The 5th Annual Riders’ Poll Awards

Held September 5, 2003 in downtown San Diego at the infamous Wonderbread factory—aka the hot box. TWS freestyled it this year with a new venue in a new town (San Diego) during a new tradeshow, ASR. The ‘too hot in the city’ night left attendees no choice but to commence the beer bonging and liquor thievery. It was a loose night. Shaun White took no part in the debauchery and won his first Rider Of The Year title at the ripe old age of 17.
