After having had an almost perfect dayyesterday at the ISPO Wintergames in Garmisch, right in matters of timing and preparation for the very last bigfinals planned for today, we all got painfully reminded that Snowboarding isand always will be an outdoor sport: Snowfalls during the night and badvisibility did not allow any safe competition today. Due to the fact thatboth competitions, Halfpipe and Boardercross, were run until a very farstage already yesterday, the riders decided to make these results count forthe finals.

Halfpipe: At the men’s, German Daniel Tyrkas (G & S) can celebrate his firstvictory in a Motorola ISF World Pro Tour contest and it seems obvious thathe will rock the party tonight as hard as he rocked the pipe yesterday.Tyrkas, competing in the Tour for the second season now, never made it intothe finals before, so his victory can be considered as a real surprise -even more if you keep in mind how many big names are ranked behind him. Thenext events will prove if he can bring down more of his radical riding incompetitions. Second is Swiss rider Therry Brunner (Sims), and third IngemarBackmann (SWE/Allian), who obviously is coming back with real goodpipe-riding after a series of injuries.The women’s competition was dominated by ISF World Champion MartinaTscharner (SUI/K2) who went off with technically difficult tricks like 540sto 720s and with a lot of amplitude. Second placed was second Swiss riderFabienne Reuteler (Salomon) ahead of Christel Thoresen (NOR/Burton). In thefinals were not less than 4 (out of total 6) Swiss riders, so the answer tothe Scandinavian successes of the previous contests is on the table.

Boardercross: For the same reason, the Boardercross-finals were cancelledentirely. The results of yesterdays Time Trials will count as results.Philippe Conte (FRA/Bluewindow), experienced Boardercross racer and 98/99winner of the Motorola ISF World Pro Tour won with about 1 second ahead offellow Frenchman Xavier Delerue (Burton). Austrian rider Dieter Happ(Burton), also proved very good general riding skills of alpine racers inthe challenging course and ended up third in one of his first bigBoardercross ever.At the women’s it was the leader in the Motorola ISF World Championshipranking, Doris Krings (AUT/Völkl) who succeded over ranked number two, InePötzl (AUT/Bluewindow) Third and best german rider was Katharina “Ena”Himmler.

Due to the delays, today’s Eurosport broadcast was featuring yesterday’sriding, instead of the live broadcast. The great edited show will berepeated next Monday at 12:30 CET. Check it out!
