Bad Gastein takes over Jauerling Parallel Slalom
The Parallel Slalom World Cup in Jauerling, which got postponed just a few days ago, will be re-scheduled in Bad Gastein, Austria, on January 10, 2014. As a result, the next weekend will bring two parallel slalom races of the Alpine Snowboard World Cup in the Pongau region as Bad Gastein will also host the PSL event as scheduled on Sunday, January 12, 2014, on the Bucheben slope.
While the first competition on Friday will be held in the single run format (start 12:45 PM CET), the finals of the best 16 ladies and men of second race on Sunday will be organised in the re-run format (start 1 PM CET).
Due to the replacement of the Jauerling race, Bad Gastein underlines his status as one of Austria's main snowboard strongholds. The two events will be the 23rd and 24th World Cup races organised since 2001.
However, Sunday will also bring the first World Cup title decision as the small Crystal Globe for the PSL World Cup will be awarded, too, as there are no more parallel slaloms scheduled for the running season.
