Peetu Piiroinen Is Three Time TTR World Snowboard Champion

http://www.ttrworldtour.com – Last season, Peetu Piiroinen was the first ever snowboarder to win two TTR World Tour titles and has returned again this season to take an unprecedented third consecutive TTR title, a feat no other snowboarder has come close to touching. At the age of 23, Peetu has had an amazing run in competitive snowboarding with over 25 career podiums. Peetu started competing back in 1997 at the ripe age of 9-years old and has been steadily progressing his riding since. He made his first big break onto the scene back in 2006 when he took his first major win at the Burton European Open, where he won the slopestyle title. From there, he has expanded his skills into the halfpipe, quarterpipe and big air jumps winning competitions around the world. The key to Peetu’s success on the TTR World Tour has been his ability to master all disciplines in freestyle snowboarding.This season, Peetu competed on three different continents and did not discriminate when choosing what types of events to attend. Peetu does it all and does it all well. He began this season in Asia at the 6Star Shaun White Oakley Air & Style in Beijing, China where he placed fifth in the big air competition. From Asia, he moved on to Europe where he took fourth place at the 6Star O’Neill Evolution halfpipe in Davos, Switzerland. Peetu found himself back on the podium when he took down the 6Star Burton European Open halfpipe title and placed second in slopestyle. And, at the 6Star Billabong Air & Style in Innsbruck, Austria, Peetu took another second place. Just one week later, he won the Nike 6.0 Air & Style in Munich, which was the result that ended up clinching his TTR World Tour title for the 2010/11 season.1st – Nike 6.0 Air & Style Munich Germany, Big Air 1st – Burton European Open, Halfpipe2nd – Billabong Air & Style Austria, Big Air 2nd – Burton European Open, Slopestyle4th – O’Neill Evolution, Halfpipe5th – Shaun White Air & Style Beijing, Big Air11th – Burton US Open, Slopestyle21st – O’Neill Evolution, Slopestyle

6Star Oakley Shaun White Air & Style Beijing – Wrap Up

Beijing, the capital city of China and home to over 20 million people played host to 24 of the planet's best freestyle snowboarders at this year's Oakley Shaun White Air&Style. This is the first top ranked six star event of the season. Just three years after making it on to the scene, Beijing is already an iconic stop on the World Snowboard Tour. This year's Air&Style was the „crusher“ of favorites. Current World Tour Big Air Champion, Seppe Smits stomped his Backside Double Cork 1080 Nosegrab in round one but couldn't pass round 2. Seb Toots, winner in 2010, made it through round 1 with an almost perfect Backside Double Cork 1080 Mute, but faced highly motivated Roope Tonteri in the second round. With a 7th place finish, Roope secured his lead in the Big Air and Overall Ranking of the World Snowboard Tour. Another favorite bites the dust. Marc McMorris, smoothed his way through Round 1 and 2, but when facing Matthias Weissenbacher in Round 3, he struggled on the landing of his Backside Triple Cork 1440 Mute. The door was wide open for 16 year old japanese rider Yuki Kadono, but only the performance of a lifetime would see him on the podium. With variation and style he marched through the early rounds and with his jaw dropping Backside Double Cork 1260 Mute in round 3 he managed to enter the superfinal. With one last run to go Yuki threw a huge Backside Triple Cork 1440 mute, winning the contest and making him the youngest Air&Style winner ever – a record previously held by snowboarding wunderkind Shaun White.

Iouri Podladtchikov, Peetu Piiroinen and Kazuhiro Kokubo talk to the Stwatch TTR World Snowboarding Tour about the 6Star Burton European Open Finals in Laax, Switzerland. Iouri Podladtchikov (SUI), took third place at BEO with big spins in the pipe to move into the TTR World No. 1 spot. But, it was Finnish halfpipe machine, Peetu Piiroinen, who took down the win for the second year in a row, which improved his position in the World Rankings to World No. 3. Peetu blew the crowd away with his last run made up of a frontside 720, Cab double cork 1080, frontside air, backside 900 and a backside alley-oop rodeo. Peetu was very happy with his win saying, "This win means a lot to me, I would not have thought that I would be able to defend my victory from last year. It was a really great weekend, second place in slopestyle and first in pipe and I have some other good results on tour which means I could fight for the TTR title again." Style master, Kazuhiro Kokubo (JPN), took second place with an excellent display of how riders can excel with a run focusing on style in the halfpipe.
