Nixon's favorite Viking, Mikkel Bang, has done it again! The 5th annual Bang Slalom went down in Hemsedal, Norway on Saturday April 29th and was an absolute success.

This year, and for the first time ever, the Bang Slalom was a stop on the Burton Mystery Series and attendance was through the roof. Riders of all ages and ability levels gathered for one of the most fun events in the snowboard industry, where having fun and riding with your friends is the main objective.

Mikkel took 2nd place in the Men’s Pro category, while Norway’s very own Brage Richenberg claimed 1st place and went home with a custom engraved Nixon Sentry watch.
