Riders’ Poll 14: Men’s Rider of the Year

There’s no bigger honor in snowboarding than getting recognized as the rider of the year. This year we had a stacked field of nominees, and anyone could have been the winner. Pat Moore had another amazing part, Bode Merrill proved yet again that he’s not human, and Nicolas Muller, well he’s just Nico and he’s insane. It all came down to their fellow pros though, and at the end of the day, it was Nicolas Muller who was crowned rider of the year. He’s amazing. Listen to his motivational acceptance speech above, and check out his winning Real Backcountry part below. And honestly, have you ever seen a double cork look that cool?
