Canada~Snowboard in collaboration with the World Snowboard Federation (WSF) hosted the Para-Snowboard World Cups 2012 Grand Finale this week in Alberta, Canada. In the standing men and women categories, Bibian Mentel (NED) and Evan Strong (USA) took home each two (2) World Cup titles and grabbed the overall Champion titles for the WSF Para-SBX 2011-2012 season.


In the sitting category, Sam Danniels (CAN) also took home double golds across both World Cups, however, Ravi Drugan (USA) was crowned the overall sit-skisnowboard Champion for the WSF Para-SBX 2011-2012 season. Wesley Sebold (USA) won the visually impaired category both days.

All the winning riders praised the Canadian snowboarder cross course as one of the top courses of this season. Credit was given particularly to the technical features, the fast pace and steep pitches. "This course was actually more difficult than the x-games course as it was one of the steepest courses I have ever been in" commented Strong after the race, " this is a course that pushes the sport to a new level and it is cool to see that we look and ride like boardercross racers".


The WSF Para-Snowboard World Cups were successfully integrated into the Canadian Snowboard (able-body) Nationals with the Para-Snowboarders ripping down the same course as all the other athletes. "Although the course was really challenging it was great to see the para athletes tackling the features as well as the able-bodied riders" said Mentel after the race. " I am already looking forward to next season as this season has shown such a progression in all of the Para-Snowboard categories".
