Lance Pekus may be the best athlete you’ve never heard of.

But the strapping, young Idaho cowboy, who runs cattle at his father-in-law’s ranch in Salmon and works seasonally for the U.S. Forest Service, is making a name for himself on the TV sports competition “American Ninja Warrior.”

Now in his sixth season on the show, Pekus is known as the “Cowboy Ninja.” His sexy signature look highlights his brawny physique: Shirtless, jeans and black cowboy hat. His Twitter bio says he’s “powered by beef.”

The TV competition is a spinoff of the Japanese show Sasuke. Competitors try to get through a series of complex obstacles with names like Salmon Ladder and Warped Wall that require tremendous strength, agility, balance and timing.
