The results are FINAL!

Congratulations to each of you who submitted your stories to my BROL thread wrapping up the 2008 riding year. As noted by several posters, your stories are inspirational. So much so, that I asked readers to vote for the story they found most inspirational.

Well, the votes and in and the poll is closed. We now give Special Congratulation to the top three vote recipients: [full chart]

  1. Bud Bent [39.53%]
  2. Squamish ed [32.56%]
  3. Trsnrtr [9.3%]

Special THANKS to Bryan Ball, ‘BentRider Managing Editor, and ‘BentRiders Online [BROL] for supporting my efforts with this endeavor.  Bryan has agreed to the following gifts for the top three vote recipients:

  1. First Place – Bud Bent – a ‘BentRider Jersey
  2. Second Place – Squamish ed – a 1-year ‘BentRider Member Status
  3. Third Place – Trsnrtr – a ‘BentRider Water Bottle

Again, we are all winners to have the opportunity to read your stories [all 18 of them]. Of significance is the fact that you wrote your stories with no knowledge of recognition or reward for sharing your ’08 riding experiences. I thank you for submitting your stories and I thank those who continue to share their riding experiences in my original BROL thread. I also give special thanks to those of you who voted, and thereby gave us the opportunity to honor our fellow riders for their stories and the inspiration they bring.

When times are hard come back to this thread for a motivational charge.

THANKS to all!

Jim Artis
