Halldor Helgason’s perfect score at X-Games Big Air Final

Icelandic teenager Halldor Helgason has scored a perfect victory at the Winter X-Games in Aspen.

The Rookie of the Year lay down 2 unbeatable scores of 50, beating Norweigen sensation Torstein Horgmo to take the first ever gold for Iceland at the X Games.

With the riders hurling themselves over the 85 foot gap in a jam sess format, the young man from Iceland sealed the deal in the final with his frontside double cork 1080, followed by a backside double cork 1260. With a score of 100, it is no surprise that Halldor declared himself ‘pretty stoked’.

22 Year old Torstein Horgmo secured his silver medal with a huge backside 1260. The Former X Games Big Air Gold medalist of 2008 and fellow DC team rider scored 2 47’s for his runs, giving him a final score of 94. Torstein’s effortless riding can be seen in the video above.
