While watching the Winter X-Games during snowboard superpipe, there was a scoring mechanism that wasn't clear to me. Looking into it, Shaun White had won the event six years in-a-row, and had a perfect score of 100.00 in 2012.
From what I had gathered, scoring seems to depend on difficulty of tricks, speed, height of jumps, and execution (landing tricks cleanly, etc.) among a few things. Outside of the occasional judge/commentator expressing how one can improve his next run, not much was elaborated on the scoring mechanism.
How are snowboard superpipe results calculated?
Extra: Do these calculations apply to other Winter X-Games events?
