Adam Jones

What started as a fun hobby for Adam Jones has turned into a nine-to-five career that requires persistence, focus and dedication. If we were to show this photo to Jones and ask him if he enjoys throwing down these giant ruler backflips, chances are he'd answer with an abrupt "No!" But who can blame him? Risking life and limb day in and day out is one of the toughest jobs on earth ... but it sure does beat sitting at a desk. (Steve Densmore)
