We decided to do something a little different this year, and add a new category for Rider Awards. Rookie and Rider of the year just weren’t covering it enough, so we’ve added another category, Standout of the Year. A Standout is someone who’s definitely not a rookie, not a team member, but a ripper nonetheless. Someone who we’ve found ourselves talking about more than once and whose riding has team potential written all over it.
Without further ado – your 2009 FRA nominees:
Rookie of the Year 09
Riders who have come up on the scene in the past year/ year and a half
- Tyler Murgo
- Mike DePhillips
- Richie Verost
Standout of the Year 09
Riders who have been Freebording for a while, but are killing it more than ever this year
- Corey Lucero
- Nico Gaillard
Rider of the Year 09
Team riders from 2009
- Flo Bonin
- Bob Glashan
- Mike Hoppe
- Roberto Lopez
- Justin Oliver
- Martin Svidernoch
