Teton Gravity Research Top 21 Moments (3): How Jeremy Jones went from Olympic Hopeful to AK Legend

2016 marks Teton Gravity Research 21st birthday. To celebrate TGR's 21st and the Word Premiere of the new film Tight Loose Teton bring us TGR's Top 21 Moments. 21 days prior to the world premiere on September 17 TGR will launch a video a day highlighting the characters and moments that make TGR what it is today!

In case you didn't know this already, Jeremy Jones started out as a little racer kid with high hopes for one day making it to the Olympics. When his older brothers, Todd and Steve, bought cameras and started to film, Jeremy was naturally their primary subject.
They convinced Jeremy he needed to go check out Alaska. Jeremy was like 'sure, why not' and proceeded to go, and immediately tick off some of the most classic lines at the time. Classic Jer.
We know if would have happened for him no matter what, but those AK lines were a pivot point in Jeremy's career.

 

Teton Gravity Research (TGR) is an extreme sports media company based in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.The company was founded in 1996 by brothers Steve and Todd Jones, as well as friends Dirk Collins and Corey Gavitt. The group launched the company to create products that came from the perspective of athletes, showcased youth culture, and fostered the growth of high-risk action sports.
