With winning the World Rookie Fest in Livigno 2013, Ole Christian Hagen directly qualified for the upcoming Ästhetiker Winter Mäsh. The 2-man team snowboard contest is going down 13th to 15th of February 2013 in Saalbach Hinterglemm, AUT.
“Team Captain Ole Christian Hagen has selected riding partner Anders Suua to create a Norwegian rookie powerhouse team. Underdogs to hero’s? We’re about to find out…
Considering the level of riding that has been put on the ground at the World Rookie Tour events in the past couple of years, it was not too difficult to offer a direct qualification spot to the winning rider at this year’s WRT in Livigno, Italy. If you wanted some young guns, it’s a damn fine place to start. Christian Haller, Roope Tonteri, Gjermund Bratten and Mathias Wiessenbacher being previous winners.
And if you have any concerns the Rookies are up to the task, maybe think again. Ole Christian took out the World Rookie Fest event with a winning run of Cab 7 to Switch b/s 9 to f/s 1080 to back 9…! Not a bad days work! The direct qualification made him the Captain of Team Rookie, with the difficult task of choosing his riding partner and team mate. He’s came back to us with a compatriot from Norway, Anders Suua – who by the way, is even younger!
One thing that is for sure, there is something in the water up there in Scandinavia… It is a Viking invasion.“
