Last week I won the award for "rider of the year" in Norway at snowboard awards! I was also nominated for "rider of the decade" with amazing riders like Andreas Wiig, Mikkel Bang, Mads Johnson & Danny Larsen - Andreas ended up winning the award, well deserved! Thank you to all of you who voted for me - it means a lot!!! When you work hard for something it feels good to be gifted appreciation from others around you. Yet, more importantly is what snowboarding and being out in nature constantly keep reminding me: humbleness is key! After all we are not here on earth to see how important we can be, but to see how much difference we can make in the life's of others.
