Grenade Team Riders Dominate Podium in Park City and Three Riders Say Hello to Vancouver
In an explosive finish at the final stop of the US Snowboarding Grand Prix this past weekend, three Grenade team riders showed Park City and the world who's ready for the Olympics. A little over two weeks away, the 2010 Winter Olympics will witness the feats of Grenade team riders and Olympic first timers Louie Vito, Scotty Lago, and Greg Bretz on the men's 2010 Olympic Snowboarding Team.
Of the four pipe athletes competing on the men's halfpipe team, three will be representing the US of A and rockin Grenade Gloves. Bretz' 4th place finish on Saturday held him in contention with Luke Mitrani (3rd) and JJ Thomas (5th). The coaches' final decision, however, came down to who would best rep the US in the Olympics, and Grenade's Bretz took the cake.
