Having grown up in Norway and regularly ridden with the likes of Terje Haakonsen, Torstein Horgmo and Andreas Wiig, it’s no surprise that Stale Sandbech has evolved into one of the most talented and stylish riders to come out of the region. A regular on the podium in any event he enters, Sandbech has established himself as one of the pre-eminent threats in Slopestyle, Big Air and even Halfpipe.

When he’s not traveling the globe for contests and photo shoots, he’s usually home, continuing to push the performance envelope and putting together rad – and usually humorous – video parts with his crew of friends, who are collectively known as RK1. It’s all in good fun, but it all benefits Stale and his aspirations of continuing to progress and hopefully land a spot on the Norwegian team at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia.
