So maybe like 30 mins of showing the run, yet missing out on a few killer runs, and an hour of advertisment and interviews, some of which have nothing to do with biking. On the plus side, I was super exited when the commentator knew what a tailwhip was. Maybe there is still hope in this world

Who the fuck watches a 90 minute video of biking when there are plenty of scooter edits on youtube
(Oct 13, 2012 at 21:59)
wow you complain too much. you should be happy we get this for free.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 2:21)
wow iBikeERday you've gotta have the most neg props all up over the last couple of months of news!
(Oct 14, 2012 at 3:00)
Nah i think Protour takes the cake on that one.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 8:02)
yah when i think neg probs i just think protour
(Oct 14, 2012 at 12:37)
I guess they're just trolls (iBikeERday and Protour) since no one can be so stupid
(Oct 14, 2012 at 12:50)
Never heard of Protour who is he (or she)
(Oct 14, 2012 at 18:36)
hahahaha Protour is absolute gold! he's a dude that thinks he's right and trys to back it up with 4+ paragraphs of crap
(Oct 14, 2012 at 18:47)
f*ckn' spot on ^

Everyone always wants main stream coverage, then this happens. Be careful what you wish for.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 6:54)
I agree. Let's just keep this sport to ourselves. Mainstream sucks. All this will lead too is more Gapers in my way at Whistler. Why is everyone so concerned with this sport growing? I love it the way it is right now.
(Oct 15, 2012 at 8:12)
I love it the way it was 5 years ago. If I ever see Sal in person I will tell him to quit degrading our sport and just go away.
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:32)
This was soooo bad... You would think that Redbull would do a better job for TV...
(Oct 13, 2012 at 22:22)
I didn't think it was much different than any other extreme sports show. Keep in mind this isn't just MTBers watching, it's old people, young people, and people who've never even ridden a bike before. They have to explain everything, and they need to have ads; how else does it come out for free? The fact that they have two pro BMXers is pretty decent - commentators know what's going on. Yeah the one's voice was a little over the top, but you gotta keep people entertained, that's the name of the game. I'm just pumped this was on TV and they're spreading the word on one of the best sports in the world.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 1:20)
At least it's not Si Patton commentating...
(Oct 14, 2012 at 6:52)
I hate the people that this video is catered too. These people will never be like us. They are just not cool, and do not have their priorities straight. They watch videos like this and think of it as circus stunts.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 18:37)
explain things? sal doesnt know anything let alone explain it!
(Oct 15, 2012 at 11:13)
LOL at tetonlarry. People who think they are cool generally aren't! I'd say that slopestyle and circus stunts are pretty similar. It's not exactly chess is it?
(Oct 17, 2012 at 15:39)
So you think the mainstream people who don't mountain bike, and instead watch organized sports invented a hundred years ago are cool?
(Oct 13, 2012 at 21:18)
Enough with the god danm bs commercials that arent even about biking. The 10 minute commercials to 1 frikin run the you miss out on the most amazing run! fucking redbull.. If your gonna do this do a better job!
(Oct 13, 2012 at 21:56)
Yea, this sucked.
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:05)
this was an awesome way to show the 'other side' of mtn biking, i live far away from mtns and a biking community right now, with joyride on nbc i was able to show my friends my addiction
(Oct 14, 2012 at 0:16)
lame. Out of the 10+ commentators they had. 1 of them knew what they were talking about.
"that wood jump is made out of wood" (really!?)
I can't wait to laugh at the shit they come up with from rampage.
red bull signature series has ruined mountain biking.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 18:38)
nbc ruined mountain biking, red bull progressed it...
(Oct 14, 2012 at 19:59)
yeah I'm not liking MTB going mainstream....
(Oct 14, 2012 at 15:51)
I can't believe there are so many negative posts! Maybe your expectations are too high, cause it was just about how I expected a major network sports broadcast to be. Of course there's gonna be some cheesy moments and advertisements. I enjoyed the commentary, and appreciate the production effort to get that much good footage of some awesome riders killing it!
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:27)
this just ruined Joyride, I wish they had the actual commentators who knew what they were talking about not this guy.
(Oct 15, 2012 at 19:55)
Sal master kalia or how ever u spell ur name. WTF why couldnt they just have an actual mtn biker present this. this is the reason I dont watch the xgames cuz this guy has a hard on for shaun white lol. maybe Brian Lopes?would have worked better or hey Brett Tippie
(Oct 14, 2012 at 4:19)
Ha 36:30 messere's cup of water gets quickly swapped for a can of red bull, we saw that!!
(Oct 14, 2012 at 4:50)
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:55)
Bahahaha missed runs, getting ages and trick names wrong... this is just getting better and better as I watch it!
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:04)
Those jumps are look huge on my phone, I went there in person and they are 5x that size. They got balls
(Oct 14, 2012 at 12:51)
canned applause every time someone landed a feature, so weak. I had to turn it off cause it really was that bad.
(Oct 15, 2012 at 20:01)
I wonder if Bestwick feels like a pussy after watching this lol? I know BMX is hard and has its share of injuries but come on this makes BMX look elemetry
(Oct 16, 2012 at 8:27)
What happend with 2nd runs of Semenuk, Soderstrom and Messere? and Messere got robbed ...Frontflip to nose-manual without front brake!
(Oct 15, 2012 at 12:20)
can somebody tell me the first soundtracks title?
btw it was really sick event
(Oct 15, 2012 at 2:16)
iv had the pleasure of being on the peak 2 peak roof a few times! awesome views
(Oct 14, 2012 at 2:10)
how did sal get this job? knows next to nothing about our sport
(Oct 15, 2012 at 8:08)
Hes more annoying than Pauly Shore, Gilbert Goffried, or Richard Simmons.
(Oct 15, 2012 at 13:45)
protour I'll have to agree with you on this one
(Oct 15, 2012 at 20:04)
hes the ryan Secrest of xgames lol. Which AKA DBAG lol
(Oct 14, 2012 at 2:58)
Great riding ruined by bs ads and long intros
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:03)
just got me more disappointed about semenuk
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:25)
why? the defeats are part of all sports, and the guy also is human
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:46)
Was nice to have Jamie Bestwick announcing, he's a legend! Definitely super bummed about Semenuk in Whistler and Rampage. I would have really like to see the runs he had up his sleeve, changing the style of riding for sure!
(Oct 14, 2012 at 12:08)
i hate the commentary.
(Oct 14, 2012 at 4:17)
how is the first song called(Original version)?
(Oct 14, 2012 at 6:06)
I think the commentators are pretty good! I've heard worse on the fmb live webcasts
(Oct 14, 2012 at 8:28)
Was that the grillmaster at 4:20?
Below threshold threads are hidden

(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:22)
sal is so fucking annoying
(Oct 13, 2012 at 19:29)
I agree how this schmuck that has no experience in any sport that I know of can be the voice of the X games and now crankworx is beyond me...I just threw up in my mouth
