Snowboard World Cup cancels third event of season

0 Comments

Snowboard World Cup tour organizers have been forced to cancel a Nov. 17 Big Air event in Stockholm “due to economical reasons” according to the International Ski Federation.

The cancellation is the third of the season, which opened with a New Zealand halfpipe event in August, but won’t continue until next month after a London event prepped for Oct. 27 was also lost due to financial issues. The boys of Big Air will now open their year in Antwerp on Nov. 10.

This news puts a damper on the season, and on early Olympic bids, since World Cup points earned this year will go toward qualifying for the Sochi Games.
