A four-time overall World Cup champ (2005-2006, 2008-2009) and two-time World Champion (2005 and 2007), Kraus has competed at WX eight times but has yet to collect a medal. With one of the most explosive starts in the business, he's a podium contender every time he steps in the gate. A mechanical engineer by trade, Kraus likes to spend time with his kids, Lucia, age 4, and Tomas (17 months), when he's off the hill.
