About

 

BIO:

Best known for sending it with style, Mike Riddle has been competing in the professional halfpipe skiing circuit for the past seven years producing podium results at top events worldwide. A regular at X Games, European X Games, The Winter Dew Tour, World Cups and other major events he has consistently proven to be top competitor. Mike’s titles include The 2008 European Open, 2010 Winter Dew Tour Champion, 2011 FIS World Champion, 2012 AFP Championships Winner and 2013 World Cup Halfpipe Overall Champion.

Growing up in the small town of Sherwood Park, Alberta he began his competitive career 12 years ago as part of the Alberta Big Air Team. This team evolved over the years into the privately-funded and managed “Canadian Halfpipe Ski Team” and included some of the best competitive skiers in Canada. After years of pushing for his sport to be included in the Olympics, the announcement of Halfpipe Skiing as an official discipline in May 2011 was a long awaited milestone and life changing moment. Now a member of the Canadian National Team, he has a complex training schedule, multiple coaches, and state-of-the-art resources all designed to maximize his ability to bring home a medal.

Sponsored by The North Face, Atomic, Giro and Rockstar Energy, Mike has high hopes and expectations for the upcoming years. After earning an early nomination to the Canadian Olympic Team his sights are now set on the 2014 Sochi Games, and backed by industry leading sponsors, his future is limitless.
