Taylor Gold's winning run at Red Bull Double Pipe is as crazy as you'd think

Do you think this video is Nice? Rank it.

20-year-old snowboarder Taylor Gold is on a roll right now. After winning the U.S. Open earlier this month, Gold went to the Red Bull Double Pipe event and totally dominated. He struggled at first adjusting to the side-by-side superpipes (who didn't really?), but once he got a handle on it Gold took it to another level. Dropping a double Michalchuk, a switch Michalchuk, and a couple harrowing transfers, Gold's winning run was awarded a 95.6. Chase Josey and Arthur Longo came in second and third, respectively, but came nowhere close to matching Gold's incredible run.

A recap of the Red Bull Double Pipe will air on NBC on April 12 at 2:00 pm ET..

Snowboarders got the hang of the first-ever double pipe pretty quickly

Do you think this video is FTW? Rank it above.

What's better than one superpipe? Two superpipes side-by-side, obvi. Red Bull built the first-ever Double Pipe for a contest at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado, and it's as crazy looking as it sounds. Consisting of two halfpipes connected by a 4' spine, the Double Pipe is 180' wide and 550' long. Snowboarders Greg Bretz, Louie Vito, and Scotty Lago were among the first to ride this thing. The setup took a little getting used to, but the riders adapted quickly and were blasting transfers between halfpipes in no time, although Bretz did eat it pretty bad on his first attempt.

The Red Bull Double Pipe contest takes place March 22-23 and will air on NBC on April 12 at 2:00 pm ET.

Danny Davis's X Games SuperPipe gold medal is a victory for stylish snowboarding

Danny Davis won the gold medal in men's snowboard superpipe on Sunday night in the final event of X Games Aspen 2014. It was the first time Davis had made the final in six Winter X appearances, let alone his first medal. But the best thing about Davis's victory is that it showed that there is a place on the podium for stylish snowboarding in contests. Davis didn't win the gold medal by spinning the most, he did it because he made his tricks look good. Sure he threw in the double corks that have become standard contest fare, but Davis's first two tricks on his winning second run were a floaty backside 360 and a massive switch method, a maneuver that is becoming Davis's signature. Contrast that with Swiss snowboarder Iouri Podladtchikov, who was unable to land his hyper-technical switch frontside 1440 "YOLO flip" and finished sixth.

We'll have to see what Olympic judges think of Davis's style over tech approach, but Davis isn't changing anything. "I'm going to ride this switch method train as long as it will last," he said after the contest.
