Pick went into the event after winning Briton’s first-ever Dew Tour gold Medal in February and his two first-place finishes in Spain ensured Pick’s first career gold medals in a World Cup event.
Pick was a double bronze medallist at the same event last year in the LL2 category but went two better this time round beating Codina Thomatis took two bronze medals and double silver medallist Ben Tudhope of Australia.
Speaking after the event Pick said: “I’m really stoked on today’s racing in not the best conditions and to get my first gold is awesome, but now I am focussed on the World Cup Finals in Norway later this month.”
James Barnes-Miller was also on the podium with his first-ever banked slalom silver medal In the men’s SB-UL class. Both golds went to Italy’s Jacopo Luchini who fended off Barnes-Miller in the first final, and France’s Maxime Montaggioni in the second.
