Mitch Toelderer Winning Line at the Swatch Big Mountain Fieberbrunn 2011 by Nissan

Austrians dominated the fifth and last event of the Freeride World Tour prior to the big season finale in Verbier, Switzerland next weekend. The snowboard Men were no less exciting with the Austrian locals pushing hard for the win at the Swatch Big Mountain Fieberbrunn 2011 by Nissan. As the second snowboarder out of the gate, Mitch Toelderer (AUT) rode the course like a man possessed, with a run that started immediately out of the gate with a few smaller drops to landing a huge double jump clean and then taking a six-meter cliff drop with a slightly sketched landing. Coming in second place was another Austrian Max Zipser followed by the sole Englishman on the tour, James Stentiford, with his best finish of the season. "For an Austrian to win at Fieberbrunn for such an amazing audience, it was really special for me. Max [Zipser], Stefan [Hausl] and Hauni [Matthias Haunholder] and I all rode almost the same line and it was a really good decision, but in the beginning I was not sure. But I’m super happy that everything went as planned and that we decided to go on this spectacular line", said Toelderer.
