Canadian rider Maxence Parrot went big -- real big -- in 2014, taking the TTR World Snowboard Tour big air title and winning gold in both big air and slopestyle at X Games Aspen 2014, and ending the season with a third-place podium spot at the Burton U.S. Open. He finished fifth in Sochi, where his backside triple cork 1620s were a bit harder to come by, but will be the man to beat in any upcoming big air or slopestyle event.
