Torstein Horgmo - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Torstein Horgmo is a Norwegian pro snowboarder. Torstein is 5'8", born February 18, 1987. He is recognized for his effortless style and execution of technical jumps along with a mastery of rail skills. Horgmo has competed, and medalled in, a variety of slopestyle and big air snowboarding competitions contributing to his status as one of the top snowboarders in the world, who has helped shape the sport.

Torstein won a gold medal in Snowboard Big Air at the 2008 Winter X Games XII in Aspen, Colorado, after first beating Travis Rice in the finals, and Kevin Pearce in the semifinal. He also won 1st in the Slopestyle Final at the 2009 Winter Dew Tour, beating Shaun White, who won the Slopestyle Final in Breckenridge, Colorado.[1] At the 2009 Winter X-Games XIII, Horgmo was defeated in Big Air by friend and teammate Travis Rice. This event trialed the text-voting system as the only judging system. The riders, including Rice himself, have stated that they do not believe that this voting system produces fair results, as nationality, popularity, and crowd appeal of the tricks can outweigh the technicality of the trick itself. Horgmo performed switch backside 1260's, but was defeated by Rice's backside double rodeo 1080. It is worth noting that both riders threw the same tricks against each other in previous competitions, with Horgmo getting the higher score. Torstein landed his switch backside 1260 without reverting, whereas Travis had to revert both his landings (turning another 180 degrees after landing, because he couldn't stop the rotation).

In Dew Tour winter 2009/10 he took two first place victories over Shaun White in slopestyle, stating his place as one of the best jumpers in the sport.
