CORRECTION Austria Snowboard World Cup_STP2191_MURAKAMI-DAISUKE[1]

A huge congratulations to Daisuke Murakami from the K2 Japan Team for taking his first place in a World Cup. He no doubt deserved this win and will take him a lot closer to the Olympics in one of the tightest competitions Japan has ever had. Daisuke’s Run consisted of a backside air, back-to-back 1080′s, and a backside 900. Killing it.

After his win Daisuke said: I’m very happy. It’s so nice that all the people showed up here and watch me riding the pipe. – Such a humble guy. Way to go Daisuke!
