Default XGames 16 Thread

I tried to do a search, don't think there's a thread to discuss the superbowl of our sport so I decided to make one...

Ryan Paul with the silver in street... backflip off the down flat.. pretty sick!

Pretty stoked to see Forest Bailey win the snowboard street event. I'm not big into the whole street scene to say the least, but I've always enjoyed Bailey's video parts.

I watched the heat rounds of street and it wasn't too great lol. Wasn't around to watch the final unfortunately although based on that trick apparently the final was much better!

Sucks that Guldemond didn't make it. His 1st run looked pretty rough. Not surprised in the least by SW missing slopestyle.

Shaun White hurt his ankle in practice and didn't compete.

"I'm disappointed. My priority this year was to ride in Slopestyle, and unfortunately I hit my ankle again riding the course in today's practice," White told ESPN on Friday. "I'm going to rest up and get ready to ride Pipe on Sunday."

Thats my thought too. If slopestyle was really his priority, he would tape up his ankle and get back out there.
