Austrian follows historic November trick with new feat in Obergurgl.
Anna Gasser‘s rollercoaster winter season continued with another women’s world-first trick as she landed a Cab Double Cork 1260 in Obergurgl to follow the Cab Triple Underflip 1260 that she produced back in November. Here is all you need to know:
– The 2018 Pyeongchang big air gold medallist stomped the Cab 1260 Triple Underflip at Austria’s Stubai Glacier, however she suffered a hairline crack in her ankle at the Laax Open in January which saw her miss the Winter X Games and Snowboarding World Championships.
– Gasser, 27, rebounded from the injury in gutsy fashion to get back on her snowboard around a month ago.
– During a shoot in Obergurgl, she then became the first woman snowboarder to land the Cab Double Cork 1260 of three-and-a-half turns, twice over her head.
– Not only that, Gasser did it on her first try ahead of a few more weeks of training at USA’s iconic Mammoth Mountain and a film project for the beginning of June.
– The Villach native revealed: “I am glad that I am back to full strength. I have had this trick in my head for a while and the desire to create it has been getting bigger during the injury break. Mentally I’ve played through the sequence of movements hundreds of times. The goal is to integrate this trick in big air and slopestyle competitions next season.”
