Shaun White sends it in Superpipe finals on Saturday at the Nike Open at Breckenridge
Shaun White's tight pants: After just four days on his snowboard this season, White dominated the Superpipe semifinals on Friday with a nearly perfect score of 98.00. In finals on Saturday he launched a massive backside air on his first hit then followed it up with a 900, backside 540, frontside 540 stalefish, double McTwist 1260 and alley oop backside rodeo to beat out Louie Vito and Iouri Podlachikov. Colorado locals didn't fare as well: Matt Ladley finished sixth and Steve Fisher finished seventh.

Iouri Podlachikov came back from a bad slam in his first run to finish in second place in the Men's Snowboard Superpipe finals at the Nike Open at Breckenridge on Saturday
I-Pod's faceplant: Podlachikov's second place Superpipe finish was doubly impressive considering he smashed his face up on the last trick of his first run in finals. Ouch!

Kelly Clark turns the women's competition upside down at Breckenridge
The other women just can't: In the women's Snowboard Superpipe finals Kelly Clark -- the defending Dew Cup champ -- continued her long reign of dominance, beating out Aspen's Gretchen Bleiler and Chinese rider Xuetong Cai without even breaking out the 1080, her biggest trick. Maddy Shaffrick, from Steamboat Springs, finished fourth in finals after winning in semifinals.
