ASPEN, CO (Jan. 26) – Devin Logan (West Dover, VT) opened the 2012 Winter X Games with a silver medal in women’s slopestyle.

Logan’s silver run: switch on to the rail, front 270 out, switch lip onto down rail, left 540 tail grab, switch left 540 critical to a left cork 720 tail grab, to a left rodeo 540.
Logan,18, made her third Winter X Games appearance and won her first slopestyle medal.
Canadian Kaya Turski did the first switch 1080 at a Winter X Games, which landed her in the first place position.
Australian Anna Segal made a comeback and she spun both ways and did a clean front 450 off the rail to finish third.
Ladies slopestyle marks the first medals won at X Games with Logan bringing home the first bling for U.S. Freeskiing.
Logan will be looking for a win next at Dew Tour Snowbasin, UT, taking place Feb. 9–12.
I was cheering on Kaya today, we all want to push the sport every contest; I wanted her to put pressure on me to elevate the level of my riding, same with Anna (Segal). I saw her run and I knew I could do it. We all root for each other while pushing each other at the sometime. She gave me a run for my money and that’s what I was asking for.
