Fox was the story during the World Cup season, winning both the C-1 and K-1 races in the first three World Cups – the first anyone had won both in a single event since 2013, when Fox also did it – then finished second last week in Tacen (SLO) in the K-1 to Austria’s Kuhnle. Tasiadis (GER) won three World Cups this season, also winning in Tacen last week.
