Ben Tudhope has added another accolade to his 2019 achievements, taking out second place in the first World Para-snowboard World Cup of the northern winter in the Netherlands overnight (14 November).

The two-day competition – held at SnowWorld Landgraaf, an impressive indoor facility – commenced the 2019-2020 World Cup season.

After his first run in the men’s banked slalom SB-LL2, Tudhope was ranked 18th overall, but in his second run, he knocked an impressive 12.25 seconds off his first effort, skyrocketing into first place.

Unfortunately, Finnish rival Matti Suur-Hamari bettered Tudhope’s time, resulting in a second place finish overall in the lower limb category.

Fellow Aussie Sean Pollard contested the men’s banked slalom SB-UL, finishing seventh.
