Predictably, it was another case of triple-takes-all at Winter X Games 2015 big air, with backside triple corks dominating the podium.

Mark McMorris put down a frontside triple cork 1440 and backside triple cork 1620 to post a combined score of 88 points, enough to put himself ahead of fellow Canadian Max Parrot and Japanese ripper Yuki Kadono.
