Norwegian Torstein Horgmo maintained the lead in a close contest against Olympic gold medalist Shaun White in the men’s snowboard slopestyle finals and Jamie Anderson won the women’s event Saturday in the second stop of the inaugural Winter Dew Tour.
The 21-year old Horgmo took the lead on his first run and the field was unable to best his score of 92.67. His winning run included technical tricks on the rails and the flat box and a cab 900 on the first jump, to a backside 900 on the second jump. He finished with a switch backside 1260 on the final jump.
“This means a lot to me,” Horgmo said. “Winning a contest is fun. I still don’t feel like I beat anybody here today. I’m only trying to beat myself at the contest. I got my win now. I’m super stoked. I don’t think I really realize it yet.”
