Shaun White Wins the First Ever Intelligent Design at Park City Mountain Resort!
— Posted by Eric on March 8, 2009
With spectacular blue skies overhead, Shaun White rode a dominating 2nd run to clinch the first ever Intelligent Design at Park City Mountain Resort. Shaun started off with a Frontside 10 off the first 60 foot hit, followed by a Backside 7 on the hip, a Frontside 270 onto the rail leading into the Eagle Superpipe, in the pipe he spun a Backside 9, a Frontside 3 and Cab 10 in the pipe and ended, to raucous applause, with a slow Alleyoop backside rodeo on the huge quarter pipe at the bottom of the pipe.
Shaun wound up the top overall rider, but there were lots of great runs down the Intelligent Design course yesterday, here are the top results:
Shaun White 95.75 $20,000
Charles Reid 90.00 $10,000
Luke Mitrani 82.25 $6,000
Gjermund Braaten 74.00 $5,000
Wyatt Caldwell 71.25 $3,000
