This year's JOSS has ended and a new edit will be released on a regular basis...
Team Down Under, kicks off, featuring Russ Henshaw, Jossi Wells and Dhanu Danger Sherpa
And while we're at it, here's the edit for Team Europe :
We're heading home after a good night celebrating the French double podium at the Winter X Games superpipe. The wait at Denver International allowed us to export the video, the layover at London Heathrow to upload it and at a photo portfolio. Enjoy!O / Feb 2, 2010
Sometimes life's hard when you're no native English speaker. Today's one of those days, as I'm out of superlatives to describe tonight's superpipe competition. The pressure was up, the skiers were throwing down sicker tricks than ever. Competition was fierce and the tricks were huge!
Kevin Rolland stomped the biggest run ever seen on the Winter X Games with no less than three double flips, scoring him 95 points. He was followed by Jossi Wells. Xavier Bertoni, last year's winner was longtime on the outside looking in. But he threw down a very solid third run, bumping Simon Dumont of the third spot and taking home the bronze medal. Much to the disappointment of the crowd, local boy Peter Olenick did not manage to put his tricks to his feet.
We'll post a complete report, photos and video later on, but right now our french crew has a party to celebrate...Onno Bosch / Feb 1, 2010
The Winter X Games are about to start, and one of the competitors to keep an eye at is Jossi Wells.
Jossi has been killing it this season, with stylish and technical tricks on rails. And moreover he won the last stage of the Dew Tour superpipe, just before finishing first in the slopestyle qualifiers. In Aspen he'll be running in both disciplines as well, so watch out for that double podium!

Jossi Wells has won the halfpipe of the second stop of the Dew Tour, which took place today at Snowbasin. Simon Dumont and Peter Olenick took place two and three (f*ck that ;)). The two best qualifiers, Kevin Rolland and Justin Dorey did not manage to get their place on the podium. Sarah Burke won the women's halfpipe.
