Though Max Parrot came out on top of The Real Cost Snowboard Big Air at X Games Aspen 2020, judges said it was an incredibly close contest between him and Mark McMorris for the top two spots. Analyst (and Mark’s brother) Craig McMorris broke down the comparative analysis in the broadcast, puzzling out what the judges might be thinking before the final rankings were confirmed: “Mark has landed 5 jumps, Max has landed 4. Mark spun 4 ways, Max spun 3, Max has more 1620s, Mark has more landed jumps. What do you do?”

After a bit of deliberation about exactly that calculus, the judges sided with Parrot.

But the silver medal was still a win for McMorris in one respect: his 18th career medal brings him even with Shaun White’s longstanding record for most medals from X Games winter disciplines. White has been the king of that hill since 2008. McMorris is scheduled to compete at more X Games comps in 2020. It seems likely that he’ll own this record outright within the next two months.

McMorris’ 18 medals come from 24 winter starts (that’s 75 percent of his starts). Shaun’s 18 have come from 27 winter starts (66.6 percent of his winter starts). Clearly, the sky is the limit for Mark McMorris in 2020.

RYAN NYQUIST: I’m Afraid of Heights | World of X Games | X Games

X Games – With the exception of a few vert riders, most of the mid-school BMX professionals from the 1990s and early 2000s have moved on from X Games competition. Not Ryan Nyquist though. Ryan started competing at X Games in 1997 and still gets invited. He’s not getting invites based on legacy either; he’s still progressing his skills on BMX Dirt and Park at a remarkable pace. Despite the everyday demands of family life at age 41, Nyquist manages to make riding a daily priority, and he’s expanded his skills to incorporate some of the world’s toughest lip trick combinations into his riding. Normally, most riders would be happy with a simple x-up over a box jump at age 41, but Ryan Nyquist isn’t done with his endless trick list just yet. Here, Brando catches up with Nyquist from the desert… Progression at its finest! X Games is your premier destination for all things action sports, music, lifestyle and everything in between.
