FIS ANC Boarder Cross Decided!
The FIS Australia New Zealand Snowboard Cross Championships were decided on the Hotham Boarder Cross Course this week.
Sixty-two competitors battled it out down for a place on the podium, in two races over two days.
Day one saw ideal racing conditions on good to firm snow with the front runners starting to show. The snow softened up over day two, though saw faster race times as a result, with most competitors shaving off a few seconds of their times.
Aussie Olympians Belle Brockhoff and Alex "Chumpy" Pullin took first places in the senior divisions, crossing the finish line with times of 1:04.46 and 0:59.35 seconds respectively. Placegetters Karen Iwadare, Cassandra Fortune, Cam Bolton and Matt Thomas pushed through to get a spot on the podium.
In the grom division, Hotham up-and-coming local, Carter Mills, took out first place in the male group while Georgia Crisp took first in the female group. These two will be ones to watch in the future.
