Thank you everyone who submitted this year! Winners will be announced at the FRA party on Saturday, October 15th.
I vote for kiki (Bruno) as Rookie with no hesitation, I saw him in action during the Represent Chartreuse France
and I saw a few month rider shredding as 2 years or even more. He learned so quickly and he his for my part the most polyvalent.
For the rider or the year my heart is balancing both are my favorites !
Both are a toss up for me especially the not so rook rookies I’d say between Alex and chris and rider of the year real toss up….. And no stand out?
That’s wierd it wasn’t up there last time I looked but MURGO fo Sho
Jordi for standout! Anarchy!
i vote jordan then murgo then scrub
Nice review. I am rellay on the fence about this guy. I like ghost rider, so thats why I sort of want him, but the toy isnt all that great, so I dont want it. Dammit .what to do. I wish alot of those spikes on him where painted silver more, then maybe, just maybe I would get him for sure.
