Volcom Banked Slalom 2018

Last weekend, the high-rollers of international snowboarding arrived at Kaprun, Austria, for the annual Volcom Banked Slalom. The event, which is held on a beautifully sculpted banked course high-up on the Kitzsteinhorn glacier, attracts a great crowd with a good mix of current and ex-professional and everyday snowboarders, all hoping to take home the prestigious winner's title. Amplid's Peter Bauer, a safe bet for any banked slalom event, raced in the over 50s category and ended-up on the top of the podium once again. If he'd managed to sustain his qualifying speed in the finals, he might have even made the podium in the overall category!
