The very first X Games women’s Superpipe medal to ever be presented outside of the U.S. goes to The House team rider Kaitlyn Farrington! And the games continue to be a big ball of firsts as this is Kaitlyn’s first X Games medal. She stomped her last run in the finals which consisted of a bs 540, straight air, a monster bs 900, inverted fs 720 and a cab 540 to finish. Kaitlyn laid it down and was able to top a list of some pretty impressive riders. In the top 6, 4 of the women are Olympians and one, Torah Bright, is the Olympic gold medalist. Great job Kaitlyn! That’s quite an accomplishment, and you’ve earned it.
