King of the Road 2014: End of the Line

King of the Road Ends - Winners to be Announced at SOTY Awards

After two long weeks of cross-country hell-raising, spit-swapping, board-breaking insanity, the Element, Flip and Birdhouse KOTR teams wrapped it up, Mystery Guests in tow, in North Carolina.

King of the Road 2014: End of the Line

So who won? Unlike in previous years, nobody will know who took the title until AFTER all the episodes have aired (you're welcome, Internet complainers) - with the 2014 Champs announced December 13th, right before the 2014 Skater of the Year is crowned.

Webisodes start in November and will also be featured on our free Hell of a Year 2014 DVD in the February 2015 KOTR issue. Thanks to our title sponsor Vans, as well as Element, Flip, Birdhouse, Monster and all the shops and skaters who helped us along the way! Meanwhile, here's a sampling of the best of KOTR 2014 social media photos and videos (for anyone still on that Cricket.)
