Ttr tricks peetu piiroinen snowboarding at arctic challenge
Living in Hyvinkää, Finland, with his home mountain being Sveitsin Hiihtokeskus, Peetu has been travelling the world competing since 1997.
He consistently competes in the TTR World Tour and is currently one of the best snowboarders in the world. He finished 2nd in the Winter Olympics halfpipe event in 2010. He has so far now won three TTR World Tours in a row. He is the first one to do this.
He is the older brother of fellow snowboarder Petja Piiroinen.
He won the 2008/2009 Swatch TTR World Snowboard Championship and received much favourable press in his native country of Finland. In 2009/10, Peetu Piiroinen has carved his name into the history book of snowboarding by becoming the first snowboarder ever to win two consecutive Swatch TTR World Champion titles. As if re-claiming the most prestigious award in snowboarding was not enough, he also secured it a week before the last 6Star event, the Burton US Open. Piiroinen took an unassailable lead in the TTR World Ranking List with a win in the slopestyle at the 6Star Oakley Arctic Challenge in Oslo, Norway, on March 8, 2010. Along with the title, the 22-year-old Finn has earned himself another TTR prize money worth $50,000 USD and automatic invites to all major TTR events for the 2010/2011 season. In the 2010 season, Peetu has managed to balance his TTR commitments as well as shine at events outside the TTR tour winning an Olympic silver medal and the title at the Toyota Big Air in Japan.
In the 2007/2008 Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour, Piiroinen finished ranked World No.3. He finished 2nd in the Winter Olympics halfpipe event in 2010. Piiroinen has a sponsorship deal with Nike 6.0. His other sponsors include Burton, Red, Anon, Battery and 015 Boards and Lifestyle.
