Taylor Gold impressed all when he took the win at the heavy, heavy pipe contest that was the Burton U.S. Open this year, throwing creative grabs into a highly technical pipe run that solidified his spot at the top of the podium.

He proved that performance was no fluke here at the double pipe, landing clean, technical runs mixed with old-school grabs -- like this Taipan here -- to advance out of semifinals in the top position and then take the win at the end.
