The Season of Triples – World Snowboard Tour Season Recap 2012/13

The 2012/13 World Snowboard Tour Season truly introduced a new level of competitive snowboarding. Triple Corks were the state of the art trick to take the top spots. At the first 6 Star Event of the Season, the Air & Style in Beijing in December, Yuki Kadono took top honors with his Backside Triple Cork 1440. At the following O’Neill Evolution in January, in Davos, Switzerland it was up to Maxence Parrot to take first place with a Backside Triple Cork 1440. At the same event Kyle Mack came second, as he attempted to beat Maxence with a Triple Rodeo Indy 1440 - a trick never performed in a contest before. The X Games in Aspen closely followed, where Mark McMorris gave a glance of his incredible level of riding and defended his Gold medal title in Slopestyle with the highest ever score in X Games Slopestyle history with 98 points, finishing with a Triple Cork 1440 on the last jump. At the Air & Style in the Bergisel Stadium, Innsbruck it was Eric Willett who won the Ring of Glory with a Switch Backside 1260 Mute. Though, in the rounds before, Mark McMorris and Stale Sandbech brought the Highlight Runs, with their Backside Triples, but unfortunately they couldn’t keep up that level leading into the Superfinals. In addition to the great show, Sebastien Toutant was crowned World Snowboard Tour Big Air Champion that day. At the Burton European Open in Laax it was Torstein Horgmo who won, still he couldn’t show his Triple, as the Finals had to be cancelled due to the worsening weather conditions. The Burton US Open in Vail, Colorado at the End of February crowned Mark McMorris first, which made him the World Snowboard Tour Slopestyle Champion. On the women’s competitions it was Sarka Pancochova who had shown a truly solid level of riding and was crowned with not one but two World Snowboard Tour Champion Titles: Overall as well as Slopestyle. Kelly Clark was crowned World Snowboard Tour Halfpipe Champion as in the year before. The men’s World Snowboard Tour Halfpipe Title was given to young gun and big talent Ayumu Hirano. At the last Event of the 2012/13 Season it was the battle between Stale Sandbech and Peetu Piiroinen for the last remaining Title: World Snowboard Tour Overall Champion which finally went to Peetu again for the fourth time. Already kicked off with the first 6 Star event, the X Games in Tignes (FRA), the 2013/14 Season promises to be another great one. Be sure to expect further progression and highlights in the upcoming winter.
