Career

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.
