I know from my own experience it’s a tough road to making it to be a pro rider competing as a privateer and especially even more in a season when the world is faced with a global pandemic, for a lot of these guys and girls every little bit makes a big difference.
Last year I didn't manage to get this award going due to the uncertainty of the race season but this year its back and the goal is support those who need it most and hopefully offer them bigger awards than that of the actual races themselves.
The previous award winners are,
2019 DH WC Privateer Award winners
Leogang: Johannes Von Klebelsburg
Val Di Sole: Tuhuto Ariki Pene
Lenzerheide: Camile Balanche
MSA World Champs: Hugo Langevin
Snowshoe: Luke Meier-Smith
2019 EWS Privateer Award winners
Canazei: Louis Jeandel
Les Orres: Raphaela Richter
Northstar: Matt Stuttard
Zermatt: Edgar Carballo
Finale Ligure Trophy of Nations: Bart De Vocht
Some of these riders went on the achieve amazing results and also became professional riders now living out their dreams and one is in fact a current DH World Champion too.
So let's get behind those that need the support, I will be presenting the award at each of the World Cup or EWS events that I am at this season.
All donations go in to the draw to win a GT Bicycles frame of their choice (dependant on availability) presented on WynTV at the end of the season.
