Torstein Horgmo, through to the ‘lympics

We’ve been saying it for a while now, but the Canucks and Nords are gonna take some beating in Sochi 2014, especially in slopestyle. There were a couple of guys almost certain to go through, like Mark McMorris and Stale Sandbech, but with both countries having legions of more than capable riders to choose from there’s been arguments going round the office for months about who will make the cut for the national sides.

Finally though, both countries announced their snowboard teams last night. Read it and weep rest of the world.
