LG Snowboard FIS World Cup: Winners in Moscow, Russia
The male and female winners of the 2010 LG Snowboard FIS World Cup in Moscow, Russia are snowboarders Aaron March of Italy and Doris Guenther of Austria.
Aaron March from South Tyrol celebrated his first ever world cup win at the 2010 LG Snowboard FIS World Cup in Moscow. Thousands of spectators came to witness the first ever parallel event held on a ramp.
After his first ever World Cup win in his 37th start, Aaron March was ecstatic, especially since he admits that he had some trouble at the start.
“It was pretty hard for me in the beginning. But I got into it better and better with every run I did,” said March.
However, despite Aaron March's talent, a riding mistake of his rival aided substantially in his victory. The snowboarder even admits that he was completely surprised by his win.
“It was so much fun to compete in front of so many spectators. I would gladly do more of races like this one,” said Guenther.
Doris Guenther clearly benefitted from her many years of experience in the World Cup. Unfortunately, her second run had to be done again due to a timing problem on the first try. In the end, the 31-year-old Guenther proved that she was in top shape for the competition.
“Right from the beginning I felt super strong. It is very important for me to claim a victory right after the Olympics,” added Doris Guenther.
Due to her triumph in Moscow, Russia, Guenther is also back in the race for the Parallel Crystal Globe. With 3,710 points she now sits in second place right behind Olympic champion Nicolien Sauerbreij (NED, 3,800).
The next opportunity to see Aaron March and Doris Guenther will be at the LG Snowboard FIS World Cup stop in Italy from March 11th through 14th.
