Canadian Maxence Parrot won X Games gold in the men’s snowboard slopestyle final on Saturday in Aspen, Colo., beating teammate Mark McMorris, who settled for silver after a scary crash.
Parrot was sitting second behind McMorris heading into the final run. The 19-year-old from Bromont, Que., landed back-to-back triple corks for the first time in X Games slopestyle history to take home the hardware.
“I tried it the whole practice this morning and it didn’t work out,” Parrot told ESPN.
“I guess with all the adrenaline and the crowd it went down and I was just so stoked to stomp two in a row. It’s a good feeling.”
“I think it sets me up pretty good for Sochi. I would love to do this (run) in Sochi and maybe improve more.”

Parrot also won gold on Friday night in men’s snowboard big air.
McMorris, of Regina, made his fourth career X Games appearance and was looking for his third straight slopestyle gold, but was forced to settle for silver silver. He needed to top Parrot’s score on the final run but clipped a rail on the top section of the course and fell.
“It’s too bad, I really wanted to do some stuff but I must’ve just lost my train of thought about what I was doing,” McMorris admitted to ESPN after his final run.
“I wasn’t focused. I just whacked my side and lost my breath. I stood up and rode down so I should be alright.”
McMorris is considered Canada’s top contender in Sochi when slopestyle snowboarding makes it’s Olympic debut.
Stale Sandbech of Norway rounded out the podium winning bronze.
It was a disappointing day for Canadian Sebastien Toutant, who struggled to land his run throughout the final finishing seventh.
