Jungholz, Austria – Scott “Scoot” Smith earned his first victory of the 2008 season and strengthened his grip on the IGSAWorld Cup Series Championship point standings with a dramatic come from behind pass of fellow Canadian Kevin Reimer on the final straightaway. Alexandre Ulrich from France finished third and Stefan Ruefli from Germany finished in fourth.
Jungholz, Austria - Under wet soggy conditions, qualifying got under way for the Almabtrieb World Cup. Only the Classic Luge and Street Luge classes took their first qualifying runs today. The race organizers decided to push back both runs of Downhill Skateboard qualifying to Friday when hopefully the weather conditions would improve.
