Robert Burns (Mount Shasta, Calif.) battled snowy conditions and raced his way into finals Tuesday at the 2019 FIS Alpine Snowboard World Championships at Park City Mountain, Utah. In the first round of the parallel slalom finals, he faced a very worthy competitor in the 2019 parallel giant slalom World Champion, Dmitry Loginov of Russia. In what was a very close race from the start, Loginov bested Burns by only .62 seconds.

“It’s so much fun,” said Burns. “Honestly, it’s just an honor to be out here with some of my best buds on snowboards. I’ve been out training in Steamboat Springs, Colo, and it’s been a crazy year. I’ve been working a lot and training as much as possible, so getting to come out here and represent the U.S. is a huge honor. Head to head I have never had to race Loginov before, but I know he is such a talented kid. He won yesterday and he’s already the champion of the world in PGS, so anytime you’re up against someone like that, you have to bring your best. It’s been truly amazing to compete in Park City on home soil at the World Champs in front of a great crowd. It just makes my heart happy. Also, it’s rare to have my family here, so it’s a very special moment.”

Loginov went on to earn his second FIS World Championship gold medal of the week in parallel slalom, carving his way through the bracket to take the victory. Burns finished 15th overall on the day. Although he did not reach the podium, he represented his country and snowboarding in fine fashion at the 2019 FIS Snowboard, Freestyle and Freeski World Championships, presented by Toyota.
