The wait is finally over, so grab some red, white, and blue and get ready to cheer your favorite ‘Merican snowboarder’s on in the

half pipe in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics.

Last Saturday marked the final stop for the Grand Prix in Salt Lake giving us a clear look at the final riders. The results came in and double-corked, Shaun White as well as Scotty Lago, and Louie Vito will be competing on the male side. For the females, we look forward to seeing Kelly Clark, Gretchen Bleiler, and Hannah Teter send it in Vancouver.

The fourth spots for the men and the women were also determined yesterday (after the event) with riders Greg Bretz and Elena Hight added to the U.S. Olympic Snowboarding team.

The full team has finally been announced and we look forward to a bullfighting competition in the half pipe.
