Winter X Games
Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen was the site of a long, wild weekend for the 2007 Winter X Games. Here are some of the winners and upsets.<br><br>It has been three years since Steve Fisher took home gold at the Winter X Games, but his 2007 comeback proved worthy. His frontside air, backside 540 and frontside 900 were among the best of his runs at Buttermilk.
The Flying Tomato isn't used to losing. He threw his big 1080's, but losing speed and clipping his board on the run cost him points. Too bad his countless X Games and Olympic gold medals couldn't lift him out of second place.
Aussie Torah Bright showed some patriotism from down under with her winning air to fakie tailgrab, McTwist and switch backside 500 on a very special holiday, Australia Day.
Even though Gretchen Bleiler's frontside 900 wasn't good enough for gold, she did rank eighth in SI.com's Best-Looking Athletes list (see link below).
Wiigin' out, Andreas busted his frontside 1080 for X Games gold.
Deja vu? Jacobellis (lower right) lost gold at the 2006 Winter Olympics by wiping out during a celebratory trick. At this year's X Games, the snowboarder lost her balance and couldn't get her speed back in time, sliding on her back into second place.
Luck had it for Joanie Anderson, who flew past Jacobellis after her unfortunate wipeout to win gold.
Tanner Hall and his gravity-defying switch cork 1080.
The Frenchmen made X Games history with his winning switch 1080, and the highest score ever (95.0).
Grete Eliassen, 19, had the highest airs during the superpipe, with huge 500's and two 700's.
On the 18th lap of the snocross race - the longest in X Games history - Hibbert's ride almost ran out of gas before he took first place.
