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.

Scotty James HIGHLIGHT REEL | X Games Aspen 2020 | X Games

X Games – Scotty James took his second consecutive X Games Snowboard SuperPipe gold at X Games Aspen 2020 and continued an astounding streak of major contest wins that dates back to December 2018: He has now won 10 in a row — every contest he has competed in across events including X Games (twice!), Burton U.S. Open, Dew Tour and the FIS World Cup circuit. He said he’s a fan of the new format, with ranking based on overall impression instead of the traditional best of 3 scored runs format. “It was an amazing night. The variety was really cool and it definitely tested me,” he said in his gold medal interview. James now owns the second-most gold in the history of the discipline (3), behind Shaun White (8). James also has the second-most medals (5), also behind Shaun (10). James is just the third man to take back-to-back wins in the discipline: Shaun White won 6 in a row between 2008-2013; Danny Davis did it at Aspen 2014 and 2015.  —- Progression at its finest!
