The votes for the first round of the first Real Snow Backcountry Fan Favorite race are in. The closest matchup was between Jussi Oksanen and Winter X Tignes hometown hero, the Frenchie Mathieu Crepel, who were neck-and-neck in vote totals for most of the last week. In the end Oksanen took it by a mere 338 votes, and has advanced to the next round, along with Gigi Rüf, Nicolas Müller and John Jackson.
The second round ends at midnight PST, March 5, so get over to the Real Snow Backcountry home page and vote. Tell your friends to vote. Tell your friends' friends to vote. Let's blow this party out. Yeow!
