Help EpicTV Select Their Adventurer Of The YearPosted on the 04 January 2013 by Kungfujedi
Many of the nominees are definitely names that you will be well known to readers of the Adventure Blog. You'll find climbers Alex Honnold and Kyle Dempster on the list, as well as Felix Baumgartner and Benedikt Böhm. Each of those men achieved some pretty outstanding things last year and certainly deserve some recognition. They're joined on the list by a number of others, including Steve Fisher and his team of paddlers who took on the Inga Rapids in the Congo, and Gary Connery who managed to make the first wingsuit landing without the use of a parachute.
Voting is open to the public through January 24 and we are all encouraged to vote for our favorite outdoor athlete once per day between now and then. After that, the person who received the most votes will not only be named the EpicTV Adventurer of the Year but they'll also be awarded €5000 (About $6500) towards their next project.
Vote early, vote often!
