Monster Energy’s Snow Sports Athletes Take Three Wins in Key Competitions on the Final Day of the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain

Monster Energy’s Cassie Sharpe Scores Third Mammoth Mountain Grand Prix Victory in Women’s Ski Halfpipe at Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain

“I wanted to come here and have fun, but I’m so competitive that I can’t just come out here and have fun! I’m happy to be on top and also happy that everybody’s okay. The whole thing went down on the most beautiful day we’ve ever had in Mammoth for a final!” Cassie Sharpe

MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, Calif. (PRWEB) February 02, 2020
Talk about an epic performance! Monster Energy congratulates its team of freeski and snowboard athletes on dominating the podiums at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, California, on Saturday.

On the final day of the iconic snow sports competition, two-time Olympic gold medalist Jamie Anderson again proved her dominance by winning the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle final. The victory run continued in the Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle final, where Monster Energy’s newly minted team rider Dusty Henricksen shook up the field by taking first place. On his 16th birthday, the local prodigy from Mammoth Lakes, California, posted a perfect run to claim his first World Cup podium.
Rounding out a winning performance at this year’s Grand Prix, Canadian team rider Cassie Sharpe took first place in Women’s Ski Halfpipe, her third victory in the event at Mammoth Mountain.
Once again, the U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain showcased the state of the art in freestyle ski and snowboarding. Over the course of four days, the world’s best winter sports athletes competed for FIS World Cup points and a total of $400,000 in prize money in the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. The nationally televised contest features nearly 130 elite freeskiers and over 100 snowboarders.
At the end of an action-packed weekend, Monster Energy athletes claimed a whopping five wins, as well as one second-place finish and one third-place finish in a dominant performance at this legacy snow sports event.
Here’s how the action unfolded on Saturday in Slopestyle and Halfpipe events across freeski and snowboard disciplines:
Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle: Monster Energy’s Jamie Anderson Claims First Place
In the Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle final, Monster Energy’s Jamie Anderson came looking for the top spot after taking home gold in the discipline at X Games Aspen 2020 the previous weekend. The 29-year-old from Lake Tahoe, California, went head-to-head against seven of the world’s best riders hailing from Belgium, Canada, Norway, as well as the Netherlands, United Kingdom and United States.
Amidst blue skies and perfect slope conditions, the most decorated woman in snow sports put on a perfect show of style and versatility in her first run.
Jamie Anderson worked the rail section with a stylish backside lipslide, followed by a boardslide the entire kink rail before launching a boardslide to 270 off on the tall rainbow rail. In the jump section, she pulled alley-oop backside 540 Indy grab, cab 540 mute, and frontside 720 mute grab for the highest score of the day at 83.40 points and the win.
“I’m really stoked! It was super fun and I’m happy to be back in Mammoth. The U.S. Grand Prix did a really great job and we scored with the weather. No wind, sunny and the park was riding good!” said Jamie Anderson upon taking first place in Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle in Mammoth today.
Following her victory at Mammoth Mountain, Jamie Anderson now sits in third place on the International Ski Federation (FIS) 2019/20 Snowboard World Cup season leaderboards. The two-time Olympic Gold medalist is also podium-perfect in 15 appearances at X Games and owns a total of 17 medals (6 Gold, 7 Silver, 4 Bronze). As of last weekend, Anderson has surpassed Shaun White and Mark McMorris for the record of holding the most Snowboard Slopestyle gold in X Games history at six medals.
Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle: Monster Energy’s 16-Year-Old Dusty Henricksen Takes the Win
The Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle final saw a new generation of riders take over the top of the leaderboard. When all was said and done, three riders at 18 years of age and younger claimed the podium spots. Leading the pack was Monster Energy’s Dusty Henricksen from Mammoth Lakes, California, who took home the win and his first World Cup podium on his 16th birthday.
As the latest addition to the Monster Energy snowboarding team, Henricksen knows the slopestyle course at Unbound Parks like few other riders. The local ripper hit every obstacle with style and control, as he stomped a perfect routine on his second and final run of the day: Henricksen started in the rail section with a front 270 to 270 off, followed by a hardway Cab 270 back lip on the kink rail, and a boardslide to 270 tailgrab popped high off the tall rainbow rail.
In the jump section, Dusty Henricksen hucked a front double cork 900 double grab off the first jump before sending a Cab double 1260 nosegrab and backside triple 1440 mute off final jump for 84.51 points. Cheered on by his hometown crowd, the birthday boy took home first place and the first World Cup podium of his young career.
As a member of the U.S. Snowboard Rookie Team, Dusty Henricksen is having a banner year so far. He came to Mammoth fresh off of a gold medal at the Youth Olympic Games Lausanne 2020 and now commands first place on the FIS 2019/20 Snowboard World Cup season rankings. Keep an eye on this kid in 2020!
Women’s Freeski Halfpipe: Monster Energy’s Cassie Sharpe Claims Third Victory in Mammoth
When the contest moved into the Women’s Freeski Halfpipe final, the woman to beat was last year’s winner and Monster Energy athlete Cassie Sharpe. The 27-year-old from Comox, Canada, had suffered a concussion at the season opener in Cardrona in September 2019, which sidelined her from the first two World Cup events of the season. She returned to competition at X Games Aspen 2020 one week ago but struggled with the event’s new scoring format and had to settle for bronze in the Ski SuperPipe final.
All that was forgotten when Cassie Sharpe stepped into the eight-rider final under clear skies on the 22-foot tall halfpipe at Unbound Parks. Facing heat from Russia’s Valeriya Demidova, Sharpe put down a perfect run that brought her back into the winner’s circle: With signature flow and high altitude, Sharpe landed a rightside 900 into a huge left 900 tailgrab, followed by a right 720 safety grab to fakie, switch 360 mute, a perfectly executed flair and a high-flying rightside 1080 tailgrab on the last wall for a 90.00-point score and first place.
“I wanted to come here and have fun, but I’m so competitive that I can’t just come out here and have fun! I’m happy to be on top and also happy that everybody’s okay. The whole thing went down on the most beautiful day we’ve ever had in Mammoth for a final!” said Cassie Sharpe upon winning the Women’s Freeski Halfpipe final in Mammoth today.
Saturday’s win is Cassie Sharpe’s third victory in Mammoth and earned some much-needed points in the FIS 2019/20 Snowboard World Cup rankings. The 27-year-old sister of freestyle snowboarder Darcy Sharpe has won back-to-back Crystal Globe titles in Ski Halfpipe in 2018 and 2019 with a near-perfect record. Since December 2017, Cassie Sharpe has now reached the podium at eleven of thirteen halfpipe events and owns four X Games medals (2 gold, 2 bronze).
This wraps up an epic weekend at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. Monster Energy took home five wins in key events, including Sarah Hoefflin (Women’s Ski Slopestyle), Yuto Totsuka (Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe), Jamie Anderson (Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle), Dusty Henricksen (Men’s Snowboard Slopestyle) and Cassie Sharpe (Women’s Freeski Halfpipe). Additional podium finishes included Colby Stevenson clinching second place in the Men’s Ski Slopestyle final and Maggie Voisin taking third place in Women’s Ski Slopestyle.

