 Love how Cam McCaul ran into the archway to "keep things interesting" as he put it. Glad to see him up there on the podium, he deserves it.

 aha love how he ran in to the video tower his other run lol
  • + 35
 I think he refused to go through the RedBull arch because he's a Rockstar athlete.

 The flip onto the cabin was so rad, and to finish it off with a 3 off the top was amazing. He popped and ripped the tire on the landing and held it together. Great run!

 the flip was butter. His front flip was probably the most fluid looking ones i have seen yet.
  • + 3
 Yeah the front flip was nuts , alot of people look awkward when they do it , he made it look easy.
  • + 4
 Wow, I didn't even notice he blew his tire. That makes that landing even more impressive.

 What a run! Would've liked to see his second run if martin would've landed the 3 double whip! PROPS for f-flip!
  • + 1
 That is one of the smoothest front-flips I've ever seen...right down to the landing/run-out.

 kinda bummed that semenuk didnt even get to the finals ...BUT it will make the fight for the fmb world title more interesting to watch making semenuk,pilgrem,soderstrom work for it....btw what happened to sam...thot he was goin 2 ride here???
  • + 1
 My guess is that when he fell on his flip on the 60 footer he dragged his hands a long way on the dirt and couldn't ride anymore..
  • + 4
 Sam did ride at Joyride, but he crashed in his first run trying to flip the 60footer and then pulled out afterwards. And yes, can't wait to see who takes the FMB Overall!
  • + 1
 He did ride but hurt himself first run down
  • + 1
 Sam, according to his facebook page, broke his bike on the flip attempt; he's not injured
  • + 3
 Yeh it was his bike that broke not him he seems to be cursed when it comes to crankworks. But props to Genon his run was crazy made even crazier by the wind.

 nice genon! first is good to see that rigid bike wins that sick slopestyle course, it would be even better if he tried the 60feet. plus he is euro rider, yeh.
  • + 3
 I hear ya Gordon. It's forsure gonna make for an epic battle at rampage. I still coudn't help but feel horrible for brandon when I saw him wreck both times.

 Even after watching it 3 times that run gives me shivers. So sick

 I wonder if it's even sunk in for Genon...quite an accomplishment to say the least. Definitely the most solid run from top-to-bottom on the day - and that front-flip...soooooo smooooooooth!!

 never knew he blew his tire
  • + 1
 What a place to blow the tire, on the last landing, unless he did the filp and 360 with a flat... then there is a whole new respect. Awesome run!

 I dont know if Semenuk could of topped this run had he not crashed both runs. If he did they would of probably been close to a tie.
  • - 4
 The thing with semenuk is that all the tricks that genon put down. Semenuk would've added some little variations to them.
