Tudegesheva and March fastest ramp riders
The qualifiers for the season's third parallel slalom race of the FIS Snowboard World Cup staged in Moscow, which is most likely the last one counting for the race for the discipline World Cup title as it's still unclear if the cancelled Sochi race will be re-scheduled, Ekaterina Tudegesheva (RUS) and Aaron March (IT) came out as top qualifiers.
The Russian athlete, who won the Moscow event two years ago and the Italian race boarder who who claimed his so far only World Cup race victory in the Russian capital three years ago will lead the field of the best 16 female and male of the time trials into the knock out rounds scheduled for tonight.
The finals which will be held in a single run format – the second time in history – will kick off at 7:30 PM (4:30 PM CET) under flood lights.
Eurosport 2 will broadcast the head to head duels on the massive scaffolding ramp constructed on the areal of the All-Russia Exhibition Centre live.
And this is how the bracket looks like:
