 Even if Norbs pulled a double back on his Demo at Rampage he would still come second ...

 its norbs, he gets robbed
  • + 41
 It wouldn't be Rampage without a little highway robbery Wink

That was sick and incredibly smooth. This has already been the best Nine Knights yet. I can't wait to see the edits that come outta this.

 f*cking smart, am i right by saying that was the new kona operator carbon he was on? would kill a puppy for one of them.
  • - 12
 Kona Operator, yet sponsored by Giant. I am dizzy.
  • + 6
 .....Bizet has never been on Giant as far as I know. He was riding a Kona Operator when he took second last year at Rampage and his hard tail is a Kona....
  • + 9
 He is sponsored by Kona, and it's the first time he ride the Operator Carbon, because Kona give him this bike just 2 days before Nine Knights ^^
  • + 10
 Those aren't Bizet's sponsors, they are the event sponsors.

 I would love to see it in full speed rather than slowed down. See how fast he has to pull the big bike round. Amazing. Awesome. Other superlatives beginning with A.

 Not to diminish the obvious radness behind the Double Backflip, but every few years another guy lands this and the mountain bike media proclaims it's a first. Last year it was Paul Bas Lands First Natural Terrain Backflip! This year homeboy did it on a DH bike. Frankly, I don't care what you call it. Put it in an edit and make it the banger.
[Reply]
  • + 7
 Now we need a triple
  • + 6
 yeah after the second rotation, you're just like: hey, where is the third one??
[Reply]
  • + 5
 I think this finally solves the question about what wheel size is better ...
  • - 1
 Bingelli got third at rampage last year...also, BETTER FOR WHAT?
  • + 1
 oh , im sorry did he do a double backflip with 650b wheels ?
  • + 0
 No, but he did a single backflip. Did anyone else do a double backflip at rampage?
  • + 1
 Pastrana doubled up full 450cc at the xgrampage. This years rampage is going to be totally bossanova!

 Seems that drop out of the castle was HUGE! If it looks big on film, it has to be super huge in real life.
