First pgs World Cup race Bansko

February 3 marked an historic date as it was the first time a Bulgarian venue played host to a stop of the alpine snowboard World Cup tour.

However, nine years ago, Sofia had become the first venue in history to do so for snowboarding in general.

This gallery brings you the best shots of the pgs which saw local favourite Radoslav Yankov and Swiss Patrizia Kummer triumphing.
