Having grown up in Norway and regularly ridden with the likes of Terje Håkonsen, Torstein Horgmo and Andreas Wiig, it’s no surprise that Ståle Sandbech has evolved into one of the most talented and stylish riders to come out of the region. A regular on the podium (X Games, Olympics, Dew Tour, etc.) in any event he enters, Sandbech has established himself as one of the pre-eminent threats in Slopestyle, Big Air and even Halfpipe.
When he's not traveling the globe for contests and photo shoots, he's usually home, continuing to push the performance envelope and putting together impressive – and often humorous – video parts with his crew of friends, who are collectively known as RK1. It's all in good fun, but it's all true to who Ståle is as a person and his aspirations for the career and lifestyle he was to live.
