    The 13-year-old Norwegian snowboard talent, Marcus Kleveland, becomes the youngest athlete by far to accomplish a triple cork. Not more than three years ago the first triple cork in history was landed by Torstein Horgmo (NOR). And now a 13-year-old kid from Dombås, Norway has accomplished the most progressive trick ever done within snowboarding. Marcus, a snowboarder since the age of 3, has completed double corks since he was 11 years old. But last fall and this winter, the triple has been his main focus on the trampoline. -I was inspired when I saw Torstein Horgmo landed the triple cork for the first time three years ago, says Marcus. -Since then I have wanted to try it, and the first time I dared to try was at the Red Bull Performance Camp in Sun Valley last year. But the jump there was too small, and I landed on ice. Now everything was perfect, though. The youngster grew up a stones throw from the slopes in his hometown of Dombås, and his parents never had to chase him out to practice: –This is something I do for myself, because I think it’s fun. Nobody is pushing me to do this, says the first year teenager, while his family is sitting nearby in the sun, enjoying themselves with their favorite entertainment. Louie Vito: I remember seeing an edit of Marcus a couple of years ago and I had to ask my Norwegian friends who this was from that was so sick. I’m stoked to see him progressing at such a fast rate but having fun doing it at the same time. I hope to see this kid around for years to come!

      ONE RUN x HYPED! Markus Kleveland Here is Markus Kleveland taking a quick run in Val Senales. The idea of a ONE RUN is to capture the everyday riding of people, what and where they normally ride, how they like to ride, and a way for people to showcase their own creativity and riding style. It is also always fun to watch how people snowboard when they snowboard just to snowboard. Nitro is creating an on-line contest called ONE RUN in collaboration with their up coming film; Hyped! The idea is to get people (you) to go out and capture your favorite type of snowboarding, through your favorite part of the park, top to bottom run, or anything else. Be it a run through rails in the streets, park jumps, powder-runs, bombing hills, pipe runs or whatever. The important thing is that this type of riding is what makes you want to snowboard. We have gotten all of our guys to go out and film a ONE RUN of their favorite type of boarding. These videos will be released once every week. We encourage kids to go out and film their own ONE RUN, and submit it for a chance to get there run in our upcoming movie Hyped! along with other prizes. The idea is to show how diverse everyone´s riding is. No one snowboards the same and that is what makes snowboarding so special! Our team of riders (Eero Ettala, Jon Kooley, Austin Smith, Bryan Fox, Justin Bennee, Markus Keller, Gjermund Braaten, etc) will pick out the top three runs they think are the most inspiring, creative and showcase the persons true passion for snowboarding. 1st place will have a quest appearance in the Nitro Hyped! video + Nitro Limited edition HYPED! Snowboard + Hyped! gear 2nd place will win a free Nitro snowboard + Hyped! gear 3rd place will win a free pair of Raiden bindings + Hyped! gear The Audience Award: The ONE RUN video on our Facebook page (www.facebook.com/nitrosnbrds) with the most comments and likes will win a Nitro Snowboard signed by our Team Riders.
