The 2014 FIS Snowboard Freestyle World Cup tour concluded with a triumphant day for Sarka Pancochova (CZE) and Mans Hedberg (SWE). Both snowboarders were not only able to clinch the season's last slopestyle contest at Kreischberg, Austria, home of the first ever combined FIS Freestyle Ski & Snowboard World Championships next January, but also claimed the title in both, Slopestyle and Freestyle Overall World Cup due to their first rank today.
The warm weather situation at Kreischberg, venue of the first ever combined FIS Freestyle Ski & Snowboard World Championships in 2015, was responsible for a one hour delay of today's slopestyle qualifiers of the final stop of the 2014 FIS Snowboard Freestyle World Cup tour.
Compared to the Olympic slopestyle course at Sochi, course shaper Alli Zehetner has designed a different line for the season's final of the FIS Snowboard World Cup tour which will take place on March 5 (qualifiers) and 6 (finals) at Kreischberg.
On March 5 and 6, 2014, Kreischberg, Austria, will host the season's final of the FIS Snowboard Freestyle World Cup tour. 80 participants from 18 countries will not only battle for some vital points in the race for the small (Slopestyle World Cup) and big (Snowboard Freestyle Overall World Cup) Crystal Globe.
