An all star cast will gather this weekend for Finland’s highest ranking Swatch TTR World Tour event, the three star Snowboarding Finnish Open presented by Battery energy drink.
The event will see 2010 and duel TTR World tour champion Peetu Piiroinen battle it out in his homeland and in front of a home crowd in Tahko Resort in eastern Finland. The champion Finn will have his work cut out for him though with Finland’s amazing talent pool coming out in full force to challenge the champ.
“I am really happy to be competing at home and it will be a super fun event. The SFO presented by Battery always has a really good course and is a super fun way to end the season with more fun and shredding involved than actual competition. It’s always super relaxed and some fun parties but the level of riding will for sure be pushed because of the riders there.”
Already confirmed for this years event is newly crowned duel WSF World Rookie Champion, Roope Tonteri, who is fast following in Peetu’s footsteps and last years event winner Matti Kinnunen, who will be all hunting for the title.
Finland in the past 18 months has dominated professional snowboarding and this event will put the focus squarely on the talent pool and showcase what Finland has to offer.
The Snowboarding Finnish Open presented by Battery energy drink with the support of Nike 6.0, Tahko resort, Uhko Tahko, and Aerial 7 Headphones is Finlands highest rated Swatch TTR World Tour Event. Hosted in Tahko resort in eastern Finland, the event brings the best riders together to compete on in a rider built, rider friendly event with fun in mind.
