The US Open wrapped this afternoon with Kazuhiro Kokubo and Kelly Clark winning the halfpipe in a big victory for the letter K. It was Clark’s 4th halfpipe win and Kazu’s first, although his win was viewed by some as a slight against Louie Vito who took second despite throwing three double corks. You can see it in his face on the podium. The big winner on the day was Peetu Piiroinen who clinched the BGOS title, the TTR crown, and the best trick in the pipe for a cool $103,000. Ch-ching.

US Olympic Snowboard Team Announced

24 January 2010, 15.38 | Posted in Competitions, snowboarding | No comments »

The US Olympic Snowboard team was announced last night following the final stop of the Grand Prix series in Park City, Utah. For the women, it was a straight repeat of four years ago with Kelly Clark, Hannah Teter, and Gretchen Bleiler taking the top three positions. For the men, shoo-in Shaun White was joined by Louie Vito and Scotty Lago in receiving the plaid uniform for Vancouver. One additional team member for both men and women will be announced tomorrow but between Shaun and Kelly’s aerial dominance, it doesn’t really seem like anyone else has a chance at the gold.

Go here for the full recap and gallery.
