Shaun White Killed It Tonight

(Monday, February 15, 11:32 pm) First, it’s raining so hard right now. Second, before it unexpectedly started raining at about 9:00 pm tonight, the pipe had improved a lot and Shaun White was killing it. He pulled his winning run sticking both his frontside and Cab double corks up high and his double McTwist 12 on the last hit. Of course he wasn’t getting as much air as usual, but it was pretty amazing that he was able to put his run together. The other riders were getting hung up on the mogul field in the flatbottom. It was hard to tell what Shaun was doing differently to not be effected as badly. The pipe was definitely shaping up and expectations were that it could actually come together for a good finals. We’ll see how it fares after this latest rain shower. Hopefully it doesn’t dislodge itself and take off down the mountain like some sort of freak Mardi Gras float.
