Darren Bouldin

"Besides having awesome bike skills, Darren never stops smiling. Having a good time is his No. 1 priority," says Eastern Bikes team manager Leigh Ramsdell. And Bouldin is quick to agree, but he's also capable of buckling down and hitting the books. Pursuing a major in geography focused on geospatial information, the 21-year-old has lived in Greenville for just over two and a half years. He chose a spot halfway between the Jaycee Skate Park and the campus, but is quick to thank Nyquist for "letting us ride the best skate park on Earth." (Photo by: Tyler Northrup)
