Who are you

Accomplishments 4 times XGames gold medalist,world champion FIS 2009, AFP 2011 2 times DEW cup winner

How did you arrive into Freeskiing

I’ve always loved Freestyle skiing since i’m a little kid, it makes me happy. We can be innovative and create new tricks in the air, it’s never boring and that’s why i chose this sport

What is the secret to win so much

Passion and Determination,

Which victory give you more satisfaction

I think the first time i won the X Games in 2010

And your progression

Where you will see yourself in 5 years That’s a good question.. I will still be on my skis that’s for sure, my goal is to continue doing the things that others can’t do and try to stay the best.

Can u describe your style

it’s tough to talk about your own style… You should ask what other people think

How you can handle all the pressure

i get pretty stressed out when i’m not on the skis because i think too much and I feel guilty about not skiing but as soon as i’m on my skis i stop over thinking.

How much mental strength you need to compete at this level

I think it’s the biggest part of being an athlete. You can be the best rider in the world but if you don’t have the mental you have nothing.

When you have some days off skiing what are you doin’

i try to spend some time with my girlfriend and see my family

What is skiing for you

its just my life, skiing gives me everything i need to be happy in life

Sometimes isn’t competing annoying

Yes especially during bad weather, it’s so frustrating when you’re trying a new trick that you can’t do it because there is no speed or no visibility

Which are the best spots in the different continents

in Europe i really love La Plagne for the backcountry there are some really insane mountains out there, and in the US i like Breckenridge because of the perfect half pipe and the slope style is amazing

Kevin Rolland’s choice
Il Moro "T " I.D.

The choice of X-Games athletes Russ Henshaw, Nick Goepper, Devin Logan, McRae Williams, Kevin Rolland, Emma Dahlstrom etc… The IL Moro T Comp is a no holds barred, specialty ski boot that has been designed for today’s new-school rider. The IL Moro T Comp is built on Dalbello’s Krypton chassis and offers the full array of Dalbello’s technology: Cabrio design, Center Balanced “Rocker” Stance, Contour 4 and a very steezy sublimated graphic. Full length, shock absorbing “Landing Gear” footboard, ID Thermo Custom Fit Liners and a clever spring loaded clip that holds the buckle in place when opened to accommodate easy hikes back up the park or while building booters. The IL Moro T Comp is the real deal. Just like the Pro’s use.
