It looks like the Japanese pipe team is going to be a serious threat come Olympics time. Ryo Aono and Ayumu Hirano came in third and fourth, respectively, while Taku Hiraoka came in on the top spot. "I was stoked to stomp another frontside 1260," said Hiraoka. "It's only the second time I’'ve done that in competition."
