Many competitions have faced cancellation in this tumultuous year, but X Games returned to our screens today despite the travel restrictions and difficulties presented by the pandemic. It's taken a lot of effort on the part of the organizers and athletes to get us here (as well as copious testing) so let's take a moment to be grateful that we get to enjoy the show at all!
Following up the ladies' big air event this afternoon, the women dropped into the ever icy superpipe, this time with clear skies and minimal wind. We saw the full array of riders tonight: seasoned vets like Devin Logan & Brita Sigourney, young guns like Zoe Atkin & rookie Eileen Gu, and the Canadian powerhouse Cassie Sharpe. Last year's gold medalist, Kelly Sildaru, sat out due to knee issues and is hoping to be able to ski by tomorrow's slopestyle competition so the field was wide open as to who would end up on top of the podium.
3rd Place - Rachel Karker
2nd Place - Cassie Sharpe
1st Place - Eileen Gu
