As we began our decision making of the 2011 Alliance Rider of the Year, Reed Hansen was the first person everyone thought of. Not only do we think Reed is deserves this award, but many of his fellow riders believe so as well. Reed is an all around great guy, he shreds on the water and is the first person to lend a hand off the water. Reed is a true ambassador for the sport of wakeskating. Congrats to Reed Hansen, The 2011 Alliance Rider of The Year.
