Snowboard Cross

In Snowboard Cross, athletes race for medals in a head-to-head format- picture a BMX race on snow. Races feature 4-6 competitors in a race lasting about 80 seconds. The course has jumps, tight turns and banks. It is a very exciting and fast event. The event is scheduled to start on Day 10 of the Winter games.
