UPDATE: Injured during Olympic practice with a broken collarbone.
Hometown: Oslo, Norway
Olympic Outlook: Triples, switch triples, all switch rail lines—Torstein has one of the deepest trick lists out there. After beating out riders like Ulrik Badertscher and Alek Oestreng to make the Norwegian team, and placing second at the Copper Grand Prix Torstein has proven he’ll be a threat a Sochi.
Potential Downfall: Most of Torstein’s wins in the past few years have been in big air. In fact of the seven times he’s done X Games slopestyle he’s never got a podium. He has the capability to kill it but it all depends on whether he can link his lines up.
