Describing Shaun Palmer as a sporting multi-talent is not quite on point; his career is phenomenal and without peer. The American made a name for himself on his snowboard, impressing with three disciplines all at the same time: downhill, slalom and halfpipe. He was an exceptional motocross racer for many years, and outclassed his competitors when he secured a medal in the 1996 Downhill World Cup. A mere 9 months after his first riding attempts, Shaun ranked fifth in the overall downhill standings.
