Torah Bright Wins Women’s Rider Of The Year

February 9th, 2011

The Fillmore Auditorium in downtown Denver was swarming with all shred heads alike on Friday night for the 12th Annual Transworld Riders Poll Awards. With the booze flowing, Travis Rice got the awards got under way – the all-around vibe being really stoked and a little buzzed.

Jess Kimura got the recognition she deserves and claimed Women’s Best Video Part of the Year for her opener in Peep Show’s “Let’s Make Better Mistakes Tomorrow” and also won Reader’s Choice (alongside Torstein Horgmo who happened to stomp the first triple cork ever in the Winter X 15 Big Air event). Jess rips and it was awesome to see all of her hard work pay off with her peers giving her props. Burton rider and Canadian Mark Sollors picked up Rookie of the Year with his shred talent crossing the border into the States. Standout of the Year was awarded to Mr. Mikey Leblanc for his stairset gap to flat that closed outVideograss‘ video “Bon Voyage” – if you haven’t seen this gnarly situation yet watch it HERE. Burly. He had some fierce competition in this category as he was up against Torstein and Danny Davis.

Video of the Year went to Transworld’s “In Color” for its variety of riding, killer soundtrack and list of talent. Joe Carlino, Gary Milton, and Hayden Rensch put this baby together and did a damn good job.

Aussie and Olympian Torah Bright won the respect and hearts of the snow industry and scored Women’s Rider of the Year. Rightfully so, this girl owns the halfpipe and is pushing women’s snowboarding every time she straps in. We expect big things (double type things) from this lady.

John Jackson made a major sweep as well by being named Rider of the Year with the Best Video Part (Forum’s F’ It). This is the second year in a row that he’s claimed both those titles. Don’t act like you’re not impressed – this guy is ridiculous and continues to mash the backcountry.

One of the many highlights of the evening was the Legend award which was given to Baker local Mike Ranquet who recently has been featured on Vice Magazine’s web series, “Powder and Rails” which has touched on his many accomplishments. Coming from the skate world, Mike single handedly brought skate style into snowboarding and made sure everyone knew this at the awards. After a lengthy ramble about skate style and some…other things, he concluded his rant with a tiny “Skiing is f-cking gay, seriously” and then was pulled off the stage by the eye candy in a tight dress. Good times.

Another Rider’s Poll in the books, everyone survived (we think) and continued to party the night away at the Nike 6.0 Shoe Shine/Snowboard Mag party at the Summit Music Hall. Congrats to all the winners for making this sport we all love that much better. Peace out Denver, it’s been real.
