Rob Darden bucks the trick-heavy trends of high-level Park competition, combining killer style, solid confidence and a conscientious use of the entire course to consistently finish high in the rankings. The Park bronze medalist from XG 2008 qualified for the Final in 2010 but had to forfeit his position when his knee popped out in practice. He underwent double knee reconstruction surgery late in 2010 and has worked through a long recovery to make it back to XG in 2011, hopefully for a return to the podium.
