He was coming in so much faster than anyone else did on that, i feel bad for him, if they let him go again, i feels like he could have had such a sick run, probably clinched second over the kid. he was definitely a threat to Shaun White. The dude is one of the best snowboarders in the world and he's so well rounded its unbelievable.
reminds me of when i used to race way back when, and my best friend's binding malfunctioned right when he started the race. he basically did a kick start right out of his ski and fell through the wand on his face. he still put his ski back on and finished though hahaha
