SNOWBOARD TÄNGL TEAM #7 – OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION – TRIPLE COCK
Profile “Triple Cock” – Janne Korpi (C) (FIN), Peetu Piiroinen (FIN) & Ville Uotila (FIN)
Hold on to your hats, lock up your women (especially with a team name like Triple Cock), and get prepared for a three man ‘bang-a-thon’… Bring on the Finnish big guns, boasting three time consecutive TTR World Snowboard Tour and two time Air&Style Champion, Peetu Piironen, former Wängl Tängl Champion, Ville Uotila, and the man with the plan, Team Captain, Janne Korpi. If you wanted an all round, complete snowboard team that ticks all the boxes and is proven for kicking goals, then you need to look no further than Team Triple Cock – roughly snowboarding’s version of Barcelona in the Champions League – al conquering, all powerful… and damn hard to beat!
The power of the Triple Cocks (so named for a ‘cocked gun trigger’) starts in the midfield with Captain Janne Korpi, who rips anything put in front of him with a smooth, stylish flow that often is missed as he puts everything on the ground while setting up everyone around him with consummate ease, skills that are so slick they are often missed and always underestimated, similar to Barcelona’s Inestia and Xavi dominating central midfield. A power forward, if there ever was one, Ville Uotila would frighten most people if he could actually get the smile off his face. It is said that weather systems change directions as Ville sets and starts to wind up to launch his next trick – which often leaves the local weather dazed and confused, as he loves to wind up spins in all four directions.
And then there is Peetu, the Lionel Messi of Team Triple Cock. How does he do it? We don’t know. But he has the pop, agility, slight of foot, and stomps the un-stompable more often than a Chuckbuddy on steroids. Taking the Lionel Messi analogy, Peetu Piironen is simply a freak of nature, there is no other way to explain him in the realm of snowboarding. Expect the unexpected – you may as well, as it just happened right in front of your eyes!
The triple pronged attack, defensive cohesion and midfield dominance of Team Triple Cock will definitely test all of the other teams making it to the Tängl Team main event, guaranteed to send a chilly Finish winter blast down the spine of every team that draws the short straw and is match against them in the Team Battle knockout format…

SKATEBOARD TÄNGL TEAM #4 – TEAM INADAPTADOS – OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION
Manuel and David have an explosive skating style. Watching them skate together will be a treat, for sure.
Manuel’s high flying moves will make a great combination with David’s speed and technique. These two outlaws are punk to the core and together everything can happen.
“Both of us are great friends and think alike in many ways. We share the same taste in music and both of us like aggressive skating.
We definitely make a good team of two, and we look forward to proving it this year at Wängl Tängl !!!”

SNOWBOARD TÄNGL TEAM #6 – OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION – TEAM X-DOUBLE
Profile X-Double – Wolle Beer(C), Steve Grumser and Max Glatzl
Straight outta Innsbrooklyn! The infamous X-Double store in Innsbruck is a big influence in Snowboarding as well as in Skateboarding but also beyond the borders of Tyrol and Austria. For the Vans Wängl Tängl 2012 we are sending the total package to make the crowd happy with a team consisting of the legend Wolle “Beerwolf” Beer (Goalkeeper), youngster Max “The Glatz” Glatzl (Forward) and Steve “The Loco” Grumser (Defensive). These guys are ready to have fun on snow and if necessary with ice-skates in their backpacks they are all set for THE GAME.
Wolle is a true Innsbruck-legend and famous for his board control, his love for trannies and of course his party skills.
Max is a real allrounder and drops bombs on kickers, rails, pipe and pow. Nuff said!
Steve’s biggest passion is riding rails and street but don’t be surprised if he is putting down some bangers on the kicker line.

SKATEBOARD TÄNGL TEAM #2 – TEAM HOBO – OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION
“Mayhrofen is an amazing place. I already been there 2 times for the Wängl Tängl, and it was always amazing times.
Being in the little village with snowboarder, artists, musicians , everything together make me really happy . Especially for us, skateboarders, because we don’t go often up to the mountain so it’s a perfect opportunity for us to breath the pure air of Tirol .
I’ve asked Dominik Dietrich to skate with me because he is the new pro on ANTIZ. He is an amazing skateboarder, is always smiling and happy, and of course he is austrian…
HOBO team will have fun!”
