This week’s Team Oakley Athlete of the week is one of the most exciting young talents in snowboarding, Stale Sandbech. Though just 20, Stale is one of the top Slopestyle and Big Air riders in the world, with podium finishes at the biggest events in the world. Unlike many of his Slopestyle counterparts, Stale will be an Olympic veteran in Sochi, having competed in Vancouver in halfpipe as the youngest ever athlete to represent Norway. Expect Stale to be one of the top threats to win an Olympic medal in the debut of Slopestyle.
Though the six-time X Games medalist has devoted most of the past couple years to riding in the backcountry and filming, with Slopestyle on the Olympic schedule, Grete Eliassen has realigned her sights and is aiming to secure a spot on the US Team for Sochi.
This week’s Team Oakley Athlete of the week is an American snowboarder who really needs no introduction: Shaun White.
