|Half a decade since the Redcar Rocket, Danny Hart, claimed the top step at the muddy steeps of Champery, he finally muscled it again to achieve his first career world cup victory. Even the likes of the mighty AG and the G.O.A.T. didn't have the minerals to keep the Englishman at bay at he now charges forward into second place for the overall. - Nathan Hughes|
|I was down, not out. Remember that anything is possible. - Martyn Ashton|
|Sam Hill only comes to races for one reason: to win. He's never been one to make up the numbers and when he announced last week that he was going to compete in a full EWS season next year, he was coming to win races. It turns out he didn't have to wait that long... - Matt Wragg|

Be great to see him tear up the EWS on flats!
The other riders have had comebacks, undoubtedly, but I don't really think there is any question who this award should go to as this scale of Martyn's achievements are just unparalleled.
and yes, far too soon
I've been here for years
I'm rocking my peers
Puttin' suckers in fear"
Danny Hart 2016 .
And he's up against a dude that broke his damned back and came back to ride downhill? It's almost like they're fixing this one so Martyn will definitely win. This list is ridiculous.
What about Miller... who has been destroyed physically over the last couple years and came back to ride well this year.
What about Paul Bas who wasn't supposed to walk but is now riding a bike again.
I can think of quite a few others... but a dude that has been consistently getting better and had a breakthrough is an insult to a list like this.
I can see giving it to Ashton.
What about Maranda Miller? Broken arm then 2 broken wrists... finally back. Didn't take the world by storm but she's finishing well and is being very competitive. I'd call that a come back.
Go Redcar Rocket!
Martyn Ashton is a major "I'm making orange juice with these lemons" tho. Maybe it's to hard to call
Rider of the year list... yes. Come back. Nope.
This list is stupid as hell.
