Kaitlyn Farrington took victory today in the women’s superpipe finals of the inaugural Winter X Games Europe in Tignes, France. The girls seemed to cope very well with the 22 foot superpipe, and perform excellent along the lines of what the judges wanted to see: amplitude, combination, difficulty, and use of the pipe. Of the six riders that had qualified for the finals Kaitlyn laid down the best run, including a Back 5, a Frontside Air, a huge Backside 9, a Front 5 and – if we saw it correctly – a Back 7. This performance was awarded with remarkable 97.00 points. Second place went to Olympic gold medallist Torah Bright, who showed a run oozing with amplitude and style. It included a Front 7 to Cab 7 off axis combination, but was not enough to beat Kaitlyn’s technical repertoire today. Bronze went to French Sophie Rodriguez, who kept impressing the crowd with her smooth Frontside 9s.
