    Who comes up with the names of this stuff?
    It is kinda like in figure skating comparing a triple lux with a triple toe loop.

    I'm very impressed with what these guys do on a snowboard, but is sure seems to me that they just launch themselves into the air and spin.

    Didn't they say that he backed out of it, or was that it?

    I look forward to seeing his 2nd run; he just gets sick air.

    That's true, but they do have to come down, ideally in an upright position.

    Re: Double McTwist 1260

    If he has gold locked up going into his final run, he will definitely pull it out just for fun. Come to think of it, I think he will do it in the 2nd run no matter what, just because he's Shaun White.

    Re: Double McTwist 1260

    He blew away the others on that first run and held back on the big one, I bet he gives it a shot on the 2nd run if he is firmly in for the Gold. Good olympic night for the US...

    Yeah I don't think he is going to need it, but it'd be fun to see this double McTwist 1260 people speak of. Sounds more like a Mcdonalds ice cream flavor to me.

    Easier said than done. Most people can't even go straight on flat ground on a snowboard without falling on their butts, let alone flipping down a superpipe.
    It's kind of like basketball, all they do is shoot some round ball into some round hoop that is twice the size of the basketball.

    Re: Double McTwist 1260

    if he has the gold without the 2nd run he probably uses the 2nd run just to pull the Double McTwist 1260

    Re: Double McTwist 1260

    I'm sorry but they need to come up with some new tricks. Give me some flips and spins, not just see how many times you can spin around. There is only so far that this sport can go, and I think the envelope is close to the edge right now.
