Two days, two gold medals; no big deal. Business as usual for Oakley snowboard star Shaun White as he secured his second Winter X Games Tignes gold medal in two days. A day after completely dominating the Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe event in France, Shaun completed the back-to-back gold medal performance, taking the top spot in the Slopestyle event for the first time since 2009.
Bienvenue en France! Shaun White Takes Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe Gold In Winter X Games Tignes Debut
Welcome to France! Oakley snowboard icon Shaun White dominated the Men’s Snowboard SuperPipe in his first visit to the Winter X Games Tignes. It didn’t take long to for Shaun to secure the gold medal, scoring a 98 in his first run; a super smooth run that included a switch cab double cork, a double McTwist 1260 and an alleyoop rodeo to close it out. His near perfect score set the tone for the day and none of the competitors came close to challenging Shaun’s position on the leaderboard.
Amidst thousands of spectators and the world’s best snowboarders, Team Oakley rose to the occasion once again at the 2012 Burton US Open in Stratton, VT – the final event of the 2011/2012 TTR Would Tour. Topping the list of highlights from a weekend full of standout performances were Oakley riders Sebastien Toutant, Stale Sandbech and Shaun White.
