#OsloNXT Instagram contest


One lucky guy just won a free trip to X Games Oslo!

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.

Here's what the jury had to say:
It shows a situation that most snowboarders can relate to; an unpretentious and fun video which made first place among all the contributions. In the video the winner lands flat on his face, but in the contest he made it all the way to the top. We're excited to welcome the winner to Oslo and present everything the city has to offer, including of course X Games!
