Last season Jaeger Bailey was Snowboarder Magazine's pick for the prestigious "Rookie of the Year" title. At 20, Bailey is the youngest rider in the field. His tactic to go up against seasoned vets like Paradis and Brisse?
"I hope to bring a new sort of style and unorthodox riding to the table," says Bailey. "I love it when the stakes are reconsidered and new tricks are invented -- tricks that not only push the limits of the sport but also push the limits of what is physically possible" Look for tricks you've never seen before to factor heavily in Bailey's contest entry when it drops on Jan. 7.
