QUOTES
Devin Logan

It was a great day overall, I had a few bobbles in my run that kept my scores down.

Kaya put down amazing runs, so did Anna Segal and Dara Howell. Kaya and Anna have been giving me a run for my money all winter long and they are always pushing me.

At the end of the day I am still really happy. I have had a great season so far and I am looking forward to halfpipe finals on Friday. The halfpipe is perfect!

Kaya Turski
It definitely means a lot to me to win two X Games medals this year. I hope to keep it up. My 1080 wasn't the prettiest, but I got it to my feet. Rails are definitely my forte.
