The Kelly McGarry Spirit Award - Red Bull Rampage 2016
I feel like in today's world, where we are starting to see and understand the devastating and traumatic effects of CTE (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chronic_traumatic_encephalopathy) in all action sports, handing this award to someone who, by all rights, probably shouldn't have gone up for his last run is proof of a failure of RedBull as event organizer. I understand that Connor is tough and wants to push and deliver the best show possible, but in the end that's all this is...a show. These athletes are risking their lives every time they get on their bike on a course like this, and they accept that risk. But after Connor's "third or fourth massive crash of the week", I think RedBull should have had the courage to step in and keep him off the start line. Just watch his last run and tell me he wasn't at least slightly concussed - that last run should not have been allowed to happen. His determination, drive, and spirit should definitely be celebrated, but at some point the event coordinator needs to have the athlete's well-being as a priority. I hope Connor is okay, and I'm sure he will tell you he's fine today, but who knows what will happen 20 years from now. I'm sure Dave Mirra would have said he was fine too... I just hope RedBull doesn't end up killing someone in the name of selling more energy drinks...
