With such accomplished teammates as Mark McMorris and Sébastien Toutant, it would be understandable if Maxence Parrot slipped under the radar. But in 2013 he made his mark on the snowboard slopestyle world and announced himself as a medal contender for the event’s Olympic debut at Sochi 2014, where he finished fifth.
Parrot was a Winter X Games rookie in 2013 when he won silver at Aspen behind McMorris. He also made a little history, performing the first-ever backside triple cork in slopestyle history. He has competed in just three FIS World Cup slopestyle events, but reached the podium in two of them, winning bronze at Stoneham in February 2012 and silver at Sierra Nevada in March 2013.
