Video – Piiroinen Wins 2010 TTR Snowboard World Title

March 11th, 2010

Finland’s Peetu Piiroinen beat out Norwegians Torstein Horgmo and Mikkel Bang at The Arctic Challenge this past weekend to clinch the Swatch TTR World Tour Title for the second time.The quiet spoken kid who is known for going huge and technical secured the title with one more 6-star event still left on the calendar (The Burton US Open), which is the quickest anyone has ever won the title before. It could be argued that a lot of other riders were focusing on the Olympics thus making the Tour easier to win, although Peetu shut the gate on these comments by winning silver at the Olympic halfpipe behind Shaun White.

Next year a Peetu v Shaun battle on the Swatch TTR World Tour would be very appropriate… Quiet Fin Charger versus load Amercian Hero – two sides of the snowboarding coin.

Enjoy the Video – thanks to the TTR for a great tour and sick videos.