Monster Energy’s Totsuka Takes First Place in Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe and Hoefflin Takes First in Women’s Ski Slopestyle at the Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain

Monster Energy’s Yuto Totsuka Takes First Place in Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain

It’s really incredible! I was so nervous actually at the beginning. I didn’t have it together until my actual run counted. So actually getting it down was incredible. Sarah Hoefflin

MAMMOTH MOUNTAIN, Calif. (PRWEB) February 02, 2020
Monster Energy congratulates its team of freeski and snowboard athletes on a dominating performance in the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain, California, this Friday. Monster Energy’s 18-year-old Yuto Totsuka from Yokohama, Japan, soared above the rest of the field in the Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe final and claimed first place well ahead of the next competitor. On the challenging course at Unbound Parks, 29-year-old Sarah Hoefflin from Geneva, Switzerland emerged in first place in a competitive field of athletes in Women’s Ski Slopestyle. She was joined on the podium by her teammate, 21-year-old Maggie Voisin from Whitefish, Montana, in third place. In Men’s Ski Slopestyle final, Monster Energy’s Colby Stevenson clinched second place with yet another podium performance. The 22-year-old rookie from Park City, Utah, just crushed his X Games debut the previous weekend by taking home two gold medals at XG Aspen 2020 and continued his roll at Mammoth Mountain today.
Once again, the full progression of freeski and snowboarding is on display in the U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain this weekend. Only one week after X Games Aspen 2020, the world’s best winter sports athletes are competing for FIS World Cup points and a total of $400,000 in prize money in the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain. Over the course of four days, the nationally televised contest features nearly 130 elite freeskiers and over 100 snowboarders.

