Perfect conditions on Lake Louise SBX training day
It's been a mostly sunny training day at Lake Louise, host of the season's second snowboard cross World Cup.
With the riders finally having overcome the jet-lag, the world's best tackled the 1,100 metres long track and its nearly 25 features – all build by two-time Olympian shaper Jeff Ihaksi.
And as always when the former Canadian World Cup athlete designs a course, riders love what they get.
Check out this training run video by Mick Dierdroff (USA) for a better overview:
With just a few minor changes left including the rollers in front of turn three, everything seems to be perfectly set for the qualifiers going down today at 10:40 AM MST (6:40 PM CET) for the men and 1:40 PM (9:40 PM CET) for the ladies.
