Burton European Open & mainstream media

Didn't follow the Burton European Open too closely since I was in Puerto Rico for a wedding but the guys over at Snowbroader have some good concise coverage of it, was going to wait until they got their own higlight video up but until then, I've embedded the two highlight videos below. I recommend skipping the first minute of the slopestyle highlights video and the second half (the interview), the halfpipe highlights is pretty good throughout.

It's weird how closely Kevin Pearce resembles Shaun White (or vice versa). Both recently received a lot of coverage in the mainstream media. White was the cover story in one of my favorite magazines, Fast Company and Pearce was a major story in this week's ESPN The Magazine.
