Junior World Champs Snowboard Cross
When : 9 a.m. Sun, 22nd August 2010
Where : Cardrona
There is a schedule change to the Snowboard Cross. Both the qualifiers and finals will now be held on Sunday 22 August at Cardrona which means an adjustment in the timing. Qualifiers will start at 8.30am with finals starting at 1.00pm with an expected finish time of 2.00pm.
In October 2009 the International Ski Federation (FIS) awarded the 2010 Snowboard and Freestyle Junior World Championships to Snow Sports New Zealand, marking the first time a FIS World Championship will be staged in New Zealand, and also the first time that snowboarding and freestyle skiing will share the same stage in a World Championship.
A full slate of snowboard disciplines will be showcased during the event for boys and girls ages 20-under, including halfpipe, snowboard-cross, parallel giant slalom, parallel slalom, big air and slopestyle.
In the freestyle skiing competitions, halfpipe, slopestyle and ski cross will comprise the disciplines organised for the 2010 FIS Junior World Championships.
This will be the first time that ski slopestyle has been included in a FIS Junior World Championship.
Competitors race in groups of four with the top two going onto the next round. The course consists of a combination of jumps, turns and other terrain features. It is high speed and guarantees lots of thrills and spills!
