When it came time to select a Female Rider of the Year we instantly found ourselves back at the debate that has gone on for the past five or size years. Amber or Melissa? Other lady shredders have had strong individual years during that time, but none have quite stood out and stayed at the top like the Queen of WSR and her best friend from Down Under. These two continue to not only push their riding, but to push the sport to more and more up and coming female riders through clinics, demos, contest interaction, and much, much more. They may just keep this title between them for the next five years. Check out some video clips of these two here.
