Men's Snowboard Slopestyle Report

Report from ESPN on the Men's Snowboard Slopestyle competition on January 29, 2005 at Winter X Games in Colorado.

THE TOMATO FLIES AGAIN

White back to old tricks after injury; Rice nails Double Backflip

Aspen, Colorado - Shaun White served notice to the Snowboard world during the Menís Slopestyle competition Saturday afternoon - the knee is fine and he is back.

White (Carlsbad, Calif.) began Winter X Games Nine the same way he did before a knee injury forced him out of his final two competitions last year - with a gold after dominating the Slopestyle field with a near-perfect run.

The gold improved his medal count to six (four gold, two silver) with two events to go in this, his sixth, Winter X Games.

"I love doing victory laps," said White, whose 93.00 after his first run all but sewed up the first place position. "I didnít know what to expect. Every year is different. Iím just here to have fun."

A smooth-as-silk run with back-to-back Fives, a Front-side over the dealerís choice pit and a Cab-9 over the money booter at the end not only allowed White to have fun, but it also took care of the competition part of his day.

"I had a lot of fun out there today and I canít wait for the SuperPipe (finals on Monday)," White said.

For the second time in as many years, Danny Kass (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.) earned a silver in Slopestyle. He pulled a huge Backside Rodeo to Frontside 5 and a Backside 9 on the booter.

"This was the funnest Slopestyle event ever," Kass said following a score of 90.33. "The course was just sick."

Travis Rice (Jackson, Wyo.) also returned with a vengeance. After missing Winter X Games Eight with a shoulder injury, Rice proved he was back to the form that put him atop the medal stand in 2002.

He nailed a Double Backflip over the gap as well as a Backside Rodeo Nosegrab on the booter. The course was definitely to his liking and helped the 22-year-old add a bronze medal to his collection with a score of 87.00.
