Red Gerard is the talk of the Colorado Rocky Mountains.

At age 17 he won gold at the Winter Games in 2018 and now he has fine-tuned his routine to roar into Beijing next month.

Red is now 21 and says he's ready to take on the best snowboarders in the world. He's definitely one of them.

Red has been snowboarding his entire life, and has even built places to train on his family's farm in Silverthorne, Colorado.

Because of travel restrictions to China, Red's family, friends and the neighborhood will be at watch parties in the big barn on Red's property at his ranch.

Red is a proud member of Team Toyota. Toyota supports 29 U.S. Olympic and Paralympic athletes and 18 U.S. National Governing B Bodies and High Performance Management Organizations on their journeys to the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Beijing 2022 and beyond.
