RIDER OF THE YEAR 2015 – CONTENDERS PROFILES:
Bernat Pomerol – @bernatpomerol
Home: Barcelona, Spain
Sponsors: Gazpacho Boards, Pure Apparel, Rally Flip Cap, Dokke UK, Stalow Clothing
Big moves in 2015: 2015: Park World Champion 2015 in Luxembourg. That 360 transfer to backside 50-50 was sick… 3rd in Street and 5th in Bowl at Snake Attack 2015 in Germany. One of the streetboarders with most presence in social media; daily videos and pics in park or street. One of them, the 450 to backside boardslide (!) at the big rail at skate Agora park.
Eduard Wojcik – @eduardwojcik
Home: Hagen, Germany
Sponsors: Ositos Shop, UPFront Company, Coloud Headphones, Beltiez
Big moves in 2015: 7th in Park and also 7th in Miniramp at World Championships 2015 in Luxembourg. 2nd in Street and 3rd in Bowl at Snake Attack 2015 in Germany last weekend. Uncountable tours around Germany and never stops taking pics. He did not drop a video part this year because he is currently filming for his video part in the new Ositos video ‘Cancelation’. He dropped 1 hour at Rheinpark edit and a cool commercial for UpFront. Organizer of some events as SNAKE ATTACK 2015 in Germany. He also got his new sponsor Coloud Headphones early this year.
Toni Alvarez – @tonialvarezalsina
Sponsors: Gazpacho Boards, UPFront Company, British Knights, House of Marley, Spotsnapr
Big moves in 2015: Another great year for ROTY 2014. He has gotten some big sponsors (UPFront Company, House of Marley and Spotsnapr). He could not compete at Worlds 2015 due an injury but he completely killed it at King Cobra Tour 2015 and of course did some sick/tech stuff at Malagzapacho Tour 2015 and LDN Calling meeting in London. Creator and teacher of the Gazpacho School Barcelona and probably he’s the most visible streetboard face in social media and 2nd in number of followers in Instagram.
Ismael Calvo – @ismael_Calvo
Sponsors: Flop Spot, BK Shoes Chile, Shark Energy Drink
Big moves in 2015: Without doubt, one of the MVP’s of the King Cobra Tour, hard to forget that nosegrind on the kinkrail… He dropped his sick ‘Welcome summer 2015′ edit and now he’s filming for a street video part. He spent part of the year training at his private skate park, as you can see on Mission in Chile video by Addicted productions. He’s been organizing some meetings and events in Chile and he also did a tour around Argentina.
Sergi Nicolas – @serginicolas
Sponsors: ENNUI, Dimension Streetboards, British Knights, Wicked Bearings, Outdoor Tech, Turunflun Wheels, Horizon Watches, American Socks
Big moves in 2015: 2015 Miniramp World Champion and 2nd in Vert. Street champion at Snake Attack 2015. He dropped two video parts this year: His ENNUI video part BY ANY MEANS and ENCORE, an amazing recopilation part. Sick role at King Cobra Tour, also with the biggest nosebluntslide ever, ender of the video. Killing it at LDN Calling event and multiple tours around the World. And he also got a new big sponsors: Wicked Bearings.
Eric Brun – @ericbruncaudet
Sponsors: Turunflun Wheels, Thousand Feet, Flowfold
Big moves in 2015: For many people he was the King Cobra Tour MVP. That frontside nosegrind at the big rail in Walnut, California is one of the biggest things we’ve ever seen… 2nd in Park at World Cahmpionships 2015 in Luxembourg, great role at Malagazpacho Tour, new team rider of Turunflun Wheels and also representing Flowfold. And, of course, his style… Best style in the game?
