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

On the women's side Kelly Clark moved into World No. 11, putting some pressure on the women in the Top 10.Kelly Clark Brings a Top Performance Despite Morning FogThe day kicked off with a small delay due to some clouds hanging over the pipe forcing the organizers to change the format. All women went from semi-finals straight into a two-run final of 21 riders. Kelly Clark (USA), once again, set the bar for the rest of the field and put down her best run on her first drop throwing down a frontside 900, backside 540, frontside 720 and finished with a Cab 720. With her first place finish here, combined with her victory last weekend at the 6Star O'Neill Evolution, Kelly has made her presence known in the Swatch TTR World Ranking and will be a competitor to watch out for throughout the rest of the season. Kelly had this to say about the day, "I love this pipe and I come here every year. It's one of my favorite events to come to because the pipe is so much fun to ride," and she continued to talk about her win saying, "It's great winning another 6Star event, I'm looking forward to the Burton Canadian Open and the Burton US Open and to see if I can't get a few more good results."Behind Kelly was young Spanish rider, Queralt Castellet, who has been shaking things up in the women's halfpipe scene and broke into the TTR Top 50 with her second place finish today, as did the Japanese rider, Yuki Furihata, who placed third.History Repeats Itself in the Men's ...
