The #oslonxt X Games Instagram contest was held 14-24 January. Among the many great photos and videos, the jury has now selected a winner.
And the winner is ...
Magne is Norwegian, but currently living in Lagos, Nigeria. He is stoked about the prize. Last winter he started hearing rumours that about X Games coming to Oslo, and hoped to be able to go.
– When I was sent to work in Lagos, I thought I wouldn’t be able to experience X Games Oslo live. Then I heard about this contest, and kept my fingers and toes crossed!
Magne is convinced X Games Oslo will be a spectacular event. For years the Norwegians have been doing well in X Games, so he is looking forward to seeing them compete on home turf.
– I’m particularly looking forward to the Big Air comp at Tøyen. It’s going to be legendary!
From Lagos he explains how Oslo is a city that means a lot to him. As he is stationed abroad for long periods at a time, Oslo represents a feeling of coming home.
– Oslo has everything, you can combine city life with the great outdoors. It’s pretty unique how you can go snowboarding on a weekday after work.
