|How was your 04/5 season? What did you get up to?
The season went pretty fast. I did a couple of comps, but most of the time I was trying to film and I think I’m pretty happy with the shots I got, but I’m still missing out on some kicker shots.What did you think of the Arctic Challenge this year? What makes it so special and different for the riders from the other competitions?
There was no stress, and it was all the way up north of Norway and that was beautiful. And there‚Äôs the extreme big quarterpipe they have.
