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 aswel as doing some announcing and a small bit of T.V. Paul is also back riding and aiming to get back to X-Games where it all began. Last year he was unfortnuate enough to suffer from an injury weeks before Winter X which put him on the sidelines for the rest of winter. He will be back racing in the adaptive field at Winter X this year and hopefully can get back up there on the box where he belongs!
