Winter X Games 12

Action sports athlete Kees-Jan van der Klooster "Sjees" from Holland competed in this years winter X Games 12 in Aspen Colorado that took place from January 23rd - 27th.
He raced against some of the top Sitski athletes in the world.
After 4 days of practice and qualifying races the finals were held on the last day of Winter X. All the Mono X racers took off from the starting gate evenly, but by the time the first jump came Sjees pulled into 2nd. The race was very tight between 3 of the 4 racers when mid section of the race course Kevin Bramble who was in first lost his edge around a berm and crashed. Sjees just missing him made the pass and shot into first. He kept his control for the rest of the run and finished with a huge air down to the finish line, taking gold. Congratulations to Sjees and all the Mono X athletes who participated in racing on one of the most dangerous courses in Winter X history.
