    “It was just f**king amazing to be a part of what just happened tonight,” said Torstein Horgmo, a gold X Games medal dangling from his neck, and still slightly winded after the 18-minute jam session Big Air final. Trailing Oakley teammates Stale Sandbech and defending gold medalist Mark McMorris throughout the final, Horgmo – who won the event in 2011 – had one last chance to land the move he believed would be the difference-maker: the switch backside triple cork 1440, a trick he landed for the first time a week before coming to Aspen and one that had never been landed in competition.
