it's pretty dope they take the big kicker at the end. Most of those landings don't end well. snowboarder/skier/mono-skier x are my favorite parts of the coverage. I'm not so sure about Shawn White's winning super-pipe score. He had the best tricks but the score was ridiculously high. It's why I don't like competitions that hinge on judges scores. He's the poster boy for the sport so unless he didn't have a good run, his 4-peat was a sure thing. During the snowmobile best trick, a dude pulled a trick nobody had ever done before in compilation and the judges didn't give him a score he deserved. His brother still had one more run but isn't a sicko and knew he couldn't pull out a metal worthy trick. So, he buzzed around and riled up the crowd then his brother rode over to him and jumped on the back of his sled. Down the run up they went and ended up landing a back flip with two riders on a sled set up for one person. so awesome, WINTER XGAMES!!!!!!!
I saw Shawn White's thing. Maybe he didn't deserve that score, but I still thought he was better than everyone else and deserved to win.I still have trouble considering snowmobile an extreme sport. Like how many people are there in the world who get a chance to practice x-treme jumps off a snowmobile... 15-20? I could be off with that number but who knows. It is fun to watch, it just seems silly to me though.
