OK people, beside the factors above... I consider Candide, as one of the best skiers of all times, hands down... but lets remember he has earned everything he's embarked upon and the challenges endured made him who he is today. Yet, when you get that power behind you to fund your dreams and make you as "extreme and exclusive" like T Rice it's a different world. Who can say who works harder for their shots... Andy P serving assholes is a whole lot more miserable and harder than flying around looking for wild life... two different worlds I know but we still live in it. I've always believed if we could put all our eggs in one basket with support, sponsors, money, belief anyone could be super pro. Just a thought.
