In the July 2020 issue, Colorado Rider News brought back the BEST of the BEST contest.  We are publishing the 3 top semi-finalists in each category here and will have a 2nd round of voting that will go until August 25th.

We have a 200% increase in voting this year and CRN was really surprised by some of the results in each category.

Here is how the semi-finalist voting round will work.  Each top three contenders will receive voting pads so that customers can manually place their vote for the BEST of the BEST.  You will still be able to vote online and thru our Facebook page.  On August 25th, we will gather all the votes, and total up the winners. Awards will be presented on September 5th at the Look Twice Save a Life Ride at Dirty Dogs Roadhouse in Golden.
