Last weekend in Finland, Hanko continued the competition for the European cup. Finally also the winner of last season Janis Preiss got involved and easily won the slalom discipline.
On Saturday the weather was perfect for competition thus there were rather many races in slalom discipline. 12 races and one winner in all of them – Janis Preiss. Remarkable results showed also the 15 years old Finnish rider Joel Grönqvist – second in slalom and third in course! Hope to see him in the next event in Latvia where he could compete with Latvian Mikus Bēvalds for the highest position in the youth group.
