Of COURSE he knows their names, all he does is study, practice, train - you really don't think he is going to know his competitors?
Not only that but how would he not know fellow teammates

Burton - White & McMorris

Oakley - White, McMorris, & Horgmo

Obviously just pre-comp mind games. I'm hoping they all kill, just in it for the show myself.

I don't hate Shaun because I think he is just taking advantage of skill to set himself up when he is done riding. Gotta respect a smart business man. However, I don't think he is a good "frontman" for snowboarding because he doesn't feel passionate. I don't watch his shit and feel stoked to ride. I can watch Horgmo for days though because he represents the whole point of boarding in the first place. I would much rather see anybody but White throw the triple.

The only way SW can beat Mcmorris is if the big B tells mac to take a dive. In the pipe, it would be very hard to beat SW, but I think McMorris is a WAY better rider in slopestyle...Now lets root for Vitto in the pipe

Edit: I'd like nothing more then to see torstien take the thing...but I think that kid is having to much fun to care

yep, that kid from 11th just came in with a big 75.

Mac's first run apart from being amazing just looked easy. SW run 2 better throw down hard.

Its funny how thing unwind. 3 years ago everyone loved shawn. Starting last year the "hipster" snowboarder started not liking him because he was too main stream. Now the damn hipsters are hating on T. Rice. Every good snowboarder goes mainstream. Get over it.

Pretty much everyone eats it a bit in those first jumps.

Yeah smooth as butter. SW held it for 7th, but his runs look...well...clunky

3 years ago? He's an arrogant ass, hope Vitto knocks him off this year

Anyone else watching the real snow vids right now? Hard to call

I know right, WTF is up with the rail section? Haldor was the only one to really throw it in the rails. Bummer he bit it in the jump line
