2010 seems to be a good year for the Helgasons. They were busy competing at the Winter X Games in Aspen and collecting several awards last week.
We are proud to congratulate Eiki for the TWS Readers Choice Award and Halldór for two (yes he won both!) Rookie of the Year Awards. Snowboarder Mag Rookie of the Year 2010 and TWS Rookie of the Year. Have a look at helgasons.com for some pics and a little video of Eikis victory speech and the TWSNOW article of the 11th Annual TWS Riders Poll Awards
Blue Tomato teamrider Halldor Helgason just won the X Games Big Air!
After his first place at the Slopestyle Qualification on Saturday (got 8th in the finals cause he couldn't stomp all his tricks) he owned the X Games Big Air Event with an undefeatable score.
Halldor pulled a double-cork fs10 and a double-cork bs12 in his first two runs... Two times perfect score of 50 points!
