“We are very pleased to be back in Sierra Nevada with the FIS Snowboard Cross World Cup,” said race director Beier after the inspection, “The organiser of two previous SBX World Cups as well as the World Championships of 2017 is not only experienced, but also motivated to create another highlight of the tour. Although the course has been a a tour favourite in past seasons, this year we will look to further improve the track - particularly at the start and in the bottom section.
“Together with the organisers here in Sierra Nevada we are aiming not only for an outstanding and challenging SBX competition, but also a celebration of the sport, the the FIS Snowboard World Cup featured alongside the entertainment, culture, and beauty found in this location just outside the doors of the Alhambra. With the modifications and the new line of the course we will also achieve a better integration of the course within the resort, which will result in a sustainable competition venue for the future and a cross terrain for Sierra Nevada’s daily clients.”
This season’s competition at Sierra Nevada will take place from March 6-7, 2020, with qualifications on the 6th and final on the 7th.
