Winter X Games, Aspen 2016

Winter X Games, Aspen 2016

Winter X Games, Aspen 2016.
Dalbello skiers have finished their experience taking home a record, 4 medals, and many great results.
First of all Kevin Rolland knocked Kenworthy off the top spot on the last run with an equally smooth down-the-pipe switch dub 10, left and rightside double cork 12s, and a massive double cork 10.
It was redemption for Kevin, who’d placed second the past two years, and hadn’t won X Games pipe since his winning streak in 2010 and 2011.

The hype has been around for a while, and 13-year-old Kelly Sildaru lived up to it today, holding off a field of older competitors to claim the gold medal in her first-ever X Games slopestyle appearance while setting the record for the youngest-ever female X Games champion to boot.
Sildaru’s winning run consisted of an absolutely dialed K-fed on the top rail, a clean switch 270 on, pretzel 270 out, and a polished performance in the jumps: switch 900 mute, a beautiful right cork 720 reverse mute, and a left 900 tail to round things out.
Former champion Tiril Sjåstad Christiansen didn’t let Kelly take the win easily, though. In her third and final run, the Norwegian competitor upped the ante on the rails with a front swap and a switch 2 on, 2 out, and cleaned up in the jumps as well, stomping a massive switch 1080 tail on the bottom jump. But it wasn’t quite enough to bump Sildaru from the top spot.

The last gold medal comes from Maddie Bowman that, back from knee injury, wasn’t even trying to grab her skis and claimed first place. Yes she threw back to back 900s. Yes there was the first switch 900 by a female freeskier but it didn’t have event the beginnings of a grab and barely reached the coping.
