I’m happy to announce that Cary Gray of Baltimore, MD, has won the 2013 Evolution of Balance Award!

Cary proposed a 1.5 year, 24,000+ km cross-country trip that starts in Baltimore, loops into Canada, then heads south to Tierra del Fuego, Argentina (the southernmost tip of South America).

He hopes to connect offroad tracks and dirt roads in every every single land-based country in North and South America, which means circling back up from the southern tip of South America into Brazil and the northern countries of the continent.

Cary’s EOB award will include CAN$1500, a KH36, and KH gloves and armour.

Sincere thanks go to the Hoover family for helping support the cash portion of the award, and to Unicycle.com who will sponsor shipping of KH gear to Cary. Thanks also to everyone who applied: it was a tough decision to choose from many strong applications from around the world.
