During the New Year holidays, Krasnoyarsk will host several stages of the Snowboard World Cup. More than 120 athletes will take part in international competitions and will compete in the race for victory in the “snowboard-cross” discipline. The competition will take place from January 7 to January 9.
For the first time in its history Krasnoyarsk will host the stages of the FIS Snowboard World Cup in the discipline “snowboard-cross”. According to the results of the competition, athletes will be selected for the 2022 Olympics.
Note that the stages of the World Cup will be held in Krasnoyarsk from January 7 to 9 at the Sopka cluster. It is already known that more than a hundred snowboarders from 19 countries of the world will participate in the tournament. One of them will be Nikolay Olyunin from Krasnoyarsk.
At the moment, work is underway on the construction of the track at Sopka. As the designer of the track Roman Alekseevsky said, the length of the track will be more than 1 km and will be very dense due to the number of figures.
The Canadian Charles Turcotte, who is the FIS technical consultant, participates in the creation of the track. He believes that already now the track can be called impressive, and it is comparable in complexity to the one that was at the Olympic Games in Sochi and China.
We add that on January 7, the athletes are waiting for the races. The eighth and ninth of January – the final part.
