ATLANTICADE AWARDS and CONTEST WINNERS:
The Ben Richard Memorial Award
2016 Winner - Ian Henderson, Charlottetown, PEI
The Ben Richard Memorial Award is presented each year to an individual who has enjoyed many miles of open highway with the wind in their face. Ben Richard was a Moncton native who was an active rider until he was in his 90's. His passion and longevity for riding is thought to be unmatched in New Brunswick. Ben passed away a few years back but his treasured Harley Davidson is still on display each year at ATLANTICADE. We know his spirit for adventure and socializing with fellow bikers is present during the festival.
So if you know someone who has many years in the seat and many miles on the road please send us a nomination email with some details on why this individual is deserving of this, our most Prestigious Atlanticade Award. The winner will be chosen just prior to the event and presented at the Awards Breakfast. (Note: Nominee must be someone attending the event).

The Rino Fournier Memorial Award
2016 Longest Distance Rider - Male - Patrick Duplesis, Langdon, Alberta
The Rino Fournier Memorial Award is presented each year to the rider who travels the greatest distance to attend the event. Rino was a riding buddy of Ben's and together they put many highway miles behind them. Rino made several trips from his Moncton home to the west coast and was a regular visitor to Laconia. His grandson Matt Hicks, son of ATLANTICADE chairman Dale Hicks, was strapped on his grandfather's Harley before he could walk. Matt purchased his own ride in the summer of 2010 and shares the love of the open rode while remembering his grandfather who died of cancer a few years back.
