Scotty James (AUS) and Yuto Totsuka (JPN) threw two of the best Snowboard Superpipe routines ever seen at the X-Games.
In the second round the two established the “benchmark” against which the rest would be measured, with James slightly better. Totsuka was not satisfied and improved improved it, surpassing James.
Scotty answered a Switchback, Back 12, Front Cork, a Switchback 1260 and others but still placed second.
Then in the next round he improved with a Switch Back 12, a Back 12 and a 1440. It was not enough for the gold anyway. It was won by the Japanese snowboarder.
