Congrats to Ursina Haller for taking 2nd at LG’s FIS Snowboard World Cup!

Here’s an excerpt form FIS Snowboard from Ursina herself.

Ursina Haller was also satisfied with her first ever podium; especially as she was able to showcase her true riding skills in a World Cup contest for the first time: “So far I wasn’t very successful in the FIS World Cup. I’m happy that I made it today. It was some nice riding today and if good things come out of it, it’s even better,” the 24-years-old stated after having landed “frontside air”, “backside 540″, “frontside 540″, “backside air” and “frontside 720″.

Next week, from March 18th through 21st, 2010, the first ever World Cup finals to be held in Spain will be staged. The final decisions in snowboard cross, halfpipe and parallel giant slalom will be held in La Molina.

The Swiss gal states: “I didn?t expect to win, I was hoping for top five or top three – so I am even more stoked with the win!”

Walking home with 1000 Swatch TTR ranking points and $8000USD. That’s a nice hunk of cash!
