I don't get how just a fwhip won it, Pilgrim's trick is definitely more technical.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 23:39)
i don't get why contest aren't based more on style, flow and technicality, rather than seeing who can huck a double flip off a trick jump.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 2:56)
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:38)
if by more technical you mean has more letters and words to describe it, yes.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 9:26)
get mtb in the x games !!!
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:26)
I think the 6 days riding MTB might have swayed it a bit but that shouldn't really come into it
(Feb 12, 2012 at 18:43)
ya lets see some slope style for the mtb and bring back bmx dirt!!!!!!!!!
(Feb 13, 2012 at 23:10)
a flipwhip is not that easy tho ;P
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:43)
Come to the dark side of the force Kagy and ride a MTB
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:53)
He's been riding a mtb a whole 6 days and he wins a contest he should definetly keep on the bigger wheels
(Feb 11, 2012 at 23:07)
Apparently I missed something, but was this a best trick only contest? Or was it just best trick today and slope is tomorrow?
(Feb 11, 2012 at 23:18)
No slope event, just a big air best trick event, two lips, 45 and 75 i think
(Feb 12, 2012 at 0:15)
is he going to ride more mtb contests?
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:15)
Kagy come to mtb !!
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:06)
Then I'm surprised with all the big names that a flip-whip won...
(Feb 12, 2012 at 16:59)
kagy makes more on a bmx so hes probably not goin to stay with mtb
(Feb 12, 2012 at 17:03)
why would he ride mtb instead of bmx? he gets paid more and has won way more bmx events
(Feb 12, 2012 at 17:14)
copy me well ur at
(Feb 24, 2012 at 17:51)
its not all about money and you can ride both
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:07)
The funny thing is that in that interview he said he'd been riding his mountain bike for a total of six days!!
(Feb 11, 2012 at 21:46)
There's not much difference between jumping a BMX and a MTB, really. If you got him in a big mountain comp. then it'd get interesting... Join us Kagy!
(Feb 12, 2012 at 5:42)
Jumping on bmx and on mtb are two totally different worlds
(Feb 12, 2012 at 8:20)
Ah no, its really not... haha.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 10:54)
there both way fun, thats for sure.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:37)
You got that right
(Feb 11, 2012 at 23:19)
Is it just me, or does it seem like mountain bikers dont work hard enough...first Gwin comes in from moto with an insane work ethic and lays it down on the WC scene, then Kagy comes in and beats a bunch of pros with only 6 days on the bike. Tell me if im crazy but im starting to question the effort that alot of pros put into the sport
(Feb 12, 2012 at 0:16)
its called hes a well rounded rider theres mtb riders who can kill it on a bmx also
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:37)
mtn bikings younger than both sports, the scene hasn't had time to reach as high of a level as moto or bmx.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 7:33)
Yeah, these mountainbikers are all so lazy, if only they could be put through some sort of regulated training regime under your guidance BLIPDH...
(Feb 12, 2012 at 8:10)
I fairness to Kagy and mtb, Chad Kagy has been riding bikes for a long time. A very long time and is a well rounded rider inside the confines of bmx. From his days of killing street contests to a seasoned vert rider, the dude knows how to handle a bike. His skills easily transfer to riding a bigger wheeled bike. Because thats all it really is, and not quite the same feat as Gwin coming in and winning WC. Gwin did that on a work ethic that is not quite the norm for DH, and a healthy dose of raw talent. Give credit where credit is due......and that is to all these guys who ride bikes for a living
(Feb 12, 2012 at 8:15)
yeah, I was thinking more of Gwins feats but this just post just reminded me of it and i felt like i had to say something relevant.
...Im not denying that alot of DH pros put a ton of time and effort into it. Gee is one of the most hard working guys out there. But from what i hear and see he also parties alot (which isnt a bad thing
), and Gwin doesn't, so that might be something that gives Gwin a slight advantage
(Feb 12, 2012 at 9:41)
Fair enough man, you have a very good point, but I'm expecting/ hoping optimistically that Gee will come back and smash it this year, his off-season appears to be going pretty well. I think all of the top guys have learnt from the likes of Gwin in the same way that everyone got a slap around the face when Sam Hill arrived on the scene a few years back. You never know, even Brendawg might have become a pedaller.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:50)
yeah itd be awesome to see everyone come back at the top of their game
(Mar 13, 2012 at 3:56)
Didn't think there was much wrong with Brendawg's pedalling before he snapped his ACL, and it must be pretty tough pedalling without one of those! Sounds like it's almost fully healed now, be interesting to see what he can achieve this year.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 21:01)
haha. I saw that kagy would be riding in this, and i remember thinking to myself, "hmmm… he's gonna destroy"
(Feb 12, 2012 at 7:48)
Yooo Chad Kagy showing these 20" fools what time it is. Having fun on a bike regardless of wheel size. Alot of 20" peeps i know hate on big bikes for diff reasons and stay close minded. Real riders do it on any bike, on snow, concrete, dirt, wood, anyting.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 14:15)
