X Games Tignes 2013 SuperPipe silver medalist Arthur Longo took third in the double pipe with a creative run that included a switch double backside alley-oop rodeo and back one off the hip to a Cab 7. The first day was kind of scary, said Longo, echoing other riders' sentiments about the difficulty of getting used to the pipe-to-pipe transfer in the early days of practice. Then we all got used to it. Now it's such a good day. It was slushy on the walls ... I feel comfortable, but it's still really challenging, not easy to ride. But the spine is something we never get and it's so enjoyable.
