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.

In the days leading up to their walk down the ESPYS Red Carpet, olympic gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christensen jetted around the country with the Woodward Team. The private jet stopped at Woodward Copper so the pros could shred the summer snow terrain park, then off to Woodward Tahoe to skateboard, bounce on tramps and high-five some campers along the way. The adventure ended in Los Angeles at the ESPYS where both athletes were nominated for Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete. At the end of the night, Sage took home the honors adding an ESPY to his trophy collection. Go to WoodwardTV.com for more!
Camp Woodward will welcome the first-ever Olympic gold medalists in men's slopestyle to the Woodward Copper camp in Colorado on July 14th and Woodward Tahoe on July 15th. The two Olympic slopestyle gold medal winners will lend their expertise this summer to campers this summer at Camp Woodward. Campers will get the opportunity to hang out, train and grab photos with both Joss and Sage. There is still time to sign up for the summer camps. If you can't make these dates and there are always pros dropping in.