Here’s how the action unfolded on Friday in Slopestyle and Halfpipe events across freeski and snowboard disciplines:
Women’s Ski Slopestyle: Monster Energy’s Sarah Hoefflin Takes First Place, Maggie Voisin Finishes in Third Place
In the Women’s Ski Slopestyle final, Monster Energy’s Sarah Hoefflin dropped into the course as a strong contender after taking home two medals at X Games Aspen 2020 (Slopestyle silver and Big Air bronze). Despite battling pain from plantar fasciitis in both heels, Hoefflin was focused on taking the top spot after closely missing the podium with a fourth-place finish at Mammoth Mountain last year.
As it turned out, Sarah Hoefflin’s moment had finally arrived. Working the obstacle course with technical slides and reverts in the rail section and perfectly executed aerials in the jump section, Hoefflin rose to the top of the leaderboard in the eight-rider final. Rail tricks like switch left lipslide 270, left 450 to switch out and switch lipslide on pretzel 270 off combined with aerial moves such as rightside alley-oop 540 mute, switch left Rodeo 720 mute, and switch right Rodeo 720 mute earned Hoefflin a dominant 87.18-point score and the win.
“It’s really incredible! I was so nervous actually at the beginning. I didn’t have it together until my actual run counted. So actually getting it down was incredible,” said Sarah Hoefflin upon taking first place in Women’s Ski Slopestyle at Mammoth Mountain today.
After today’s win, Sarah Hoefflin is ranked in first place on the International Ski Federation (FIS) 2019/20 Freeski World Cup season leaderboards in Slopestyle. The native of Switzerland came into professional skiing relatively late after earning a neuroscience degree from Great Britain’s Cardiff University in 2013. Hoefflin shook up the freeski elite by winning Women’s Ski Big Air at Aspen 2018 and that same year claimed the gold medal in slopestyle at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. After two podium finishes at XG Aspen 2020, she now owns four X Games medals (1 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze).
Also a strong contender in Women’s Ski Slopestyle, Monster Energy’s Maggie Voisin returned to Mammoth Mountain after undergoing knee surgery in Spring 2019. The U.S. Freeski Pro Team member came into the competition fresh off a bronze medal finish at XG Aspen 2020. As the winner of the 2017 Mammoth Grand Prix, Voisin remains a force to be reckoned with despite her young age, which she once again proved today.
Hitting the obstacle course at Mammoth Mountain with speed and finesse, Maggie Voisin rose to the podium in a heated final session. She followed up rail moves like switch left 270 to switch out, straight slide and backside switch-up on the tall rainbow rail with rightside 540 mute, switch left 900 safety and left rodeo 900 Japan in the jump section for a third-place finish and 81.38-points for her best run. Fully recovered from her left knee surgery in 2019, the Montana native is officially back where she left off: In 2018, Maggie Voisin turned heads as the first American rider in X Games history to win Women’s Ski Slopestyle gold and now holds five X Games medals (1 gold, 1 silver, 3 bronze).
Men’s Ski Slopestyle: Monster Energy’s Colby Stevenson Claims Second Place
When the action moved into Men’s Ski Slopestyle, the field of eight finalist had a new top competitor to deal with: Only a few days prior, Monster Energy’s Colby Stevenson had proven his ability to win big-ticket events at X Games Aspen 2020, where he made history as the first X Games rookie to win gold in the discipline and also took top honors in the new Ski Knuckle Huck event.
Approaching the course on Mammoth Mountain with confidence and technical bag of tricks, the team USA Member landed technical rail moves including left nose butter 450 to pretzel 270, switch left 270 backside switch-up 270 and 50-50 to right 450 off. Paired with high-flying airs such as switch left double Rodeo 1080 Japan, switch right double cork 1260 safety, and a left double cork 1440 tailgrab, the performance earned Stevenson 88.86 points and second place, closely behind Switzerland’s Andri Ragettli in first place.
On the strength of today’s second-place finish, Stevenson is currently ranked in fourth place on the International Ski Federation (FIS) 2019/20 Freeski World Cup leaderboards, closing in fast on a spot on the overall top three podium. The year 2020 shaping up to become a breakout season for Stevenson: The rookie won the “Best in Snow” award at X Games Aspen 2020 for his stellar performance last weekend and claimed third place at the Ski Slopestyle World Cup in Seiser Alm, Italy, two weeks ago.
Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe: Monster Energy’s Yuto Totsuka Takes Gold for Second Consecutive Year at Mammoth Mountain
The Monster Energy team concluded a dominant first day at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix at Mammoth Mountain in the Men’s Snowboard Halfpipe event. In the ten-rider final on the 22-foot tall SuperPipe at Unbound Parks, all eyes were on last year’s winner. Eighteen-year-old Yuto Totsuka from Yokohama, Japan, came to Mammoth as the halfpipe crystal globe winner in each of the past two seasons and fresh off a silver medal in snowboard halfpipe at X Games Aspen 2020. Would he clinch the top spot again?
Riding on perfect conditions at the Mammoth Mountain park, Totsuka took the lead straight out the gate with a perfect first run. His signature blend of high amplitude and fully extended aerials set the bar high for the rest of the field at 93,60 points. On his third and final run, Totsuka left nothing to chance and upped the ante with one of the best runs of the season: frontside double cork 1440 mute, Cab 1080, switch backside 1080, Cab 1260 tailgrab and frontside double cork 1260 with airs flying well above the 15-foot mark. The flawless run sealed the victory for Yuto Totsuka with 97.20 points, eight points ahead of next competitor, Team USA’s Taylor Gold, in second place.
After tonight’s victory, Yuto Totsuka now ranks first on the FIS Snowboard Halfpipe World Cup leaderboards, ahead of his closest rival, Australia’s Scotty James. Despite his young age, the 18-year-old is a now certified podium threat: Totsuka took home snowboard halfpipe wins at the FIS Snowboard World Cups in Calgary and Mammoth Mountain in Spring 2019 and third place at the 2019 Burton U.S. Open Snowboarding Championships. Last weekend’s silver at X Games Aspen 2020 marks the second silver for the reigning Japanese national halfpipe champion, who made his successful X Games debut in Aspen last year.
Also don’t miss tomorrow’s snowboard competitions at the Land Rover U.S. Grand Prix Mammoth Mountain. Monster Energy’s Jamie Anderson will be looking for the top spot after taking home Women’s Snowboard Slopestyle gold at X Games Aspen 2020 last weekend and David Wise from Reno, Nevada, is a podium favorite in Men’s Ski Halfpipe. Make sure to tune in tomorrow!

