Jan 262018

ASPEN, Colo. – January 25, 2018 – X Games Aspen 2018 officially kicked off in Aspen, Colorado on Thursday January 25th with Men’s and Women’s Ski Superpipe Finals. Monster Energy would like to congratulate their athletes who competed in the heavy hitting finals and made it on the podium. David Wise claimed gold for the men, and Brita Sigourney and Cassie Sharpe took silver and bronze.

Wise came out swinging and stomped his way to first place with his first run and held onto the lead throughout all three rounds of the men’s final. On his third and final attempt, Wise made history with a run that included four double corks spun four different ways. Wise has been working on this trick combo all season, and was beyond stoked to pull it out tonight.

“Four is my lucky number I guess,” said Wise, who was beaming after the event. “I was feeling the energy of the crowd, and am really excited to be here and throw this down. Landing this run has been my goal, and it’s just such an honor to earn this win,” he continued.

 

Wise’s skiing was by far the most progressive and technical of the night earning him a 94.00. His winning run included; switch right double cork 1080, left double cork 1260, right 1080, switch left double cork 1080, and a right double cork 1260.
