Jeremy COTA
While American Jeremy Cota's competition history may not jump out at a casual researcher as spectacular - seven career podiums, no wins - when one looks at his consistency throughout his World Cup career it becomes clear why he was ranked 4th overall on the World Cup freestyle circuit in 2011-12. In the last three seasons, Cota has only finished outside of the top-10 four times, improving steadily until last year when he bagged four podiums - all of them 2nd-place finishes. With his obvious talent and laid-back, new-school-influenced style, expect to see Mr. Cota finally taking a place at the top of the podium in the near future