Monster Energy’s Snow Sports Athletes Claim Six Medals on the Final Day of X Games Aspen 2020

Colby Stevenson Wins Best in Snow and also Takes Home Gold in the Inaugural Ski Knuckle Huck and a Gold in Men’s Ski Slopestyle.

“I am literally at the last ounce of energy. That was the longest wait of my life watching Adelberg rotate that frontflip around. It’s awesome to be able to come back here year after year and chase after these medals,” said Brett Turcotte

ASPEN, Colo. (PRWEB) January 28, 2020
What a run! T he first Winter X Games of the decade is officially in the books and Monster Energy congratulates its team of snow sports athletes on claiming six medals (1 gold, 2 silver, and 3 bronze) on the fourth and final day of X Games Aspen 2020 at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado.The 19th consecutive X Games in the heart of the Rocky Mountains stoked fans with premium action sports and musical performances in a festival atmosphere from Thursday to Sunday. Presented by Monster Energy as the long-time energy drink partner, X Games Aspen 2020 awarded 59 medals in 21 disciplines. Over the course of four action-packed days, the spectacle attracted 111,500 on-site spectators.
When all was said and done, Monster Energy snow sports athletes claimed a total of 22 medals across ski, snow bike, and snowboard disciplines. The team’s dominant medal haul included ten gold, five silver, and seven bronze medals that were earned in some of the most spectacular final sessions in X Games history.
Televised live to global audiences, X Games Aspen 2020 featured 166 athletes from 21 countries as well as music performances by acclaimed urban and electronic artists alongside festival experiences at X Fest. On Sunday, the crowd was treated to a live set from American singer Bazzi on the GEICO Music Stage.
Here’s how the Monster Energy team’s medal run unfolded on the last day of X Games Aspen 2020:
Women’s Ski Slopestyle: Monster Energy’s Sarah Hoefflin Takes Silver, Maggie Voisin Bronze
Download Photos of Sarah Hoefflin and Maggie Voisin
Kicking off the last day of competitions at X Games Aspen, all eyes were on the Jeep Women’s Ski Slopestyle final. Under blue skies on Buttermilk Mountain, eight of the world’s top freestyle skiers took on the downhill obstacle course. Obstacles this year ranged from three different rail sections to a series of three jumps over 50- to 65-foot gaps and a vertical transition obstacle at the foot of the hill.
Similar to other freestyle disciplines at this X Games, Women’s Ski Slopestyle was contested in a new, 35-minute jam session format. Instead of winning on their highest-scoring run, competitors needed to display trick variety and different lines across the course to rank highest on overall impression.
Monster Energy’s Sarah Hoefflin came into the final as the oldest competitor at 29 years old, while the other seven contestants were all born in the mid-1990s. Then again, her age didn’t stop the Swiss freeski phenom from earning bronze in Friday night’s Big Air competition. And neither did the pain from plantar fasciitis in both heels and the aftermath of a leg injury suffered at the December 2019 World Cup in Atlanta slow her down.
When the Slopestyle final hit, Hoefflin once again rose to the challenge. Working the course with difficult, technical rail tricks and contorted aerials, her highlights included leftside 450 on 270 out and switch rightside 270 on the rails as well as 540 mute, bio 720, left cork 900 tailgrab, alley-oop 360 mute, and switch right bio 900 in the jump section for the silver medal.
After taking home two medals this weekend in her fifth X Games appearance, Sarah Hoefflin now owns four X Games medals (1 gold, 2 silver, 1 bronze). The Swiss native came into professional skiing relatively late in her career after earning her neuroscience degree in 2013. But she has since built an impressive competitive record: Hoefflin shook up the freeski elite by winning Women’s Ski Big Air at Aspen 2018 and that same year claimed the gold medal in slopestyle at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
Hoefflin was joined on the podium by her Monster Energy teammate, 21-year-old Maggie Voisin from Whitefish, Montana. After missing the podium in Big Air on Friday night, Voisin returned hungry to Slopestyle, which she won in 2018 as the first American rider in X Games history.
In the final session, Voisin worked the rails with technical moves like 450 on 270 out and left 270 to pretzel. She also hit the jumps with switch left 900 mute, leftside 720 tailgrab, rightside 900, and a huge 540 rodeo off the shark fin obstacle for the bronze medal. With Estonia’s Kelly Sildaru in the top spot, the final leaderboard was an exact replica of the Women’s Ski Slopestyle podium at X Games Aspen 2019. Maggie Voisin now holds five X Games medals (1 gold, 1 silver, 3 bronze).
Snowboard Rail Jam: Monster Energy’s Darcy Sharpe Claims Silver, Sven Thorgren Bronze

The action continued on the Slopestyle course with a special new event: Dedicated to progression, the first-ever Jeep Snowboard Slope Rail Jam saw riders attacking the three rail sections at the top of the course with their most creative moves. The 20-minute jam session featured eight riders from five countries, namely Japan, Canada, Finland, Sweden, and the United States.
Monster Energy’s Darcy Sharpe came into the Rail Jam fresh off winning his first X Games gold in Snowboard Slopestyle on Saturday. Known for his diverse jib tricks on rails, the 23-year-old from Comox, Canada, stoked the crowd by delivering different lines and fresh moves on every attempt. Standouts such as bluntslide 270 on the rainbow rail, Cab lipslide fakie, hardway switch 270 bring-back, lipslide 270 out, frontside boardslide to fakie, and 50-50 360 out on the monster rail earned Sharpe a well-deserved silver medal in the new discipline right behind Minnesota’s Jesse Paul in first place.
Also cracking into the top three in the inaugural Rail Jam, Monster Energy’s Sven Thorgren brought the right jibs to the battle. In a free-flowing progression session, Thorgren raised the bar by posting technical standouts like backside 360 to 50-50 to frontside 180 out, Cab 270 on 450 out, Indy grab to backside lipslide fakie, and Cab 450 on 270 out for the bronze medal.
After winning his third consecutive Big Air medal the night before, the 25-year-old from Stockholm, Sweden now holds six X Games medals (1 gold, 1 silver, 4 bronze).

