This saturday the Norwegian Federation were hosting "Snowboard awards 2009" in Oslo.
The whole snowboard community were gathered for a great party.
I was nominated in the category: "female rider of the year" together with Kjersti Buuas, Linn Haug and Helene Olafsen.
All of us have had a great season and could easily be the one bringing the title back home.
Mia Hundvin and Lasse Andersen presented the price and I got the goose bumps when Lasse shouted my name out laud as the WINNER!
I was so stoked and happy to be announced as the female rider of the year. That means that people have noticed my great season and my results. I really feel supported. It really nice to be awarded with this price after the end of what I will call the best season of my carrier...so far. :) It got me really stoked and is for sure going to help me stay motivated to progress my riding throughout the next season.
Thanks to all of my sponsors that have been supportive and without them I wouldn't be able to snowboard at all! Roxy, DC, Bern, Dakine, Skullcandy.
Thanks to the Jury and people voting for me!
And last but not least, Jens-Martin Johnsrud my boyfriend who has supported me so much. He is a major part of my support structure, and without him I don't think my season would have gone as well.
...and now PARTY! Cheers.
Linn, me and Kjersti
