Burton U.S. Open 2012 – mens’ halfpipe winning runs

We never though we’d be looking at a rider in this get-up and think to ourselves “thank God he’s dialled it back a bit”. Shaun White ditches the leopard-print pants of the X-Games, but retains the ability to thrown down an epic run and take another gold. Here’s the routine that had the Burton U.S. Open 2012 sewn up:

1st – SHAUN WHITE


The runs from fellow Yanks Louie Vito and Benji Farrow were like chalk and cheese – Benji’s was double-less, while Louie seemed to be upside down more than the right way up. That earned him the silver in the end – watch below and see if you agree:

2nd – LOUIE VITO

3rd – BENJI FARROW
