From KC Gandee
Snowboarding Program Director:
“Richie had two career best finishes in the Hole Shot Tour races here at Sunday River. Hole Shot Tour is the US North American Cup races, one step below World Cup, the highest level of boardercross racing. On day one, Hoge was on the podium in 3rd place with two World Cup racers, both who race professionally. He beat several World Cup racers including two-time Olympic Gold medalist Seth Wescott who has World Cup top 10 finishes this season. Day two Richie and Seth exchanged contact and both went down in a turn, but Hoge finished 8th, his second best finish ever. I can’t emphasize the significance of these finishes considering the level of competition and the fact that they came at home!”

“Adalia raced this week in the FIS Junior World Championships for boardercross in the Czech Republic. This is only Adalia’s 2nd season competing in boardercross. She raced against 43 other women from around the world and placed 34th. Remember this is not a regional, state or national level race. This was the World Championships for athletes under 21 years old!”
