Nå er vi stolte som bare det. Teamkjører på SrfSnoSk8 og FTWO, Ulrik Badertscher, nappet til seg en billett til London i siste liten. Der borte viste han nasjon, sponsorer og alle andre hva han er god for. Med en Backside Rodeo 900 danset han seg vei til finalen. Gratulerer med en topp start på sesongen!
Vi setter over til pressemeldingen fra FTWO:
Big Air Season’s Opener in London
Two Ftwo Teamriders under the Top 5!!!!!
Congratulations Stefan and Ulrik.
Peetu Piiroinen claimed first place in yesterdays immense LG FIS Snowboard World Cup. The young lad from Finland was on fire through out the qualifiers and maintained his impressive form into the finals and onto the top of the podium. Stefan Gimpl, previous gold medalist took 2nd place and his 10th podium for the World Cup though was full of praise for Peetu, “Peetu was unbeatable today. He was the best in the final as he was the best in the qualifiers. Therefore, he deserved to win.” Roger Kleivdal from Finland was also in impressive form, coming away with 3rd. Scotty Lago from the US of A won the crowd and judges, winning the Trick Of The Day with an incredible Double Back flip late Backside 180 to send the crowd into chaos that nearly rivalled the scenes of Cypress Hill in the main arena later that night.
