Torstein Horgmo’s Triple Cork X-Games Perfect Score

You know how I said Torstein Horgmo is the boss of all bosses? Well he proved it at X-Games over the weekend.

But first watch this clip that Torstein posted on his blog not long before X-Games from a jumps session at Keystone. Backside 1440 Triple Cork … and then Switch Backside 1440 Triple Cork! What. The. Fuck.

The Keystone vid was a precursor to Torstein’s tricks at the X-Games Big Air final – he locked away a backside triple cork, then stomped the first switch backside triple cork landed in competition, scoring a perfect 50 out of 50 score.  But with one rider still left to drop, when good mate Mark McMorris slightly skidded the landing of his Cab 1440 Triple Cork, both the young Canadian and Norwegian were tied on a best two-scores of 94. On countback, Torstein took the Gold Medal for his perfect scoring last jump.

Beyond epic, don’t you think? Watch the guys chat about it here:

But McMorris didn’t rest on his silver-medalled laurels long, landing the first triple cork ever seen in snowboarding slopestyle competition on his way to X-Games Slope Gold the next day. Well done, sir!

Planes, trains and automobiles ... and buses. What a rad trip with @marygiorgi🗻❄️🏂🇯🇵 #Japan #travel #snowboarding #bus #coach #highway #road #tunnel #snow #holiday #transport #iphoneography #vsco #capturehakuba
The reality of 40+ cm of fresh at @hakuba_cortina: get to the Happo bus stop half an hour early to try and get on the first 7:30am bus (and fail), spend 35 minutes packed like sweating sardines inside the second (or third) bus, then wait in line with 300 of you new friends for the bottom lift to open at 8:30am (pictured), just to wait another half an hour at mid-mountain for the top lift to open, then fight crowds all day before hustling in the line with 200 or so to get the 3:50pm bus home. But is it worth it? Hell yes! ❄️❄️❄️🗻🏂 #snowboarding #deep #powder #snow #hakuba #cortina #hakubavalley #treeruns #powturns #fresh #snow #treeriding #japan #steeps #crowds #crowded #chairlift #queue #line #bus #japan #traveljapan #capturehakuba @hakuba @liquidsnowtours @skijapanniseko @minttours
