The two plankers got their chance in the Eagle Superpipe today and wow, did they ever show off their skills. The ladies' led things off and the U.S.A.'s Maddie Bowman showed that wins in Copper and XGames were no fluke and took her third straight Gold with a 85.2 on her first run.

The men's competition wound up tightly bunched, with all three men on the podium scoring in the 93's. The U.S.A. got both the top two spots with David Wise showing why he secured XGames gold and scoring a 93.8 and Torin Yater-Wallace just two tenths of a point back at 93.6 France's Kevin Rolland, who always seems to excel in the Eagle Superpipe (finished 2nd in the 2011 FIS World Ski Championships here) was just behind at 93. Full men's results available here.
