Points List

TTR Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mens Halfpipe – Mitrani, Vito, Bretz

Luke Mitrani (Stratton Mountain, VT) put down a huge first run to win. “This is crazy because I didn’t even snowboard this summer. I just skateboarded a lot and took my mind off snowboarding, so to jump back into it is crazy to win a contest. I’m shocked. My strategy was to just focus on my riding and feed off of other people. When someone does something big it makes me want to ride even harder for myself.”Pro Halfpipe Team member Greg Bretz (Anaheim) placed third behind defending champion Louie Vito (Columbus, OH) in a contest full of upping the ante, as riders put down frontside 12s and a even few back-to-back double cork 10s while afternoon shadows moved over the Copper halfpipe.The Copper Grand Prix had some major influence on the TTR Rankings. New leader of the TTR Halfpipe World Tour Ranking is Louie Vito, after coming in second here at Copper Mountain. Christian Haller, taking 5th place here, moved from the 10th to the 5th position making it into the top 5. Entering the top 10 from the 33rd position is Nathan Johnstone with his 8th place this weekend.

The third annual TTR 5Star Burton Canadian Open 2011 presented by MINI is geared up and ready to rock the Winsport Canada's Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta all this week. The snowboard competition officially kicks off with qualifiers on Tuesday, February 1st with halfpipe finals taking place Friday, February 4th and slopestyle finals going down on Saturday, February 5th. Riders will be going after a slice of the $50,000 USD prize purse and a maximum of 850 TTR ranking points. The competition season is moving quickly and the Canadian Open is a major stop for riders going after a top spot in the Swatch TTR World Tour rankings before the 6Star Burton US Open where the TTR Tour Champions will be crowned in March.With the 6Star Billabong Air & Style event happening the same weekend, many of the current TTR Top 10 male competitors are in Austria, but the Canadian Open rider list is still chock full of talent. Chas Guldemond (USA) will be in attendance and will be one to look out for on the slopestyle course. Chas has been making some major moves in the Swatch TTR rankings over the past month with a podium at the 6Star Burton European Open and will be looking to climb higher in the TTR Top 20. And, current TTR World No. 2, Christian Haller (SUI), has the opportunity to take the tour lead if he can nail down good results in both slopestyle and halfpipe. Christian has been having a stellar season so far with a first place in the halfpipe at the 5Star Burton New Zealand Open and he also took his first 6Star title of his career in the halfpipe at the O'Neill Evolution.
