Why go wide when you can air into the mouth of the chute

 This guy is sick, I love huge mountain riding and Doerfling does it sooo well!!! Love the looseness on the berms, the massive/insane drops, and the peeling of the bead off the rim!!! Yesterday I happened to land a whip at 90 degrees and my bead as well came off a bit, let out some air and pushed it back in no problem...Thought I bent my wheel at first, funny that it just happened yesterday for the first time while I'm sure Doerfling does it multiple times daily haha

 How do you even begin to judge the speed for a drop like that. Deliberately rhetorical.
  • + 3
 Man i gotta say james doerfling is so gnarly,that last drop is ridiculous,i thought it would just have been a rwgular run out after,but he continues his line down the hill,so epic him and garrett buehler are deffinatly my two favourite freeriders comin out of the newschool

 BAD-ASS!!! And as far as I'm concerned...protective gear is for guys that have lots to loose. Like me...workin dad/ husband. Cuz I gotta work on Monday!

 Excellent rider... Really just amazing. Not to stoked about the lack of protective gear though.
  • + 1
 Protective gear is just like strapping on weights when you're skilled. It slows down your movements and fatigues you sooner. I don't think it'll help him too much if he happens to go down, but what do I know? I figure he needs his agility maxed, his muscles fresh, and rely on his confidence, rather than having the risk, of what happens if he goes down, on his mind. I don't know how much he's worked to get to this point, but I doubt he's doing this stuff to figure out what he can do; I think he's doing because he knows he can do it and a crew gives a bit of support and motivation to actually go out and do it.
  • + 1
 I guess I never thought of it like that... Either way the guy can ride!
  • + 1
 protective gear is a personal choice no one should have to wear it.
  • + 2
 Protective gear is a personal choice, though many pros use it selectively. Notice how he uses a neck brace sometimes, and most pros run knee/shin guards. I always wonder if they use more gear guinea pigging stuff off camera.
  • + 3
 he rocks a flannel when he does the backflip to huge descent, thats like the most protective clothing pattern known to man
  • + 2
 your neck and head are the most important to protect
  • + 2
 the pro's snap themselves all the time, watch Red Bull Rampage 2011, it's absolute carnage! I get why they don't wear armour, but they'd bust themselves up a lot less if they wore a bit more than they do!
