Was there really any question?

Sure, maybe some of you created a doubt or two after Shaun White failed to qualify in Slopestyle. But Men’s Superpipe is the house that White built.

White threw down the same double McTwist 1260 he did in the Olympics, as well as two double corks and a backside alley oop.  He made it all possible with his amped start where he grabbed 19-plus feet of air.

The crazy run earned him a score of 97.33, which tied his own WX record. It’s also White’s fourth Superpipe win in a row.

Scotty Lago was second with a score of 92.00.  Most impressive was that he threw down one of his best runs ever with his jaw wired shut.

The injury happened almost three weeks ago while shooting video in the backcountry. Doctors told him that WX was a definite no-no.  So much for medical advice.

Louie Vito’s third run score of 87.33 was good enough for bronze.
