2. Place at the Sweet Rumble in Trysil

28 11 2010

This week has been so good! Staying in a pretty decent hotel with a surfwave and a spa, a huge jump right outside and a crew of homies who was sending it all day. The contest on friday and saturday was pretty hardcore to be honest. For qualies and semis, we got 3 runs, where our two best results counted, and we had to do two different tricks.

I got through to the knockout finals by doing a fs 9 and a bs 12, and a bs 10 and a bs rodeo. We were 8 guys left, and the head to head was about to go down! I got really tough competition form Roger Kleivdal and Sondre Tiller who did bs doublecork 10 and a perfect cab 12. Somehow I went big and landed my bs 12 two times in a row and it sent me to the superfinal up against Torgeir Bergrem.

I think we were both nervous at the top, and we both knew it could go either way.. We agreed that winner takes it all and buy drinks all night for the loser. I became the lucky loser yesterday hehe. Torgeir won two out of three rounds and he is now the heavyweight champion of Sweet Rumble! Congrats buddy, you killed it.

It was time for the legendary Sweet Rumble party in a lavvo in the woods. I don´t need to say more..

Gotta bring some of these cans for the party..

The jump is massive init bruv?

Good guys equals good times!

Well, now I’m back in Torpo hanging out and getting ready to leave for Air&Style China! The jump looks really good:

Just met my buddy Jørn Henning at home. Getting ready to hit the slopes!

I will put up a video from the contest tomorrow. Later.
