SCC 2011: Round 1 Heat 1 by BluebottleFlyer SCC 2011: Round 1 Heat 1 by BluebottleFlyer
It's time...the first race of the 2011 Snowboard Cross Contest. Only the top two finishers will progress to the next round, so, as always, on with the action...

Heat 1
Linda Retriever-- > ~WaggonerCartoons
Danbuster -- > =DCLeadboot
Candy --> *FAC-AgentC
Pierre Le Roux -- > *shanejensen

It was quite a start to the 2011 contest indeed, with a full grid of debutantes, and no clear favourite to take this heat. Straight from the off though, Linda Retriever and the Frenchman Pierre Le Roux were the front-runners, neck and neck for pretty much the whole length of the course. Linda certainly lived up to her breed's speedy nature, while Pierre seemed quite at ease on his board, much as he usually does with throwing pies.
Candy was hoping to fare better than her fellow Kickline gal Chelsea did in last year's contest, but she fell victim to her own confusion at the very start, completely forgetting about the blue track boundaries and sailing hopelessly off course. Once she did suss out the correct track, she was way off the pace of the leaders.
There was a more promising start for Danbuster, however he was simply unable to match the pace of Linda and Pierre, and soon fell back. His race went from bad to worse after he misjudged a corner and crashed quite spectacularly. As a result, Candy overtook him, having managed to catch up with him, and he was too battered and bruised to carry on.
In the end, it was Linda who took the spoils, but only by a whisker, as Pierre kept it very close indeed. Candy eventually took third place.
