TORAH BRIGHT – 2008 X-Games Superpipe Gold Medalist Dominates the Pipe at the Last Stop of the Dew Tour.

Huntington Beach, Calif. – (February 23, 2009) – In an on-going, victorious snowboarding season, Torah Bright takes home the gold in the final stop of the Alliance of Action Sports (ALLI) Dew Tour Toyota Championship.  Torah’s
second Superpipe run was the best run of the day, earning her an event-high score of 95.5, and beating out Olympians Kelly Clark and Hannah Teter.  It was Torah’s innovative run, consisting of a flawless air to fakie, a Cab 720, Crippler, backside 360, and switch backside 720, that secured her the top spot.

This gold medal is not the first for Torah this season. Torah took home the X-Games gold medal last month while breaking the record for the highest Superpipe score for women in Winter X.  Torah will now set her sights on placing first at the Roxy Chicken Jam in March before gearing up for the 2010 Winter Olympics.

The Toyota Championship win was a great addition to Torah’s strong 2008/2009 season.  Although the persistent rain threatened the day, Torah remained upbeat, “I still managed to land the run I had planned, so I couldn’t be happier.”
