Justin Fronius won Mens Rookie of the Year at Riders Poll 15. Last year he got the ender in Videograss’ The Last Ones. That’s really heavy when you consider the lineup of Joe Sexton, Danimals, Jake OE, and everyone else in that video. Here’s his acceptance speech from the awards party and look out for cameos from DC team mates Devun Walsh and Iikka Backstrom who showed Fronius around the backcountry last year.
