Henrik’s singularity of purpose and focus on his chosen sport made him the youngest male medallist in Olympic Alpine skiing history. Aged just 19 he took bronze in the Slalom at the 2014 Sochi Olympics. He followed that with silver in the Giant Slalom at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics. Earlier this year he became Giant Slalom world champion. At 25 years old, Henrik’s winning ways aren’t over yet.
Henrik’s passion for motorcycling is an obsession that long predates his Alpine achievements. As it turns out, Henrik’s association with Husqvarna started way before he became a brand ambassador in 2017. “When I was a little boy there was this ‘thing’ hidden under a tarp in the garage; my dad’s Husqvarna motocross bike. That’s what started it all. I watched VHS videos my dad had like Crusty Demons of Dirt until they wore out. Shortly before I turned 6, I got my first Husqvarna 50cc MX bike and I have been riding ever since.”
