BURLINGTON, VT (February 24, 2011)
Burton congratulates team rider Peetu Piiroinen on today’s news from TTR that he has officially secured his third consecutive men’s title, a feat that no other snowboarder can claim. Peetu will get his $50,000 check from TTR and his third championship trophy at the Burton US Open on March 12, when the men’s and women’s Swatch TTR World Tour Champions will officially be crowned.
Because of Peetu’s impressive results this season, TTR officially announced that it was mathematically impossible for anyone to catch up to him, even with several weeks left on the tour. With the rare ability to dominate slopestyle, halfpipe and big air events, Peetu can now head to the US Open in two weeks with one of the sport’s biggest titles already in the bag.
Way to go Peetu!
