All Norway: O’s Torstein Horgmo Claims Second, Stale Sandbech Third at Oakley & Shaun White Air + Style Beijing
The heart of Beijing shook, rattled and rolled on Saturday night. Electricity shot through the freezing air in China’s Capital as Oakley & Shaun White Air + Style Beijing dazzled the Far East crowd with a tantalizing snowboarding and music spectacle. And the riding was, well, as epic as expected in the breathtaking Olympic “Bird’s Nest” Stadium – dominated, for the most part, by Norwegians. Throwing down mental maneuvers rarely seen before the contest, it was Ulrik Badertscher who upended the field for the Air + Style Beijing Title, took home $10,000 for claiming the “Red Bull Best Trick” and tallied a whopping 1,000 TTR Points. But up to the last moments of the competition, it was no done deal by any means.
