X Games Aspen: Money Booters

The final day of competition at X Games Aspen 2014 was so sick.  19 year old Indiana native, Nick Goepper went back to back in men's slop defending his crown.   Kaya Turski topped a stacked field to claim her 4th Gold in Women's slope.  Turski the Canadian Olympian had ACL surgery just 5 months ago and managed to be ready for X Games through hard work and determination.

In the sled sports Tucker Hibbert proved to be un-beatable for the 7th time in a row.  Adaptive rider Mike Schultz took home his fourth Gold in adaptive sno cross.

Danny Davis capped off X Games Aspen, 2014 with a super stylie run in men's snowboard super pipe to grab the Gold.  Davis, originally from Michigan, is stoked to be a U.S. Olympian and to represent the whole FRENDS CREW on top of the X Games podium.

So that's a wrap.  X Games Aspen is in the books for 2014.  We saw 7-peats, 5-peats 4-peats and more unusually...a few first time winners.   The international field provided a preview for the upcoming Olympics in Sochi, Russia and offered a glimpse into the next-gen of riding with some breakout performances from teenage riders who will be ready to dominate for years to come. 

Special thanks to everyone.
