X Games Halfpipe Freeskiing Winners Repeat at Park City

By February 2, 2013

Follow me on:

If you watched the freeskiing X Games halfpipe competition last week, it was deja vu in Park City Mountain Resort's superpipe at the Visa U.S. Freeskiing Grand Prix as champions David Wise of Reno, NV and South Lake Tahoe's Maddie Bowman continued their winning ways.

In fact, it was the third straight win for Bowman and her fourth of the season on the 2013 AFP World Tour moving her to the top spot on the AFP womens Halfpipe World Ranking. Wise and Bowman were also crowned U.S. champions for their results in the two U.S. Grand Prix halfpipes.

The FIS Freestyle World Cup and AFP Platinum level event attracted a world class field as U.S. teenager Torin Yater-Wallace finished second followed by two Frenchmen - Kevin Polland in third and Thomas Kreif fourth. In the women's event, Ayana Onozuka of Japan was second and Swiss Virginia Faivre finished third.

Next up is Sochi, Russia for a FIS World Cup test event in the Olympic halfpipe on February 16.
