This year, for the first time ever – the Golden Crank Awards will be ONLINE ONLY! No more hassle of mailing in ballots, no more ballot stuffing and you must be an ABA member to vote. Also when you vote, your name will be put in a hat for a chance to win some cool BMX stuff.
Since 1992 BMXer magazine has asked YOU, the racers, to vote for your favorites in the following four categories:
- PRO of the YEAR
- ROOKIE PRO of the YEAR
- BIKE of the YEAR
- FACTORY TEAM of the YEAR
And in the past – plenty of REDLINE riders, from John Purse to Bubba Harris to Denzel Stein, have received the honor of hoisting up the illustrious Golden Crank trophy in November. A couple of times, we’ve even been voted TEAM of the YEAR. But most amazingly – is the sad fact that Redline has never received the award for BIKE of theYEAR. But with the new 2010 being the talk of the BMX circuit – we have a good feeling that THIS could be our year!
Once all the votes are cast they are then tallied up to see who the lucky winners are. The BMXer magazine Golden Crank awards will be awarded to the winners during the Friday Night Pro Spectacular at the Greatest Race on Earth, the ABA GRANDS in Tulsa, OK.
