With only one jump remaining, Torstein Horgmo had to put it all on the line, and did it in spectacular fashion. Laying down a switch backside triple-cork 1440, (The first ever in competition history), he clinched gold and X-games history with one epic jump.
“I can’t believe it,” said Horgmo. “I tried it a week ago and I thought I’d give it a shot here. Any of the other podiums I’ve been on ever, this was the best one for sure. This was the craziest level of riding that I’ve ever been a part of.”
