Anna Gasser and Sven Thorgren put it down when it counts yesterday to take the women’s and men’s X Games Norway crowns in Hafjell. Check the men’s and women’s podium runs.
Although the slopestyle course was constantly referred to as ‘challenging’ by the commentators – both the setup and the constantly fluctuating speed had been causing riders no end of problems since they started training – and the consequent level was perhaps a notch or two below that of the X Games in Aspen, Anna Gasser and Sven Thorgren showed they can rise to the challenge and duly swiped their coveted X Games Slopestyle gold medals.
Check what the podium runs were all about here…
1st – Anna Gasser

3rd – Julia Marino
1st – Sven Thorgren
