January 8, 2008 – The first big international halfpipe event of the year – at the Tignes Airwaves, in Tignes France – on January 7th and 8th, wrapped up with a very successful weekend for Team Dynastar/Lange. Mike Riddle took 1st in the Halfpipe and 3rd place in the “Big Hip”. Tanner Rainville finished 5th in the Halfpipe and 17th in the “Big Hip”, and Loic Collomb-Patton from France had a 4th place in the “Big Hip”.
This was the first big event of the season and gave Riddle and Rainville tremendous confidence and momentum for the upcoming X-Games. These gentlemen are competing at the highest level in the world and we look forward to seeing them continue to succeed! – Dynastar
