This weekend’s Burton US Open Halfpipe contest was one of the best we’ve ever seen, despite the absence of several of the top guys (namely Shaun White, Ayumu Hirano and Iouri Podladtchikov) from the field.

The pipe was “perfect” according to Kelly Clark, the sun was out and a large crowd gathered to watch the finalists throw down, while the likes of Terje Haakonsen and Scotty Lago played “poacher”, grabbing cheeky runs in between the rounds.

Here are all the video highlights, including the winning runs. You can read our full report on the event here.
