A highly competitive racer until he switched to Team Summit’s big mountain program this season, Rodney can’t seem to shake his background. “Big George will simply take the entire venue,” Jim Jack says about Rodney’s style in competition.     “He skis really fast and technically solid, and takes huge airs,” says Van Nuys. “But the best thing is that he’s always having fun no matter what —he doesn’t care if he crashes.”     Rodney, who attends Winter School in Salt Lake City, will be graduating in the fall and heading back to Summit to continue to train for the adult tour and compete on that next year. He’s just picked up Smith and SkullCandy as sponsors, and after throwing a 60-foot back flip in the JWT event at Snowbird, he’ll be someone to watch on next year’s FWT.
