After an epic start to the 2019 winter in Hakuba, Japan, the world’s best are making their way across the Pacific to North America for the second competition of FWT19 in the legendary resort of the Canadian Rockies, Kicking Horse, Golden BC. It will be ON this afternoon (Euro time). 8:45AM Golden BC time MST (4:45 PM CET)
The face has been closed this season. With bluebird conditions, around -12 degrees and practically no wind it's looking amazing!
Solid performances in every category by an insane line-up of riders set the stage for mind blowing debut to the season opener in Hakuba. Podium finishers like Markus Eder (ITA-1st Place) Tanner Hall (USA-2nd Place), Gigi Rüf (AUT-2nd Place), Arianna Tricomi (ITA-1st Place) and Anna Orlova (RUS-1st Place) will be looking to carry their momentum into Kicking Horse and earn more crucial points in the world title race. However, they will surely be challenged by the strong line-up of riders hoping for better results in BC local favorites Nicole Kelly (CAN) and Logan Pehota (CAN) the event wildcard.
Let's get ready for a great show and solid performances of the athletes!
