Vote Tucker Hibbert for a 2014 ESPY!


(6/27/2014)

Vote for Tucker Hibbert to win a 2014 ESPY

On Tuesday, Tucker Hibbert was nominated for an ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) Award.

This is a huge deal, and not just for the Team Monster/Arctic Cat snocross superstar. By virtue of the massive exposure this brings (especially if he wins) it's huge for snowmobile racing and even the sport of snowmobiling. The bigger the sport gets, the better.

Hibbert was nominated for the Best Male Action Sports Athlete category. And best of all, YOU can affect the outcome:

Simply CLICK HERE to go to the ESPN Link to vote for Hibbert. It's free and takes less than 6.8 seconds.

Because I know the guy and I can count on him buying me a Monster every time we're at a gas station together, I voted for him from every computer in my house. I'm not suggesting that everyone do this.

Wait... never mind, that's exactly what I'm suggesting.

Below is the official press release.

 

Tucker Hibbert Nominated for 2014 ESPY Award

The world’s leading snowmobile snocross racer, Tucker Hibbert, received his second ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) Award nomination in the Best Male Action Sports Athlete category. Hibbert hopes to become the first snowmobiler in history to win the prestigious award.

In his 14th year as a pro, he recorded his most successful season-to-date. In January, he eclipsed legend Blair Morgan’s long-standing snocross pro national win record to become the most-winning racer in the sport. Later that month, he became the first athlete in history to win seven consecutive gold medals at X Games Aspen. He now holds 95 pro national victories, two World Championships, eight National Championships and 12 X Games medals.

Alongside Hibbert, surfer Grant Baker, skateboarder Nyjah Huston, Supercross champion Ryan Villopoto and Olympic free skier David Wise were selected by a panel of judges for their standout performances in the action sports category. Through online and mobile voting, fans will decide who will take home the ESPY award. The winner will be announced live on ESPN Wednesday, July 16.


Tucker Hibbert - #68 Monster Energy/Arctic Cat:

“I didn’t see this coming but couldn’t be more excited. To step back and think about how many talented action sports athletes there are worldwide, then realize that you’re one of five selected for this award is incredible. When I was first nominated in 2011, I didn’t fully understand the scope of the honor. Now, I get it. It’d be a huge honor to be the first snowmobile athlete to win an ESPY. My fans already stepped up and voted me 2014 ISOC Fan Favorite Rider. Now, I hope they can help me take home the ESPY!”

I don't think the average sports fan realizes what a special talent Tucker is, a once in a generation type athlete. Skate and snowboarders are a dime a dozen.

Everyone get over there and vote for Tucker. He is the best there is and he deserves this more than anyone else.

Excellent to hear the news about the bananas, but I'd trade mine for anetohr beer. Last year I travelled all the way over from Warwickshire for the race. This time, I'm flying in from Bangkok. Do I win a prize? (I won't get one for my running). http://ublbcw.com [url=http://bmnqbluz.com]bmnqbluz[/url] [link=http://rizrgh.com]rizrgh[/link]
