    Fact: Star Snowboarders don’t play H.O.R.S.E. At least Oakley’s Norwegian Ripper Torstein Horgmo doesn’t. He’s all business. So business, in fact, that when he wants to throw down head-to-head in friendly competition, he calls the game ‘In Your Face’ (we’ll make an acronym of it…I.Y.F.). He did just that with Oakley family member Halldor Helgason recently. And he has the video to prove it. There’s some sick sh** up in there.

    Torstein Horgmo’s season was nothing short of tantalizing. The coveted Dew Cup was all but wrapped up for him as he mashed into Snowbasin for the Toyota Championships this past week. But it didn’t come without drama. Torstein threw down big time with perfect style on the rail and a cab double 10 to a switch backside 9 on the last two jumps. The performance scored him a 93.75 to grab the third podium spot – enough to grab the first Dew Cup of his career. All on the heels of him busting out a huge triple cork in the Snowboard Big Air Contest at Winter X Games 15, the very first ever landed at Winter X, dazzling the amped up crowd on hand and grabbing the Gold medal.

    The coveted Dew Cup was all but wrapped up for Torstein Horgmo as he mashed into Snowbasin for the Toyota Championships. But it didn’t come without drama. Oakley’s Norwegian ripper, who has been killing it all season on the Dew Tour and beyond, needed a fifth place finish or better in the Slope contest to seal the deal. A nice little scare materialized after first round of the contest, as he sat in the 10th position after a shaky landing on a cab 10 double off the second jump. Fellow Oakley Snowboard Ripper Mark McMorris, fresh off some solid performances at Winter X himself, smashed his way to a second place finish at the Slope event.
