Ovalhe Wins In Argentina
San Luis, Argentina - After two days of intense downhill skate activities, race day at the Snake Skeleton World Cup was an unforgetable experience to every racer who made it into the race from Saturday´s qualifying.
The same tail wind that knocked out 12 riders on Friday morning blew again but with the riders much more prepared after two days of skating. With so many quality contenders making it through from qualifying, it created one awesome race after another. The IGSA Officials had a difficult job on their hands with tight finishes and races only being decided after viewing lots of video images.
