Skiing Superpipe Gold medal, three times in a row... you can really
feel the pressure at the top of the pipe in this beautiful episode.
Watch it now.
A crazy evening for Kevin Rolland, he wins
X-Games Superpipe finals.
In a very intense finish in this Superpipe, Kevin won his third
Winter X-Games in a row.
With two falls in his two first runs, Kevin earned a 93,66 score in
the last one with a double 9 to alley-oop flat 3 to switch 7 to
switch 9 to double cork 12.
A strong mind for Kevin who showed once again his domination in
Torin Yater-Wallace took silver and Simon Dumont took bronze.
Unfortunately, David Wise and Xavier
Bertoni with too many falls finish at 7th and 8th place.
They will do better next time.

Live from WXG !
Rossignol qualifies it's top three pipe skiers- David Wise, Kevin
Rolland and Xavier Bertoni will participate in the X-Games
Superpipe finals in Aspen !
Superpipe finals will be amazing, the riders are super motivated
and they've been training hard to be ready for Friday night.
By qualifying 2nd David Wise has proven that after season ending
knee injury last year, with hard work and dedication, it's possible
to come back and be at the top of your game.
Kevin Rolland continues his pipe domination, fresh off a Dew Tour
win at Killington,VT, he crushed it with an inspiring 3 double flip
run that topped the leader board at 95 points.
Xavier took eighth place with a great technical run, but a small
mistake on the last hit dropped his score a few points.
See you tomorrow for the finals.

We're back at Aspen with Xavier, who took gold at the half pipe

placed first at the Dew Tour.
We're on to a great week of competition.
Monday was the first warm up for the X-Games at Snowmass' half
pipe. The guys had two more runs yesterday to heat up. Today is
Finals are friday and considering the direction that freestyle
skiing is taking
these days, they should be phenomenal.
More news tomorrow.
