Every year around this time, the best Snowboarders meet in Oslo, Norway for the TTR 6Star Oakley Arctic Challenge 2011. The event which is known for a progressive and riders driven slopestyle setup, invites only riders who have shown to have what it takes to be amongst the top TTR competitors. This year, the riders list includes names such as Seppe Smits, Torstein Horgmo, Mark McMorris, Ulrik Badertscher, Jamie Anderson, Kjersti Buaas, and our very own young-gun Sage Kotsenburg. Although Sage didn't win the event, as you can see from the video below it's only a matter of time, especially when you take into account the fact that he was one of the youngest riders ever to compete. We wanna send a huge Arnette shout out to Chas Guldemond who took home first, but remember Chas, our boy Sage is right behind you so you best be looking over your shoulder!
Sage going for broke!
