Rolland remains arguably the best halfpipe skier in Europe and the continent's best hope for gold at X Games Aspen 2014 and the upcoming Sochi Winter Olympics. To win there, he says, "I have to go really high, I have to do some unnatural stuff, be better on rightside [tricks] and I have to land a new trick that I can't do right now, but I'm working on it and if I land it, I will be happy with myself."
