Anderson third at indoor snowboard GS in Netherlands

Although he wasn’t a fan of short, indoor courses, Mont Tremblant’s Jasey Jay Anderson proved he can be explosive out of the gate as well as a strong finisher with a bronze medal performance at Landgraaf, Netherlands last weekend.

The result puts him in second overall in the parallel giant slalom standings on the snowboard World Cup.

"I felt very good today and I did two great runs, I thought I could have won one of the two. I did a small mistake in the semi-final, which doesn’t even show on the video, but it did slow me down," said Anderson, the four-time overall World Cup snowboard champion. "It’s the type of small thing that makes a huge difference at the end of my day."

Urs Eiselin of Switzerland took the win, edging past Nicolas Huet of France in the finals.

Philippe Berube was the only other Canadian to crack the top-30, finishing 28 th overall.

In the women’s event, Daniela Meuli of Switzerland was first, followed by Ilona Ruotsalainen of Finland and Julie Pomagalski of France. None of the Canadian women qualified for the finals.
