Watch what what Sven Thorgren got up to when he hit up Riksgränsen, Sweden for the Riks Banked Slalom.
We’re always down to watch Sven Thorgren shred. The young Swede has really stepped up his game this season with a series of solid contest results and some insane edits (his one from Nine Knights is an absolute must-watch).
Sven hit up the Riks Banked Slalom a couple weeks back and aside from winning the bloody thing with a blistering time of 1.14.67, Sven logged a bunch of extra footage on a sick quarterpipe feature.
From Junkyard: We followed Sven Thorgren up to the very north of Sweden, Riksgränsen, for the third annual Riks Banked Slalom.
Riksgränsen is classical ground for snowboarding and a lot of historical moments have gone down there in the last 20-25 years.
This year the event was visited by riders like Ingemar Backman, Hampus Mosesson, Jacob Wilhelmson, Jacob Söderqvist, Joni Malmi and it featured a photo exhibition by Calle Eriksson, an auction with prints from Vincent Skoglund, a unique live screening of ”TANS” movie ”1997 Forever” with a live accompanied music set.
