The Olympic winter has always been a crucial one. However, the 2014 season seems to be a very painful for a lot of riders, too.
Eva Samkova (CZE) and Omar Visintin (ITA) won the second race of the double snowboard cross event at Vallnord-Arcalís, Andorra, today.
Dominique Maltais (CAN) and Trevor Jacob (USA) have triumphed in the first of two snowboard cross races at the debut of Vallnord-Arcalís as FIS Snowboard World Cup host.
What was ushering in yesterday during the training finally came true today. A true snowboard legend is back on the World Cup circuit and ready to give it a shot in the fight for an Olympic team spot.
There have been a few crashes in the past events of the FIS Snowboard Cross World Cup tour and with the 2014 Olympic Winter Games around the corner, it is time for a brief update on the injured athletes and other names who are coming back to business this weekend in Andorra – or not.
An ideal setting for snowboard cross has been found. Vallnord-Arcalís is a hidden gem of free ride, tucked into the Pyrenees mountains of Andorra.
