EAME Rider of the Year

The Season is about to start and during off season the ECWC nominated and elected the EAME Rider of the year. 
This year's choice was a tough one - nominated were the most significant rider of the season 2008. From newcomers to established pro rider 14 were nominated by the council.
This years award goes to Frederic von Osten for the male category and Anna Laura Babänder for the female Athletes.
Anna Laura Brabander (GER) – 2008 World and EAME champion in Girls category, and best ranked among all women categories in EAME. She's very young and enthusiastic, often competing against older girls and taking it easy, very popular in community. Setting the standards for girls, safely lands a blind judge at age 14 – respect! 
Frederic von Osten (GER) – 2008 World champion in Boys category, 15 years of age, rides extraordinarily, has a number of various excellent tricks up the sleeve and some say Open Men are very happy Frederic rides against younger fellows. A crazy kid from Hamburg with a motto "no risk no fun", no wonder he had 2 big injuries this season.
