New Zealand skier Byron Wells has finished sixth in the superpipe final at the Winter X Games in France.
A day after his older brother Jossi won silver in the slopestyle final, Byron lined up in an eight-man field to contest the superpipe final in Tignes.
He scored 87.66, six points adrift of American winner Torin Yater-Wallace.
At just 17, Yater-Wallace was the youngest skier in the field but managed to defend his gold medal from the last X Games.
"I think everybody skied really well. It was just such a high-level competition. I was so surprised: I couldn't believe I won again," Yater-Wallace said.
Jossi had also contested the superpipe event but was eliminated in the qualification round.
