Men's snowboard cross postponed to Tuesday due to fog
Rescheduled for Tuesday at 1:30 am ET
The Olympic men's snowboard cross event was postponed due to heavy fog on Monday at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park.
The race will now be held Tuesday at 1:30 a.m. ET (streaming at cbc.ca/olympics). Seeding runs will be skipped, and competition will begin with the quarter-finals. Athletes will be seeded based on their FIS World Cup ranking.
Officials checked various points on the course Monday, deciding that the bottom area was clear but the top section was unsafe.
After waiting more than three hours for visibility to improve, the race was called off.
Canada's Chris Robanske said the athletes were prepared for potential issues to arise due to problematic weather before they even arrived at the Olympics.
"We know the weather can be terrible in Sochi so we all came here with expectations that it can be like this," he said. "Ultimately it's [the jury's] decision and were just going to prepare for tomorrow and bring our 'A' game."
