Kevin Drury is the ski cross Crystal Globe winner of 2019/20

Excerpt taken from fis-ski.com article 

Ever since his win in Megève (FRA) at the beginning of February, Kevin Drury (CAN) has earned a margin of World Cup points big enough to not be threatened by anyone of his competitiors. Drury has had the most successful season of his career, having landed on the podium either as winner or in second position in seven out of ten competitions this year.

Drury seemed to be unstoppable and always on fire, showing incredible passes, great technical skills and some really fast skiing.

Nobody of his competitors was able to reach the level Drury showed from the beginning of December. Therefore, the Crystal Globe is for sure very well deserved!

The battle for second and third overall ski cross rank on the men’s side, however, was still open. With the cancellation of the finals, the second rank goes to Ryan Regez (SUI) with a total of 454 points (314 points behind Drury), and third rank goes to Olympic Champion Brady Leman (CAN) with 428 points.

Thomas Mayrpeter from Austria and Canada’s Courtney Hoffos have won the Rookie of the year awards of the season and the Nation Cup went to an unbeatable Canadaian team this year.

It is really unfortunate that we cannot witness the final show of the year and that the season had to come to an abrupt end without proper finals, but the health and welfare of the athletes and all other participants, as well as the general public are in the forefront and the priority of all stakeholders of FIS competitions and therefore we wish everyone safe travels home.

Congratulations to everybody on an amazing season, congratulations to the World Cup winners and FIS Freestyle wishes everyone a great summer, see you again next season!
