Picture of the Month is an article showcasing the best Pictures of the Day from the month before. We take the most viewed photos that were uploaded in the previous month and give you the top 7 more or less...<br><br>Another month down, and another selection of amazing shots that have made it into the Picture of the Month. I'd first like to start by clarifying something that gets asked about almost every month. The way the POM works is the photos are ranked by number of views in the month that they're uploaded. It has nothing to do with overall number of view, or when the photo was POD. So if you upload an image on September 30th, and it becomes POD on October 10th, it may have a lot of views in October, but it's only eligible for Septembers POM because that's when it was uploaded. This means that if you have a photo (or a video) that you think has a chance at POM or VOM you should upload it in the first few days of the month, and definitely not at the end of the month. With that said here are the most viewed photos that were uploaded in October...

Semenuk stomped his huge transfer cliff drop in practice. It was breathtaking to watch shoot. one of the gnarliest lines ever

Sideways. Nico Vink may not be a household name for free riding but he s been kicking around the World Cup circuit for a long time. And he can throw down a mean whip. Will that translate into Rampage glory You got me. But he s got a billy goat line up at the top that I want no part of.

 Just nitpicking here, but shouldn't they be in descending order, so when we scroll down the page we go up in 'rankings'?

 I am so glad that both Kirill Benderoni and Brandon Semenuk appeared in this top five. I hope these guys will meet some day and do something out of this world. Smile

 Semenuk is a nutter for sure. When is NBC going to show the whole event? Think I heard it was Dec. 8th? Or is it this month?

 Amazing... The most viewed photos on Pinkbike were Also POD's... mind blown. But on a serious note, that Semenuk Rampage photo still blows my mind.

 only if he could land it
  • + 2
 He did land it... twice! (at least, im sure more in practice), he just couldn't complete a run!
  • + 1
 did he crash it on his run?
  • + 2
 He crashed on both his runs in the finals, but not on the jump pictured. One on a pretty small jump, simple mistake. One he crashed doing a back flip.
