As the lone Australian in action, Ben Tudhope certainly impressed during the first of his two runs in the Men’s Snowboard Cross SB-LL2 qualification. His first run set the time to beat at 1:02.76. His second run was just ever so slightly slower at 1:02.77.
These two runs allowed him to qualify in fourth place for Monday’s final in the Men’s Snowboard Cross SB-LL2.
