Ulen made a special surprise to the only Bulgarian winner of the Grand Crystal Globe.
The concessionaire branded one of its 160 gondola cabins with the name and face of Radoslav Yankov, who became 28 years old on January 26th, 2018 during the FIS Snowboard World Cup in Bansko. Yankov was honored in the Pirin mountain, similar to ski legends such as Marc Girardelli, Alberto Tomba and Hermann Maier. Ulen's gesture is also a sign of gratitude to Rado, who on February 3rd, 2017, recorded a historic victory at the debut of Bansko in the most commercial competition in the second most popular winter sport.
This year he failed to repeat his perfect performance of 2017. Nevertheless the audience welcomed him as a winner.
After the starts under Todorka peak in Bansko, FIS congratulated Bansko for the perfect organization of the Snowboard World Cup.
