DB Export Banked Slalom Results

DB EXPORT BANKED SLALOM RESULTS

18 August 2014

The South Island’s largest ski area Treble Cone (Wanaka, New Zealand) hosted the annual DB Export Banked Slalom snowboard event on Saturday the 16th of August, with a strong contingent of riders, great snow, and beautiful blue sky day for racing.

The 2014 event offered a $2000 cash prize pool, including $750 cash for each of the fastest overall male, and the fastest overall female, along with $250 cash for the runners up, trophies for first place, and spot prizes including a Never Summer snowboard.

With the mass of recent snow and great conditions in the Saddle Basin at Treble Cone, the venue looked fantastic, and the natural halfpipe Shooter was set as the course.

‘A solid turn out of local riders from Treble Cone and other Southern Lakes ski areas, along with international riders visiting our great region for training and freeriding set the scene for a fantastic banked slalom event.’ Nick Noble, Treble Cone Marketing Manager.

The female division was won by Kiwi Winter Olympian and snowboard slopestyle specialist Christy Prior, ahead of runner Ash Cowper and in third place Hannah Orchard.

In the male event local rider and Rookie Academy coach Richie Johnstone took out first place in the open division, ahead of Treble Cone snowboard instructor Volker Blepp, and Keith Stubbs in third place.

Treble Cone wishes to thank everyone who competed and supported this event and made it a great day of racing, and the key partners DB Export and Never Summer.

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
