TTR – Iouri Podladtchikov, Peetu Piiroinen & Kazuhiro Kokubo On The BEO Pipe Finals
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.
