Albert Popov, with corresponding ending of his strongest season in World Cup

As expected, Albert Popov made a memorable World Cup slalom final. On the Avet track in Soldeau (Andorra), our best alpine was ninth after the first match in the race held at spring temperatures.

In the final descent, Albert rode strong again and finished 12th, his best-ever time at this track in Soldeau.

The winner was Ramon Chenheisern (Switzerland), and the second, Lucas Broten (Nor), won the small cup in slalom for the first time. In the overall standings for the SK in discipline, Albert finished in a record 15th place with a career-high 182 points earned in just one season.

In February this year, Albert first climbed the podium in SLalom for SK, finishing third in Palisades / Tahoe (USA). Of a total of 10 World Cup starts, he finished twice in the top 10 and 6 in the top 15, and once was 21st.

To support Popov in the finals today were BFSki President Tseko Minev, his deputy Georgi Bobev, as well as Bulgarian ambassador for Spain and Andorra Alexey Andreev, who brought a huge Bulgarian flag, and also many fans.

Two simultaneous successes for Bulgaria as another Bulgarian snowboard star Radoslav Yankov completed the World Cup season appropriately. In the finals in Berchtesgaden (Germany), he took seventh place in the parallel slalom. In the decisive battle for a place in the top 4, Yankov was ahead of Arvid Auner.

In the final, the Austrian was defeated by his compatriot Fabian Obman, for whom it was the first victory for SK. However, success provided him with a small globe in the parallel slalom and the major World Cup.

For Yankov, yesterday’s result was third in effect after the one in Bansko (fourth) and Blue Mountain (sixth). He was also seventh at the World Cup in Georgia. In the final World Cup standings, Yankov is 16th—12th in the parallel slalom rankings and 20th in the similar giant.

“It turns out many times I got a few hundred out all season, but that’s it. I hope these hundred will be on my side next year, ” said Rado from Berchtesgaden.
