World Superpipe Championship

The World Super Pipe Championships,

a 5-Star Event on the Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour, took place on Saturday at Park City
Mountain Resort in Park City, Utah USA. The 22-foot Superpipe remained in pristine
condition despite slightly overcast conditions. The level of riding was incredibly high
in a straight-to-final format with riders allowed three attempts to throw down their
best run. Australian rider Torah Bright took the women’s top spot, extending her
Tour lead as Shaun White (USA) once again dominated the pipe in hopes of
defending his TTR Tour Championship Title.

The women dropped first, and right off the bat Torah Bright and Kelly Clark (USA)
were the standouts of the day with consistent sky-high airs and dialed spins. It was
a battle to behold. Clark came extremely close to claiming the Superpipe title on a
run that challenged the riding of some of the men. A hard hit to the deck on a
monster McTwist cost her the top spot as she settled for second place. Clark remains
in TTR World No. 3, behind current World No. 2. Jamie Anderson (USA).


All eyes however, were on Torah Bright who was on point, showcasing her signature
smooth style and taking the first place spot and adding another 850 TTR ranking
points to her current score. Bright had some big straight airs and even threw a backto-
back 7 combo. With a first place finish at the World Superpipe Championships
Torah extends her lead as World No. 1 in the TTR World Rankings. Ellery
Hollingsworth (USA) also made a big move in the TTR Rankings with a fourth place
finish in Park City that moved her into the TTR Top 10.


On the men’s side, Shaun White, Mason Aguirre (USA) and Janne Korpi (FIN) put
together great runs, earning their spots on the podium. Korpi claimed third place and
moved into Swatch TTR World No. 8. Mason Aguirre was boosting some big airs and
technical tricks to take second place moving him up a couple of notches to World No.
12. Andy Finch, World No. 4, and Peetu Piiroinen, World No. 3, took eighth and
ninth places respectively in Park City and maintain their current positions in the TTR

With US rider Kevin Pearce absent from the World Superpipe Championships, it was
Shaun Whites time to shine as he put another Halfpipe win under his belt, inching
closer to the TTR Top 10. White’s third result for the 07/08 TTR season pushes him
into Swatch TTR World No. 44. White will need three more results to maximize his
point earning potential if he hopes to defend his Tour Lead and with just three more
opportunities to do so, White will have to be spot on from here on out.

The Swatch TTR World Snowboard Tour is coming down to the wire with only a
handful of 5 and 6-Star events remaining for top TTR riders like Kevin Pearce and
Torah Bright to secure their lead and claim a large piece of the $250 000 end-ofCONTACT:
season prize purse.

Coming up soon is the 5-Star Chevy Grand Prix taking place next
weekend in Killington, Vermont, leading into the Champion crowning events the 6-
Star Burton US Open, and the 6-Star Roxy Chicken Jam. Stay tuned to for updates as the Tour comes to a dramatic close over the
next couple of weeks.
