Winter X Games Europe: Eric Willett wins Snowboard Slopestyle Gold

Eric Willett takes Gold in the Snowboard Slopestyle at the Winter X Games Europe. USA’s Sage Kotsenburg followed close behind to win silver. Marko Grilc of Slovenia took the bronze. "I wasn’t really landing my tricks in practice, but somehow it all clicked and came together for me in the final", Willett said about his win. Willett threw down a huge run on his second attempt - including a backside rodeo double and double frontside - and was awarded 91 points for his perfomance.
