Danny Davis grabs gold in Snowboard SuperPipe

The biggest surprise of the day came from Montana native Voisin, a member of the U.S. Freeskiing Olympic team headed to Sochi. As the youngest female skier ever to compete at X Games, she delivered a switch 1080 -- the trick Turski first brought to competition in 2012 -- and briefly took the lead after posting the first score in the 90s on her second of three runs.

Turski answered in her third run, outdoing Voisin with her technical rail section and throwing a flatspin 540, switch 540 Japan and switch cork 720 in the jumps, bumping ahead with a score of 91.33.

SnoCross Adaptive

Mike Schultz won his fourth consecutive gold medal in SnoCross Adaptive on Sunday. Schultz dominated SnoCross Adaptive at X Games in 2010, 2011 and 2013 (the event was not contested at X Games Aspen 2012).

Schultz is an above-the-knee amputee who developed the prosthetic knee technology he and other adaptive racing competitors use. He finished more than 13 seconds ahead of silver medalist Garrett Goodwin and bronze medalist Doug Henry, who both use custom snowmobile seats for paraplegic racers.
