UPDATE: Shaun White drops out of slopestyle
Hometown: Carlsbad, California
Olympic Outlook: What can we say about Shaun’s pipe riding that you don’t already know? For the last four years he’s been the one to beat and after his Grand Prix performances that doesn’t look it will be changing. Love him or hate him there’s no debate that he goes the biggest and continues to outpace other riders with the most progressive tricks.
Potential Downfall: He’s not actually unbeatable as we saw when Greg Bretz took him out at the Dew Tour earlier this season. He does have off-days and he’s got that nagging ankle injury.
