Official GvR Press Release!

Feb 25 2008 / Monday

Here's the low-down. The team-based format of etnies GvR Snow pitted Transworld Snowboarding’s Regular Footed riders against FUEL TV’s Goofy Footed riders, with each team appointing a team captain. The final score left the Regular footers victorious with 2747 points over Goofy’s 2345. Juuso Lavisto sent it and earned both first place and MVP, while Bear Mountain sold-out of lift tickets with more than 7,000 people in attendance.

FUEL TV’s Director, John Stouffer, came out to lead the Goofy Team to take the win, with Nick Dirks, Louie Vito, Ryan Thompson, Simon Chamberlain and Chris Bradshaw as the starting five going into the finals.

Kurt Hoy, captain of the Regular Team, appointed Austin Smith, Joe Sexton, JP Walker, Markku Koski and Robbie Walker as his starting five going into the finals.


Juuso killin' it

Juuso Lavisto came out, qualified for the finals and pulled some stylish backside 7’s, frontside 7’s and a 50-50 to 360-out on the rail to win it for the team.
