The best halfpipe runs ever?

Danny Davis has won the second US Olympic team qualifier, beating a talent-packed field that included Shaun White, amongst others.

The US Grand Prix, held at Mammoth Mountain, saw some of the finest halfpipe riding of the season so far, including possibly the two greatest halfpipe runs ever, as Shaun and Danny battled for the lead.

Danny stomped a big cab double cork, a front nine, his customary crail grab and then back-to-back doubles to finish the job. This sequence nailed Danny a sweet 49.20. Athough Shaun whipped out a new variation on the double, a sketchy landing let him down, leaving Danny to claim the victory.

You can see here the head to head in the second run…or just those 50 seconds of snowboarding.
