Check The Course with Maxence Parrot – Backside 1440 Triple Cork at O’Neill Evolution 2013

As the lights were about to go out at the end of Wednesday’s training session here at the O’Neill Evolution, Maxence Parrot (CAN) decided there was no time like the present to try his first Triple Cork. His first attempt was close, landing on his feet but slipping out and taking a nasty bum check in the process. Anticipation in the press tent was high as he dropped in for his second attempt, and this time he stomped it in a Torstein-Horgmo-Winter X-Games-perfect-score type of way, making it the first contest kicker Triple Cork in European history. Never one to be outdone, Sebastien Toutant (CAN), the last rider to drop in during tonight’s training session, went within a whisker of stomping his own variation of the Triple. The consensus on the ground here tonight is that we may well end up seeing a triple knock out another triple in the new 6 Star Big Air head-to-head format – suffice to say the level of progression is going through the roof. As ever, the O’Neill Evolution brings together the best in progressive freestyle snowboarding, and this year’s edition is shaping up to be one of the best ever.

Progression was the key word in the Men’s Big Air contest. Maxence Parrot won with his 3rd run, nailing the Backside 1440 Triple Cork Mute – Boardslide – Backside Lipslide. This rarely seen trick was a big treat for the huge crowd in Davos.

Giving everybody a taste of his intentions in the training earlier this week, he commented on his performance: ’’I just landed the cleanest triple cork in my life and i am stoked. I learned this trick only three days ago, and I wasn’t even stressed about doing it, but when I landed it, I was shaking, and worried a little about the rail section. I am so happy it all went well and I just won the biggest contest in my life.’’ 15 year old Kyle Mack (USA) and Emil Ulsletten (NOR) joined Maxence on the podium, really challenging Maxence in the superfinal after his first run. Kyle attempted to beat Maxence with an extremely stylish Triple Rodeo Indy 1440 – Backside Lipslide – Frontside Noseblunt to Fakie, a trick never performed in a contest before.
