MFR and Eiki Win Transworld's Readers' Choice Awards!

Marie-France and Eiki both take Transworld’s Reader’s Choice Awards

It was a big night for Rome pro’s Marie-France Roy and Eiki Helgason as they were both awarded one of snowboarding’s top honors on Friday night in Denver at the Transworld Snowboarding Rider’s Poll Awards. Voted on by the readers, the men’s reader’s choice award went to our Icelandic killer Eiki Helgason for two stellar video parts in People’s “Nice Try” and Factor Films’ “They Came From” as well as a standout performance at the first annual TWS Team Shoot Out. The women’s reader’s choice award went to Marie-France Roy for continuing to push women’s snowboarding with a part in Absinthe’s instant classic “Neverland”, as well as a part in the TWS Team Shootout video. Marie’s award this year marked her sixth Transworld Rider’s poll award…..Awesome! In attendance at the awards was a big crew from Rome which included company owners, reps, Rome in-house, friends, and even Bjorn who presented an award. A great time was had by all.

Congratulations to Marie and Eiki from everyone at the Rome SDS, and thanks to everyone who voted for them.
