Austrian snowboarder Stefan Gimpl would not be denied; as he blew away his competition yet again to walk away with his third straight FIS Big Air event. Gimpl remains undefeated thus far in this season’s LG World Cup Big Air series, having won every contest on the tour.

With the win, Austria’s Gimpl must be breathing easier as Gian-Luca Cavigelli had quickly been gaining ground in the overall series until now.

The event, held in the same venue as yesterday’s King of Style contest, saw the snowboarders match last night’s skiing show with their own version of double corks being the contest staple maneuver.

Podium:

1. Stefan Gimpl – AUT

2. Marko Grilc – SLO

3. Gjermund Braaten – NOR
