Winter X-Games 17 | Mens Snowboarding Highlights

With the 17th Winter X-Games in the history books, here’s what went down in a nutshell:

1.) Shaun White dominated superpipe winning his 6th straight X-Games Gold in the event.

2.) Fourteen-year-old Ayumu Hirano of Japan, scored a 92.33 securing a second place finish in superpipe finals. Amazing. It’s obvious that White could have his hands full at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics.

3.) Mark McMorris scores a 98.00 in the Men’s Slopestyle Finals. There was a lot of hype leading into the event about the White/McMorris rivalry. At the end of the day, White was no match for the young ripper from Vancouver who made high scoring history of his own.
