On February 3rd and 4th Para-Snowboarders from eight countries will come to Orcieres 1850 to kick off the Para-Snowboard World Cup circuit with two back to back World Cup races. The event is being hosted by Orcieres 1850, the French Snowboard Initiative, My Snowboarding, and the World Snowboard Federation (WSF)
Riders in both the Men and Women Standing categories will race down the Para-Snowboard cross (SBX) course in a “sling shot” (or time trial) format. Each rider will have three “sling shot” runs, with the rider with the fastest combined two runs taking home the gold. With two World Cup races taking place back to back the opportunity to take home two golds is up for grabs and a big lead in the WSF Para-Snowboard World Ranking.
