Finnish rider Roope Tonteri won gold in both slopestyle and big air at the 2013 FIS Snowboarding World Championships. His all-or-nothing approach can make him inconsistent -- he finished second in the qualification round in Sochi, then bumped all the way down to 11th after falls in finals -- but when he's on, he's on.
