Gigi Ruf - Japan
Explosive execution and an undeniable eccentricity mark the riding of this Arlberg-born talent, not to mention prolific output. During the 2008 season, Rüf managed to film three video parts (Absinthe, Burton, and The Pirates) while many riders were hard-pressed to lay down one, in addition to scoring numerous magazine covers at publications worldwide. Rüf brings rare talent and originality to the Union Binding Family.
