Snowboardcross FIS World Championship
Saturday, January 26
Stoneham Mountain Resort
The newest Olympic discipline sees competitors race through a course that features banked turns, terrain changes and jumps. This discipline truly tests a rider’s all-around skills – and nerve. Each rider races the course solo at first, and the fastest times determine the start order for the knock-out rounds. The elimination rounds then see FOUR riders in the start gate at the same time and racing together on the same course, with the fastest two advancing on to each next round. A four-rider final determines the medal positions.
