On Friday Skiing great Jasey-Jay Anderson won the bronze medal at the first alpine snowboarding stop on the 2010 LG Snowboard FIS World Cup in Landgraaf, Netherlands.  Anderson had the sixth fastest time and was the fast Canadian present during the qualification round.  “I was aiming for a top eight. This is an excellent day for me to finish third. We made lots of small modifications to our equipment system throughout the summer, and it is not done all the way through, specifically in slalom. I am not 100 per cent comfortable with the system. We are definitely on the right path, and that’s really positive for the time to come,” said Anderson after his time on the podium.

Anderson also took the bronze home in 2004, making him the only Canadian to win a medal at Landgraaf.  During the semifinals, Anderson raced Mathieu Bozzetto of France but could not close the lead Bozzetto gained after the first two runs.  Bozzetto would go on to win the silver medal. The second stop in the FIS World Cup tour will be in London on October 31st.
