Markku Koski was the first to attempt a 1440 in competition (U.S. Open 2002). And although he didn't land it cleanly, he took 2nd place and began to make waves in the U.S. He finished 8th in the halfpipe at the 2002 Olympics and took home a bronze from his first WX in 2003. Markku, an all-around rider with slopestyle and big air skills, is known for his classic style and effortless spins.
