Rider of the Year Awards

Rider of the Year Awards from Tribe Rider on Vimeo.

This year Tribe Riders produced the first annual Rider of the Year Awards. Anyone and everyone had the opportunity to video nominate a peer in a 9 different categories; Rider of the Year, Expedition of the Year, Photographer of the Year, Film of the Year, Best Trick, Best Line, Best Drop, Best Downriver Freestyle, and of course Best Carnage. Among the many stout entries, I was able to score second place in the Best Line category for my line over Second Tomata on the Rio Alseseca in Mexico last fall. As a nominee, judge, and viewer it was a pleasure to be a part of this year's Rider of the Year Awards, and I look forward to the fire from next years awards burning even hotter. I also want to send a shout out to Rush Sturges, Patrick Camblin, all the judges, and everyone else involved in making this year's Rider of the Year Awards happen. Cheers boys...
