Another member of the famous Skiing Cochrans, Ryan Cochran-Siegle's mother is 1972 Olympic slalom gold medalist Barbara Ann Cochran, which also means he's cousins with a handful of other former U.S. Ski Teamers, including Jimmy Cochran. But this Junior World Champion didn't make the Team because of his family legacy; he did it by skiing fast at every level. Good news: his elevator is just getting off the ground floor.

After winning gold in both downhill and combined at the 2012 Jr. Worlds, Cochran-Siegle's stock was rising as fast as he was skiing. The trend rolled right into the 2013 season with back-to-back World Cup top 25's to open the year in Lake Louise. He then backed it up with super combined points at the storied Lauberhorn in Wengen, Switzerland, which punched him a ticket to the World Championships.

It was in Schladming, Austria where he really showed his speed with a 15th in super G. It was also there where his season ended prematurely with a torn ACL and MCL while racing the downhill portion of the super combined.

FIRST TRACKS
With skiing in the family bloodline, it's pretty safe to say Cochran-Siegle got his start at the family ski area in Richmond, VT. But like any active kid, he was into all sorts of sports, including soccer and baseball, before he zeroed in on skiing after high school graduation. A solid 2010 season boosted him to the U.S. Development Team and he made good on the experience with a jump to the B Team the following winter.

OFF THE SNOW
Cochran-Siegle, his cousins (Jimmy Cochran, Robby Kelley, Tim Kelley, Jessica Kelley and Roger Brown) and other members of the Cochran clan spend a lot of time at the family ski area. But things just got a little sweeter with the grand opening of their sugar shack, where they have begun to make Cochran's Slopeside Syrup. Not only does the syrup business keep him busy when he’s home, it also helps pay the ski racing bills. Order yours at www.slopesidesyrup.com.
