  • Being a part of the best team.. Being a part of the best team is great when you´re having success and everybody ´s happy. But its even better when things don’t go your way. That’s when you really figure out what kind of people and companies you work with. I decided to stay in Sölden for the world cup races. Not to watch the races, but because I wanted to be with my team. These guys are great at what they do (athletes, coaches, physios, ski technicians…) but they¨re also great people and some of my best friends. I´m also a proud member of the HEAD ski team. Yesterday we did the annual world cup opening press conference with the HEAD team here in Sölden. Everyone else ready to kick ass trough the winter, and me jumping around on one foot… A lot of people said it must be really depressing to be here?? No, its actually exactly the opposite. I felt so much better after those hours spent with the HEAD crew. Being injured I feel bad because I cant deliver results and excitement on the race hill like I normally do. I will be back sooner or later to do that again, but in the mean time I´m on the side lines watching. Skiing is a risky sport and we´re all used to injuries, but it still feels great when you get the kind of support that I felt yesterday. So thanks everyone! And like I said. It´s good to be a part of a great team when things are good. But when things don’t go you´re way… That´s when being a part of right team gets really important. So tune in on television to watch your favorite sport this weekend live from Sölden. Not only because it’s a great sport, but because its full of great people!

  • One healthy and one healing #achilles. #shithappens

  • Shit happens. And that's exactly what's happened this time. I was out for a little run with the rest of the team in Sölden Austria. We ended the session playing around with a ball. Just holding it up in the air between us. Suddenly I felt something snap in my leg and I knew right away that something was wrong. Achilles. We went straight to the hospital in Innsbruck where I got fast and great service. They concluded the achilles was torn and after 5 minutes of talking I went straight to surgery. A real injury and extremely bad timing just as the season is about to start. But now that it's happened there's not much I can do. Now it's all about looking ahead. Nobody can say 100% sure how long the recovery will take, but I'm ready for the weeks to that are coming. I'll stay in Austria for a while before I go back to Norway and discuss further rehab with the crew at the Olympic Center in Oslo. Like I said. Shit happens!

  • Morning #view

  • @head_ski has got a pretty sweet setup in USA. Bigger is better! #headwhatsyourlimit

  • Lett the downhill season begin! Too bad we start with technical giant slalom...

  • Early morning checked in and ready to go. #Longines

  • Decent DJs last night... #röyksopp #sikt2014

  • The way I see it, my sight is way more important than my skis. @onesight @oakley
