 Where's Semenuk?

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"

 You spelled Norbs wrong.

 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.

 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)

 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.

 $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.

 $10,000 is a nice round number. Euro's, Dollars, Loonies...
