Sport: Snowboard Cross
Driven and determined this 27 year-old started snowboard in 2008, nailed the national championship in 2010 and a second at the 2011 winter X Games. Off-season Kevin Hill gets a thrill from cliff jumping, downhill mountain biking, surfing and wakeboarding. But some say his competition experience, solid start and penchant for jumping comes from off-season BMX racing. Whatever, his December 2013 World Cup bronze in Austria has him well on the way to becoming a Lord of the Rings.
