Niko Johann, 26, is making his rookie appearance at X Games Aspen 2016. A mountain biking accident in 2005 left Johann paralyzed from the waist down, but his love for extreme sports didn't keep him off the slopes for long. The German native discovered sit-skiing in 2011 after watching a video of Josh Dueck's back flip. He raced in several IPCAS competitions in 2014, but doesn't consider himself a "FIS skier."
