Snowboard Cross Contest 2013: Round 2 Heat 1 by BluebottleFlyer Snowboard Cross Contest 2013: Round 2 Heat 1 by BluebottleFlyer
Round 2 Heat 1
An even playing field fired off the second round, with the two remaining returnees and two of this year's rookies battling each other on the slopes, and it was Snow Sam and Thoronraw who got the quickest starts, although Felix Mendelssohn wasn't too far behind. The same did not apply for Lily, who faltered quite badly, starting off a good way behind the leaders.
As the race progressed, Felix found some more energy and caught up to the snowman/griffin one-two, of which Sam was doing very well to keep Thoronraw's all-fours assault at bay. However, disaster struck two-thirds of the way down the course when Sam overcooked a particularly tight turn, sliding off the track. His mishap was further compounded when seconds later, as he was taking back to the track, Lily approached and turned too late to avoid colliding with the slipped-up snowman. Both boarders, though a little battered up, were able to continue the race, however with their hopes of reaching the final all but ended.
The last leg of the race looked set to be Thoronraw's, however Felix kept up the pace, and with just seconds to go from the finish line, made his move to take the lead, at which point Thoronraw seemed to fall back quite dramatically, suggesting he'd expended too much energy in the early stages of the race. He still booked his place in the final however, behind a jubilant Felix.

I am not surprised Lily did not make it. How do you pick the winners?

Aye, she was unlucky I'm afraid. I decide the winners by rolling a dice.

I guess that's another talent he's got besides his music. :XD:

Just as it looked like Lilly's luck was turning around. Oh, well.

Looks like Thoronraw's unique snowboard stance is no hindrance for him!

Oh noes :iconohnoesplz:, two of the familiar faces lost, now I hope Herpes or Artimus will win. Hal on the other hand would be happy but he is more relieved Willard became the sore loser (literally). I don't think only winning once means another chance to win.

Aye, that's the way it goes - and you're right, just because you win the title once doesn't guarantee you'll win it again.
