6The 22-year-old Swiss set the pace with a big backside 1080 -- three rotations in the air -- that went unmatched throughout the competition .
7The rising star put together three huge , clean jumps that had the crowd roaring .
8Gimpl put the pressure on Cavigelli with a high-scoring opening jump but touched his hand down on his second .
9He came back with a strong third run and clean landing to secure the silver .
10Koski , the gold medalist in the snowboard world championships earlier this year , showed his competitive mettle by coming back from a faltering first run with two skillful jumps .
11Cavigelli said he was relaxed , especially after nailing the first jump , but was excited to have a World Cup title .
12`` I feel great at the moment to have won my first World Cup -- it 's a super great feeling , super special city , and it 's the best , '' Cavigelli said .
13Gimpl said he was pleased with his finish .
