Michela Moioli (ITA) has triumphed in the second snowboard cross race of the double World Cup event staged at Feldberg, Germany today which also was the final form test for the riders before heading east to compete in the 2018 Olympic Winter Games.
And as it was the ultimate event prior to the big show in South Korea next month, Mother Nature finally did mind her Ps and Qs offering a blue bird sky and superb snow conditions after the last days had seen cloudy, foggy conditions and a lot of fresh snow.
In addition, the stances were packed again like yesterday with the crowd cheering for their local favourites not for nothing as two Germans had made it to the finals.
By snatching her career's ninth, the 22-year-old from Bergamo therefore not only extended her World Cup lead but also her incredible streak of seven consecutive podium finishes of which four out of the last six races have been wins.
“Today, the final was very difficult. I was up against three strong girls from France, it was super cool but a tough fight. I tried to give my best right from the start. We were super close, so I'm super happy about another win.
It's a big confidence boost for sure but the Olympics are a totally different race. We will see what happens,” she explained.
The SBX World Cup tour will now take a break and continue after the Olympic Winter Games in La Molina, Spain from 2 to 3 March 2018.
