A Slopestyle podium favorite at XG Aspen 2016, Christensen broke his left hand in practice. He toughed it out and didn't drop from the contest, opting instead to wear a brace. It did affect his performance, though, and he finished 9th. Went in for surgery immediately after X Games Aspen. This Olympic gold medalist (slopestyle, Sochi) earned his first XG medal, Slopestyle silver, at Aspen 2015. Known for creative rail lines and an ability to throw big doubles and triples in the opposite direction, Christensen is back and healthy in 2017.
