Ormerod & Morgan claim Silver & Bronze in Moenchengladbach Snowboard World Cup Big Air

Tonight was a special night for GB Park and Pipe in Moechengladbach, Germany as they walked away from the third Big Air World Cup of the season with a double podium finish, as Katie Ormerod claimed silver in the women's finals and Billy Morgan took bronze. 

 

After her bronze at the Snowboard Big Air World Cup and Olympic test event in Alpensia, Korea last weekend, Katie Ormerod stepped up to finish second behind Austrian Anna Gasser. Miyabi Onitsuka (JPN) took third. 

 

Ormerod said after her podium finish: "I'm extremely happy to get second at another World Cup Big Air! The standard was really high and I'm stoked to put down my two best runs and also try two different 900s. It's so awesome that two Brits were on the podium at this event with Billy grabbing 3rd place in the men's event as well!"

 

Billy Morgan was on fire in Germany as he fought hard for his third place finish behind Roope Tonteri (FIN) in first place and Jonas Boesiger (SUI). 

 

Morgan said after claiming bronze: "I had an epic day riding, it was a lot of fun and getting a podium is the icing on the cake! It's also epic to be up there with Katie, she rode so well."
