Peetu Is TTR Champion

8 03 2010

Fresh off a silver medal at that little contest in Vancouver, Peetu Piiroinen is the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour Champion for the second year in a row.

Even though the Burton U.S. Open is still to come, Peetu’s win at The Arctic Challenge was enough to guarantee him the overall title. Peetu is an amazing all-around rider, and has earned himself A LOT of money by dominating this tour. Peetu earned $35,000 USD for the Arctic Challenge Win, and a cool $200,000 USD for the overall TTR title… not to mention all of the other individual contest payouts throughout the year.

I love living in a world where snowboarders can get filthy rich like all those other athletes!
