After finishing second fastest in qualifying yesterday, the Olympic Winter Institute of Australia (OWIA)/New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) athlete won both her quarter final and semi-final today.
Brockhoff’s second placing also sees her move from sixth to fourth in the overall World Cup standings.
It’s been a good few weeks for Brockhoff with strong results, including a fourth placing at the X-Games three weeks ago.
“I’m really happy that I’m climbing up the rankings and in particular with the progression I’ve had over the last few weeks,” Brockhoff said.
“I’ve been working hard with my coaching staff on my riding; they have been incredible coaches, and my board technician has done an amazing job on all my boards. They feel very fast and consistent,” Brockhoff added.
In the Men’s, Alex “Chumpy” Pullin and Jarryd Hughes both cruised through qualifying on Saturday, and progressed to the semi-finals, where Hughes finished second, therefore qualifying for the big final, and Pullin finished sixth in his semi, which saw him qualify for the small final.
Pullin put in a very good run in the small final, crossing the line in first place, to finish the World Cup event in seventh place overall.
Hughes, who has been in good form after winning Gold at the X-Games, finished in sixth place in the big final.
Snowboard Cross Head Coach, Ben Wordsworth was pleased with their performances, saying they were both unlucky to not finish higher up the leaderboard.
“Chumpy and Jarryd raced well today, but were unlucky to get caught up in traffic,” Wordsworth said.
“Chumpy won the small final which was great, and unfortunately Jarryd got caught up the back in the big final to finish sixth.”
