Tudhope and Reid add world para snowboard medals
After becoming para snowboard cross world champions on Saturday, Ben Tudhope and Amanda Reid have capped their seasons by both claiming bronze in the dual banked slalom titles in La Molina.
For Tudhope, it underlines an impressive campaign where he never finished outside the podium at a world cup event or at the world championships in either snowboard cross or dual banked slalom.
Having achieved his primary goal of winning the snowboard cross world crown, Tudhope was able to relax in the dual banked slalom and still walk away with a medal in Spain.
"I was just enjoying it out there today after the gold in the boardercross the pressure was off," said 23-year-old Tudhope.
"It felt like really spring conditions out here and the course was pretty challenging so I'm just happy I made it down safe and fast enough to get another medal here."
The Sydneysider beat home France's Mathais Menendez Garcia in the small final to finish third in the LL2 category. Italy's Emanuel Perathoner claimed gold in the big final ahead of USA's Zach Miller.
Reid's bronze medal continues a whirlwind entry to winter sports for the para cycling ace, who won gold at the Tokyo Paralympic Games and is a multiple world champion on the velodrome.
"It was a really good ride," said Reid. "I'm really happy with it considering it's my first world championships."
Reid edged out American Rebecca Johnson in the small final to finish third in the LL1 category, while Brenna Huckaby Clegg (USA) claimed gold ahead of Cecile Hernandez (France) in the big final.
