AUT, 1,160) and Aaron March (ITA, 1,050) still have some fighting chance.