Kagy has amazing bike control!!! I know a lad who started on a bmx, went into trials, and now is a semi pro superbike rider!! Give him a bmx now n he can still pull of flips and shred the local parks! Then jump on his trials n pull huge taps n ups!!! Mental!!! Fair play to him at least knowone slating him, i bet in all the bmx mags they slagging him off!!! Lol
(Feb 14, 2012 at 16:24)
For you who don't know x games is expanding. The wanna make another event they are down to 10 cities and whistler is on the list. I don't know it that would be for a winter x Or summer x. But it would be hard to ingnore the mtb culture in whistler and not add a mtb event
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:40)
Haha just finished watching the interview video and Kagy's part, go back to the home page and this is up.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 21:45)
Not too surprised on kagy taking the win! He kills the mega ramp on a 20". It's only going to be easier for HIM on a 26"
Congrats kagy! South bay local! Pow!
(Feb 11, 2012 at 22:23)
I think Mike should have won, he front flipped a 75 foot gap...
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:52)
Wow! 10 days on a mtb and he killed it!!
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:06)
...hes HAD the bike for 10 days...hes been RIDING it for 6 days. ohhhh man
(Feb 12, 2012 at 8:00)
How many other riders can do a flip whip?!
Come on Kagy just did a trick that tenth of Mtb riders do... I did it at the good time
(Feb 12, 2012 at 0:22)
dirt jumping and slope style are really more bmx than mountain biking anyways.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:23)
Paul Bass did the same thing in 04. A bmxer starts rididng mtb and wins crankworx. I enjoy riding my mtb but, bmx runs this trick style of riding.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 11:55)
paul bass showed up to crankworx on a bmx but they wouldnt let him ride so he hoped on a mtb and killed it.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:23)
Hahahah I saw this title and was like, when did katy start riding a mtb......6 days ago huh.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 0:29)
Just another slap to the face, to show you how lame / easy it is to "pro" mtb rider. Stoked for kagy and mike tho, grats
(Feb 12, 2012 at 1:06)
Hahaha zinger chad kagy has been riding mega ramp for years, he would obviously do well being on a bigger bike.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 2:15)
the question is how many MTB guys could jump on a 20" bike and win a best trick BMX competition?
(Feb 12, 2012 at 2:42)
How many bmxrs could hop on a mtb and win rampage?
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:27)
How many slopestyle riders could hop on a mtb and win rampage? ha ha ha ha
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:42)
probably a few
(Feb 12, 2012 at 4:52)
home-team: none, because mtb is always gonna be far far behing bmx and copy everything from it.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 5:11)
n3lson: inside joke between Paul and I.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 15:18)
i could win rampage.... shits for noobz yo
(Feb 12, 2012 at 19:19)
of course you could, no doubt in my mind
(Mar 13, 2012 at 4:00)
MTB copies BMX? That's a new one on me. Don't see too many BMXs on my local trails.
(Feb 12, 2012 at 0:03)
Both my co-workers called this one! Chad Kagy is bad ass on the BMX, so of course he kills it on a Mountain B
(Feb 12, 2012 at 1:16)
chad kagy, can he flairwhip a vert ramp on a 26 incher?
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:03)
wow, 6 days on a mtb, and he wins best trick!!! wtff
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:42)
A bike is a bike I guess? wow.
(Feb 13, 2012 at 18:57)
ya i guess so lol. very sersatile rider though.
(Feb 13, 2012 at 18:58)
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:39)
OMFG!!! That is so rad, Kagy FTW!!!
(Feb 11, 2012 at 22:21)

(Feb 11, 2012 at 22:57)
Paul bass I think
(Feb 11, 2012 at 22:27)

(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:05)

(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:48)

(Feb 12, 2012 at 10:18)
(Feb 12, 2012 at 3:03)
(Feb 12, 2012 at 10:29)
i only knew two of them
(Feb 11, 2012 at 23:30)
Kurt Sorge is very good rider, he must be first.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:40)
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:40)
Need a video!
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:40)

(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:58)
Below threshold threads are hidden
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:46)
WOW!! New Anthony Meserre??
(Feb 11, 2012 at 19:59)
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:02)
Yeah cuz Kagy hasn't been around for that long at all, Come on man, Kagy is a BMX legend
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:17)
6 days on a MTB anthony rode bmx before... mtb
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:44)
So has almost 90% of slope riders... Mike mo did to...
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:40)
Just a testament to show what a joke slope style is.
(Feb 11, 2012 at 20:48)
No it just shows how talented some people are. He rides BMX for a career...or am I sensing some sarcasm in this comment..
(Feb 11, 2012 at 21:49)
Kagy is an insanely talented rider so to say that because he won is a testament to how much of a joke slopestyle is would be like saying how big a joke the Leadville 100 is because Lance Armstrong came in and won it.