As the final event in a spectacular four-day action sports showcase, Monster Energy Snow Bike Best Trick shut down X Games Aspen 2020 with a bang.
The crowd at Buttermilk Mountain was stoked to see back-to-back gold medal winner Rob Adelberg defend his title in the six-rider final. It was only the third time the relatively young discipline was contested at X Games, and the progression of the sport was on full display.
In terms of riding technique, Snow Bike Best Trick shares similarities to freestyle motocross with a focus on spectacular spins and acrobatics. The field of riders includes seasoned motocross innovators but also freestyle snowmobile experts. Since no standardized snow bikes are available on the market, riders devise their own custom conversion kits to transform motocross machines into freestyle-ready snow bikes with rear-mounted track drives.
In preparation for X Games, snow bike contestants practice new tricks in secrecy, relying on foam pits to safely dial in their new maneuvers. Once the contest kicks off, riders receive two attempts to send their tricks over a choice of two Super Kicker Ramps – similar to motocross jumps – over a 40-foot long gap onto a 12-foot tall snow landing.
After claiming silver in the event at X Games Aspen 2019, Monster Energy’s Brett Turcotte stepped to the plate as a top competitor in snow bike freestyle. His weekend at Aspen 2020 had been a tough one: The 31-year-old from Clearwater, Canada, came into Friday’s Snowmobile Freestyle final ready to unveil a brand-new move. But after taking two falls on the new Carolla Flip body varial, the previous gold medalist left empty-handed.
This was about to change in Snow Bike Best Trick, although Turcotte had to battle. On his first attempt, he threw a heel clicker backflip, but abandoned the spin in mid-air. Tossing his snow bike to the ground, Turcotte walked away unscathed, while his bike suffered visible damage.
Thanks to his pit crew, Turcotte was able to return for a second shot at the title. Hitting the super ramp at full speed, the seasoned snow bike rider pulled an extended superman backflip – hanging from the handlebar horizontally in mid-air – for 79.33 points and the top spot.
But before it was a done deal, Turcotte had to wait a tense moment while Rob Adelberg took a final attempt at spinning a frontflip for a potential walk-off victory. Ultimately, the defending gold medalist stuck the rotation but could not ride out the trick, making Brett Turcotte’s first X Games snow bike gold official.
“I am literally at the last ounce of energy. That was the longest wait of my life watching Adelberg rotate that frontflip around. It’s awesome to be able to come back here year after year and chase after these medals,” said Brett Turcotte on winning the Snow Bike Best Trick gold medal at X Games Aspen on Sunday.
Sunday night’s gold medal brings Brett Turcotte’s X Games medal count to eight (3 gold, 4 silver, 1 bronze). It also marks his first victory in Snow Bike Best Trick, a sport he has supported from day one. In February 2016, Turcotte made history as the first rider to land a backflip on a snow bike and he claimed double silver medals at X Games Aspen 2019 in both Snow Bike Best Trick and Snowmobile Freestyle.
Also rising to the podium in the final event, Monster Energy’s Jackson Strong is no stranger to freestyle tricks on dirt or on snow. Previous to X Games Aspen 2020, the 28-year-old from Lockhart, Australia, owned eleven X Games medals including six motocross gold, and a Snow Bike Best Trick silver medal from Aspen 2018.
Strong started in the final wearing a #24 Los Angeles Lakers basketball jersey in tribute to NBA superstar Kobe Bryant, who had tragically passed away earlier on the same day. Although he did not get the full extension on a backflip on his first attempt, Jacko pulled a nac nac to no-footer backflip on his second run and finished the night with a highest score of 75.66-point for the bronze medal, his twelfth X Games medal (6 gold, 4 silver, 2 bronze).
As the final trophy of the night, X Games presented Monster Energy freeskier Colby Stevenson with the Jeep Best in Snow Award for making history as the first-ever rookie to win the Ski Slopestyle competition. What a weekend!
