Paul Thacker has always been noted as one of the gnarliest dudes to ride a snowmobile, setting many world record distance jumps and also competing in freestyle snowmobile at the X-Games. In 2010 while training for winter X Paul and friend Justin Hoyer were riding a simple practice jump when Paul suffered a spinal injury that rendored him a paraplegic. Since that day Paul has done anything but slow down. He is constantly travelling doing ambassador duties for many companies such as Monster Energy and their give back program, Ekso Bionics as well as some announcing/TV commentating for ESPN and CBS Sports. Paul is back competing at Winter X games and is hoping to defend his silver medal finish from this past season.
