The whole weekend was about wind and sand, forcing schedule changes and a shortened course for the finals.

(May 12, 2013 at 1:45)
Awesome that he's throwing big tricks and taking risks though?

Running scared to film some video segments.
Pilgrim smashes it yet again, they do definitely deserve more money.
Opposite trick all you want, or just throw banging runs together like Pilgrim!!! Ledge.

Opposte tricks might be technical but personally a big 7 then a 3 downside whip is way more interesting to watch than a flip whip then an oppo flip whip. Well deserved win in my opinion.

multiple user comments "Semenuk's running away" "Semenuk is scared"
Anyone remember the interview where he answered with "I don't fear anything" (or something like that) ?
If he is putting his all into his film segments then when they are realised their are going to be allot of "I was with him all the way" comments replacing the "scared ones"
(May 12, 2013 at 9:17)
Yeah what he said!
(May 12, 2013 at 11:23)
How many times has Pilgrim won the FMB overall ? Hmmmm............. 0 !!
(May 12, 2013 at 0:50)
As long as Sam keeps throwing 720's into his runs I don't see people beating him.
(May 12, 2013 at 14:41)
and it was on first jump, not even last
(May 11, 2013 at 21:16)
bigger purse and better tricks at ranchstyle. Just saying
(May 11, 2013 at 22:52)
(May 11, 2013 at 18:04)
Wow, just a staggering purse...
(May 12, 2013 at 15:59)

How do you get a bike stuck to you?
(May 11, 2013 at 18:35)
It's actually easier than you might think. It looks like his shirt was stuck between the wheel and seat
(May 11, 2013 at 19:00)
ok mortifiedpenguin cleared it up for me too
(May 12, 2013 at 21:19)
I still don't know which one of Sam Pilgrim's runs I liked better, in my opinion both equally badass
(May 11, 2013 at 20:38)
looks like monster energy is making a comeback
(May 11, 2013 at 18:29)
Rheeder is the man !!
(May 11, 2013 at 17:53)
Meserre got robbed..
(May 11, 2013 at 18:12)
You spelled Norbs wrong.
(May 11, 2013 at 18:39)
Judging by how much this photog was swooning over him in this article, he musta been. no one that has failed to make finals would cover 40% of the recap.
(May 11, 2013 at 23:09)
For some reason all of the non riding pics of the dudes made them look..... Idk kinda slow in the head. Other than that those shots are dope. If soderstroms pic of his bike up his ass isnt pod I'm deleting my PB account! (jk I live on PB)
(May 12, 2013 at 1:45)
Or he just played safe and bitched out.
Go big and win like Pilgrim, go big like Martin and win if you stick it.
Or be top 10 and generic/dull.
(May 12, 2013 at 12:16)
So bouldertom, are you like, a troll or something?
(May 13, 2013 at 15:58)
I was there, and he didn't do very good runs, he fell on the last jump!!!! he didn't do "big tricks", but this dude is awesome!!! one of my favorite, i was disappointed he didn't make it to the finals, but still the best 3

$2500? really? Can't even get a decent bike for that these days. These guys are world-class athletes and should be treated as such.
(May 11, 2013 at 22:53)
(May 12, 2013 at 1:26)
(May 12, 2013 at 2:29)
$10,000 is a nice round number. Euro's, Dollars, Loonies...
(May 12, 2013 at 7:18)
10000 bottles of beer. That's nice.
