Skellefteå (Sweden), 8 March 2014 – With over night rain, gusting wind, and occasional bouts of sunshine, it was a race against the elements today in Skellefteå, Sweden as the riders geared up for the one and only round of the FIM Snowcross World Championship. Although the circuit proved to be very testing indeed, it wasn’t enough to slow down the Swedish snowcross hero Adam Renheim from taking his second consecutive FIM Snowcross World Championship title. Meanwhile in the FIM Women’s World Cup class, Elina Öhman ran away with the race to claim her first ever World Cup, nineteen seconds clear of the next best rider.
