Rider of the Year Entry: Best Drop

January 25, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

It is that time of year again.  This is the third year that the Rider of The Year has been held. For those not in the know, the Rider of The Year competition is an online competition designed to celebrate and showcase the best of whitewater kayaking.  Entries are sent in by participants from all over the world and go into various different categories.  These categories include Best Line, Best Drop, Best Trick, Film of the Year and more.  This year I had a few old clips from Mexico 2011, lying around so I decided to send one in.  After a little while (Due to the organising of the Whitewater Grand Prix) waiting the clip has finally made its way on to the Internet.   I entered my self running Twisted Pleasure, a 60ft drop with a tricky lead in on the Rio Jalacingo, Mexico.  The competition is decided voting from members of the AWP (Association of Whitewater Professionals) and will be decided in the near future (ish).   


More of the entry videos are being posted all the time so keep an eye on their website www.rideroftheyear.org, and look through all of the entries from this year and the last two years of Rider of the Year on their Vimeo Page   https://vimeo.com/rideroftheyear/videos
