A Other video by Mpora - 4,249 views



The hunt for the 08/09 Swatch TTR World Snowboard Champion is on. The final round rocks up in Vermont, as snowboarding phenomenon Shaun White looks to add yet another title to his considerable collection.

Finland's Peetu Piiroinen is the current world number one, following his victory in the Billabong Air & Style in Austria. White will have to perform strongly in both the halfpipe event on Saturday and the Slopestyle contest on Sunday, if he is to take the TTR World title for a second time.

The top riders are fighting for a coveted top five finish, which guarantees big cash rewards, and invites to the top events next season. US riders Chas Guldemond and Kevin Pearce are finishing strong, and with Pearce on home turf, anything could happen.

The women's contest is more open, with snowboarding phenomenon Jamie Anderson sitting in number one spot, as Germany's Silvia Mittermueller, Lisa Wiik of Norway and Sarka Pancochova are all looking for an upset.

Check out this preview video to find out who’s on it and who’s up for it, as we look forward to the 6Star Burton US Open in Vermont.
