Torgeir, or TG as he is known amongst friends, is a man of many talents… When not busy tearing the up the contest scene on the TTR tour or at the X-Games, he finds sanctum in playing the guitar, breaking down rock classics on his little travel guitar riff for riff, solo for solo.. TG’s no 1 objective this coming winter is to make the cut for the Norwegian Olympics Slope style team.. That’s easier said than done, looking at the sheer talent on the NOR team. However, the prospects are looking great, considering he’s one of very few riders to put down 1620’. On top of that, amldst his Olympic preparations, TG still found time to film for Markus Keller’s movie Chamäleon, both in Saas Fee and at Superpark.. Thumbs up TG!
