Jonathan Cheever, Snowboarder X Qualifying

Cheever is a working man's man. A licensed journeyman plumber by night and pro rider by day, the 24-year-old pride of Saugus, Mass., is not afraid to point it straight down the gut of a Snowboarder X course that presents challenges unique even to a four-time Winter X competitor like Cheever. Another thing that would be unique for him? A Winter X medal. (Mark Kohlman/ESPN Action Sports)
