New Zealand racers delivered promising results on the international stage over the weekend.
Duncan Campbell (Queenstown) was in Pitzal, Austria for FIS Junior Snowboardcross and achieved a second place and ninth place finish over his two days of racing. Duncan was pleased with his results against a competitive field which included several World Cup riders.
“I had a good day on Saturday, aiming for top 8 but in my last race I got messed up a bit - I thought it was a false start, but it wasn’t so it was all on and I finished in the top 10. So I knew I could do better today (Sunday). All the training came together, it wasn’t until I finished the race in second, with only half a board length in it, that I realised my toe strap had broken!”
Alpine ski racers Adam Barwood (Queenstown), Piera Hudson (Hawke’s Bay) and Willis Feasey (Twizel) were also in action over the weekend, competing at the CU Invitational Jimmy Huega Classic FIS Slalom in Colorado, USA.
Piera posted eighth and ninth place finishes over two days of racing. Adam Barwood and Willis Feasey placed ninth and 17threspectively.
