Copper Mountain, Colo. - Under clear skies and chilly temperatures, Luke Mitrani (Mammoth Lakes, CA) and Olympic champion Kelly Clark (West Dover, VT) led the USA finishing second at the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix at Copper Mountain. Australia’s Nathan Johnstone and Torah Bright took the wins. Louie Vito (Sandy, UT) was third. It was the first domestic stop for athletes to gain Olympic qualifying points and 5Star World Snowboard event points. The event will be broadcast on NBC and NBC Sports Network, with initial airing Sunday at 4:00 p.m. EST on NBC.
“My first run went really well and I was happy with how my double came together," Luke Mitrani said. “My second run, I blew it so I was glad that I had the security from my first run. You know, I really like the halfpipe here at Copper and I am stoked to see how the Olympic qualifying period will continue to go, it feels good to be here and I am looking forward to the next Grand Prix at Park City.”
