Jill Kintner has accomplished more on two wheels than the rest of us have been able to muster on our own two feet. After a successful professional BMX career, culminating in the NBL National Title when she was just 20 years old, she moved into the emerging sport of mountain bike four-cross (4X).
She quickly dominated the discipline, scoring three consecutive world championship titles and countless other accolades. Her first passion came calling once again when BMX racing was added to the line-up at the 2008 Olympics in Beijing, and Jill returned to her roots to score the coveted spot on the US Olympic team, bringing home a bronze medal.
She returned to 4X the following year and switched to downhill in 2010, earning an unprecedented run of three distinctly different US National titles in consecutive years: BMX in ’08, 4X in ’09 and downhill in ’10.
Jill is now focused on mountain bike downhill and slalom racing. She has well and truly proven her pedigree yet again with an impressive array of national titles, consecutive wins at the likes of Sea Otter Classic, and a victory at the Northwest Cup.Read more
