Stratton, Vermont—Marking a historical day for both individuals and Nations, USA’s Shaun White won his first ever US Open Men’s Halfpipe title with Australia’s Torah Bright winning the Women’s title, giving Australia their first ever win at a US Open. Big movers on the tour rankings came from Antti Autti(FIN) who finished 10th today and moved rapidly to 3rd on the World Rankings only 64.88 points behind team partner and current Tour leader Risto Mattila(FIN). As tomorrow will be the last option to gather higher points than already logged by the riders the Championships race has come down to a three man battle. All in exceptional form and all holding exceptional records in tomorrows format, the eyes will be on France, Finland and again, Finland. If Mattila’s results are lower than 2nd Autti would need to win to take the crown, Crepel will require a result 5th or better. The heat is on!
