This section features some interesting facts on Ross Rebagliati. Keep in mind, though, that these facts are not necessarily accurate; just look at Ross' weight, for example; it fluctuates from 175lbs (80kg) to 185lbs (84kg), even though he's officially listed at 180lbs (82kg). But whatever......just sit back and enjoy the show. If you want more extensive biographies, be sure to read CNN/SI's Ross profile.

I prefer 2) because it's easier on the ears. Also, 2) is the way Ross himself pronounces it.
