So with the X Games going nuts at the moment and the superpipe qulaifications were just the start of the craziness! Defending champ Kevin Rolland showed that he’ll be the man to beat this year after finishing the qualification in top spot. He stomped a double 900 to alleyoop flatspin 3, to switch 9, to switch 7, to double cork. With a score of 95.00 the others would have to work pretty hard to keep up with him.

Torin Yater Wallace has to take the spoils though as he’s the local boy and still at a tender age of 15! He stomped back to back 9’s, a corked 12, alleyoop flatspin 5 and an alleyoop double flatspin 9.Here’s the classification: Pipe Men: 1. Kevin Rolland 2. David Wise 3. Torin Yatter Wallace 4.
