White wins again in Tignes! Nicholls finishes 8th!
Fri 16 March 12
Jamie Nicholls placed an impressive 8th place in the Men Snowboard slopestyle scoring an impressive 74.66.
Nicholls continues to impressive again the world’s top riders.
Shaun white was definitely not today’s favourite on the Slopestyle course in Tignes. Chas Guldemond, defending champion, was determined not to let this go. However it only took one run, his first one, for Shaun White to set the record straight. His first run put him in first place and nothing would change this today. Shaun White was here to show that he was back in business for Slopestyle. And his first run that scored 95 points with a switch back 1080 double cork et several back 1260 double corks, sent the message loud and clear. As if that wasn’t enough, the ‘Flying Tomato’ added insult to injury, increasing his score to 97 points on his second run. This effectively left very little room for Mark Mc Morris (second) and Eric Willet (Third) to bump Shaun out of first place. The young Nowegian rider, Stale Sandbech, that finished fourth made a strong impression on the crowd that had turned out massively to watch the event under Tignes’ scorching sun.
He won the Men's Snowboard Slopestyle on Friday with a top score of 97 from his second run which included three double corks in a row, switch double cork 1080 and two double cork 1260s, for a top score of 97. Shaun white also won the Halpipe Event the previous night..
