I don't see TR disapearing from snowboarding anytime soon. As his skills begin to diminish he'll adapt his riding style and find ways to stay in the sport. You can already see him evolve from his comp days to his big mountain stuff. He's a pretty creative guy. I don't see him going the way of Guch or Kevin Jones.

i agree.. Terje was 36 when he went down 7601, so Travis at 29, should have at least a few more years under his belt..

There will be at least one more Brain Farm epic. They took what they learned in TITA and refined it for TAoF (even though I prefer TITA) and really cranked up the marketing exposure and look at the result. It was easily the most successful crossover "true" snowboard flick. I just can't see them not doing a trilogy and that wouldn't happen without T. Rice.

I was on the Union site a few weeks and there was a one pager that just T.RICE in bold orange. I will be looking for the binding brand this weekend while I am watching Red Bull Super Natural.

Just on a side note: I think RICE chose Union because of the R & D they do already. What other company is mixing it up with DuPont to make there product lighter stronger. Rice wants the best equipment and Union offres that.

I'll also vouch for how hard the company principals ride, they shred. As a shop owner, I usually associated with companies who rode hard, as I figured if they didn't that they were just money grubbers who could care less about quality.
