Tucker Hibbert’s record-breaking snocross season just earned him an ESPY (Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly) Award nomination in the Best Male Action Sports Athlete category. It’s Hibbert’s third nomination and if he wins, he’ll become the first snowmobiler in history to take home this prestigious award.
This past winter, Hibbert won 13 of the 17 ISOC Pro Open final events, recorded his 100th Pro National win with a jaw-dropping come-from-behind win in Deadwood, SD, and won a record-breaking eighth consecutive X Games gold medal.
Alongside Hibbert, Supercross champion Ryan Dungey, skateboarder Nyjah Huston, snowboarder Mark McMorris and freestyle motocross athlete Josh Sheehan were selected by a panel of judges for their standout performances in action sports.
Great athletes all, but none of them has been at the top of their sport for 15 years like Tucker.
Online voting will determine the winner.
One vote per web device allowed now through Wed. July 15.
“With all the talented action sports athletes around the world, it’s a huge honor to be nominated but I’d really like to take home the ESPY this year. A snowmobiler has never won this award so it’d be a big win for the sport. I know snowmobilers are a passionate group of people so hopefully they’ll all put in their vote!”
The 2015 ESPYS Awards show will be broadcast live on ABC Wednesday, July 15 at 8 p.m. ET.
If Tucker wins the ESPY, I will shave my head within a couple days of the announcement. Maybe Tucker himself will do the honors.
