A day of tricky Slalom at ERC


The CZE 1 Open Men’s team have proven themselves masters of slalom. Their first run was a clear run AND the second fastest of the day (159.98). Their second run was the fastest of the day (158.54) with only a 5 sec penalty! An excellent performance.

It was a hard course with the lowest penalty points amongst the women’s categories being 20 secs from RUS 1 which claimed them the Gold in the Open Women’s category. Gates 2 and 3 seemed to be the most difficult and resulting in the most 50s.
