Travis Rice could care less about a Shaun White

There's no argument that Shaun White is the best snowboarder in the world at the park and halfpipe. His runs are flawless, and he is by far the most inventive of any professional rider out there. Does this mean he's the best snowboarder? Maybe not.

All of White's accomplishments are indeed impressive. Just watching this February's Olympics shows that he is light years ahead of his main competition. However, all of the things that White does are in extremely controlled environments. The only variables he ever has to contend with are the dimensions of the perfectly manicured halfpipes and jumps he competes on.

Travis Rice, on the other hand... well the way he snowboards is a little different, now isn't it?
