Eirik has grown up a stone's throw from Drammen ski center, so there was never a doubt that it was winter sports he was going to be doing. Throughout childhood, he spent a lot of time in the ski center to the extent that it practically became his back yard. He continued the training by going to NTG at Lillehammer (Norwegian School for elite sports). This was where he really got his eyes up for competition riding and developed good skills over the three years of high school. Later, he continued the venture with world cup contests in the years that followed. Eirik's best merits are: 1st place, Jr NM Slopestyle, Oppdal; 1st place, Jr. NM Big Air, Oppdal; 3rd place, WC Big Air, Milan; 3rd place, WC Big Air, Mönchengladbach; 2nd place, Big Air, X-games Hafjell.
