A big congrats goes out to Vans Snow Team riders Iouri Podladtchikov and Eric Willet for taking home a gold medal at X Games in Europe! This is the first Winter X Games held outside the United States and featured nearly 150 men and women from across the globe competing for medals and prize money. Iouri held it down in Snowboard Superpipe blasting a double mctwist 1260, which he just started training for last week, to land at the top of the podium. Eric threw down a solid second run in Snowboard Slopestyle that put him in the lead for the gold medal with his mixed tricks of backside 720, frontside double cork 1080 and switch backside 900. Big ups guys!
