Default I.Pod or Shaun White in the pipe?

Ok I didn't want to jack someones thread so I'm asking here.

In March of 2010 Iouri Podladtchikov (yes I copied the spelling) pulled a 98.00 in the pipe with the Double Mctwist. Personally I like this guys style better than Shauns, and the Double Mctwist was landed much cleaner here as well. Would've loved to see these 2 compete to see the results.

Who would've won?

Its a close call. That run would not have beaten White's 97.33, but White did not deserve that score. Comparing these 2 runs, I think Shaun's is better mainly because he gets an extra hit.

Yea a lot of people overlook shauns extra hit. That's what happened a couple years ago against Kevin Pearce. I firmly believe Kevin would have won if he took the last hit. He had room for it and even the commentators were saying he should have hit it.

iPod is sick, but I think his score was inflated too. He is the second rider to do that move and the first is Shaun. That looks very good to judges.

Love or hate the guy, Shaun White really is on top skill wise in the pipe. However, he isn't head and shoulders above everyone like he has been. The skill gap is closing and I'm very excited to see what's to come.
