Shaun White still looks like a shoe-in for the halfpipe gold in Sochi 2014, but he’s by no means guaranteed to take the slopestyle. Torstein Horgmo is one of the men looking to stop him taking the title.
Shaun’s been working hard this season though, and as this edit shows isn’t shy of putting in the work – even when he hasn’t got his own private mountain to do it on. But will it work for him? Who’s got the better tricks and style here – Torstein ‘Matching-Baggies’ Horgmo, or Shaun ‘Biker Mice from Mars’ White?
Incidentally, how cool would it be to be cruising along on a public run and then see these two riding next to you? Though would you recognise gasoline-White?
The real question of course is not who’s gonna win if it comes down to a head to head in the Olympic slopestyle final next year, but who’s ordered the “tall vanilla spice latte” and who’s got the “double tall” one? Let’s face it, both are pretty mincing…
