Bronze at X Games Oslo
What a day! Oslo delivered beautiful weather and a massive crowd when it was time for our Big Air contest at Töyen. 15’000 tickets had been sold and I believe that there were at least a bonus of 5-10’000 people watching from the outside of the arena as well. The atmosphere when you were standing on the top of the 57 meter high scaffolding jump was incredible. I felt very honored to be skiing in front of all these people and I will remember that boost for a long time!
Before my first run I had a great feeling. I wasn’t to nervous and had decided to enjoy this moment. I dropped in feeling strong, but on the take off something happened. I got off balance, ended up a little short and crashed. Whoops…
For the 2nd run I became very focused and pretty nervous. I took some more speed and managed to land a switch 720 nose mute. It was probably the best switch 7 that I’ve ever done, so I was very pleased. Although, if I had landed that first one as planned, I would’ve liked to try that sw 1o…
I can’t believe that I’ve now managed to win two X Games medals in my career, something I could only dream for as a kid. I’m overwhelmed and the new piece of bronze is very welcome in my price shelf!

A want to send out a massive thank you to all the people who came from Torsby to watch me compete in Oslo! You really made this competition one of my best ones so far! I was standing on the top and I could see a massive yellow ocean of people that was cheering for me, nearly 100 in total. It was a pretty unreal feeling! Thank you thank you thank you!
