British snowboarder takes podium
British snowboarder James Stentiford has secured third place at the fifth and penultimate stage of the 2011 Freeride World Tour at Austria's Fieberbrunn resort. It was the 39-year-old's first podium finish of the season after just missing out in Sochi with fourth spot and in St Moritz where he came in fifth. He is placed seventh in the overall standings after his success at the Swatch Big Mountain Fieberbrunn 2011. The snowboarders and skiers are heading off to Verbier in Switzerland for the season finale next weekend.. Stentiford said he had a "fluid" run along the Wildseeloder face of the famed Austrian resort. He added: "I wanted to try to make it to Verbier so I thought I better stay on my feet. For a guy from the UK to come third, and me being nearly 40, I think that's a good achievement so I'm going to celebrate".
