Then at X Games Munich in June, Forsberg returned to the gold medal position. She pulled ahead by clearing this challenging, rocky line with relative ease. "There were girls stuck in the cheater pile," says Forsberg. "I'd tried this line in practice four times and I'd gotten stuck. But then in the race, I waited for two seconds at the bottom and was like, 'This is my chance.'"
