Ladies and Gentlemen,
Dear sport Fans,
It is a pleasure and a privilege for me, once again, to be associated with the organisation of the Fis Snowboard World Cup 2017 and thus - to welcome the best snowboarders of the world in Bansko, Bulgaria.
The privilege of being given the rights by the FIS to organise consecutively World Cup races in Bansko, sanctions the Bulgarian Ski Federation’s seriousness in hosting world class sporting events.
To be given the privelege of hosting prestigious competitions since 2009 here in Bulgaria, confirms the trust placed in us by the winter sports community for our tremendous effort to promote the sport not only here at home but all over the world.
As the competiton gets under way and the snowboarders will astonish us with their prowess, there will be an opportunity to network, and exchange ideas among an international snowboarding community of experts.
I’m confident that the superb conditions on our racing courses and the presence of our champions Radoslav Jankov and Alexandra Jekova will by acknowledged by our fans. I also hope that the warm Bulgarian hospitality and the unique spirit of Bansko will touch our worldwide audience.
Good luck to all.
