  1. So weird than a big group of readers said that “Battle in the Rockies video contest for free flight” is the innovation of the Year, as video contest for free flights appeared before in Flatland with Ground Tactics in… 2010

    I mean, absolutly no disrespect for the organisers of BITR coz that contest seemed of course one of a badass contest and that initiative to pay flight tickets is still very great, huge respect for the organisers to made that happen. Like everyone, I hope something like this could happen at each contest.

  2. DECO is the hot shit right now, but Heresy is the REAL shit! Total underground creep status. If you don’t know, now you know! Much love to DECO though, bringing the gospel to the masses. Most cats ain’t ready for that Heresy!

  3. @lona, it should be the most insane rider of the year award. That way we can poke fun at the crazies directly. I love messing with people who have mental problems.

  4. @r Effraim wouldn’t have written it if people didn’t say it. I can imagine lots of people saying It because there has been very little obvious innovation this year. Standing on the stem was prevalent in 2013. Capped end pegs started a long time ago etc. I left that vote blank because I struggled.
