Who Is the Hottest Adventure Athlete?

I like to think that this space takes the high ground and wrestles with the deep philosophical issues of our time. But who am I kidding? We’ve asked you about farts, sex, and other impolite topics, so why should the superficiality of hotness trip us up? And apparently it’s a question many of you want answered — I’ve had no fewer than five contributors and three readers suggest this as a poll topic.

So, here we go.

You may select as many of these athletes as you like. We capped the list at 25 for each gender — if we made an egregious oversight, we’ll add the name to the selection options. Otherwise, just give them your love as a comment.


WIN SMITH HELMET JUST BY VOTING!

This week, one poll participant will receive Smith Optic’s Maze helmet. We’ll pick the winner via random number generator (and announce it here) — all you have to do to enter is vote and leave a comment so we have your email to contact you. Must have a U.S. or Canadian address. Contest ends Sunday, December 2, at midnight PST.

Congrats to Danny Nguyen, winner of that sweet helmet! Thanks for commenting, everyone!

    Great poll! Although I’m partial to surfers. I was happy to see both Malia and Kelly ranked high. Sharing on Twitter…

    Emily Batty … Beautiful AND rode the 2012 olympics mountain bike race with a broken collar bone from a practice ride earlier in the week. The course had some serious rock gardens, especially for an XC race too. Impressive.
