  Martin Soderstrom. After watching Martin's just released video edit we were all expecting to see him on the podium, unfortunately the Swedish trick machine crashed during practice on a barspin to tailwhip. Luckily he's mostly all right with just a concussion and a few stitches, he should be back at the next tour stop in Switzerland. Heal up quickly!

 umm if andreu got 3rd why isnt he in the fmb rankings?
  • - 36
flag henry-turner (Apr 3, 2012 at 12:15) (Below Threshold)
 because he didnt deserve it.
  • + 3
 There are even riders who wasnt there and appear in the rankings, and other as Andreu that doesnt appear and they were there...
But sure Andreu was 3th!

Anybody knows why?
  • + 7
 I think it is because they haven't paid the the inscription to enter at the FMB ranking
  • + 4
 No, Andreu doesn't compete because he doesn't like to compete. He hate competitions. He only wants to ride, not to compete.
  • + 1
 they pay him to enter the fmb, like they did last year? and @PabloCrew stop copying his interview, he competes but just rides as he would normally, so technically he still competes but doesnt get competitive he just has fun

 its szymon godziek, not simon....

 Sad for MacDuff. Qualified for the finals but went down in practice... Destroyed the rear wheel and injured himself. Matt's a warrior we'll see him back at these events soon!

 fmb top ten will look like that till the first north american contest...then all those european boys will start to fall in the standings.
  • + 2
 probably Sam will take a part in most of american events so he remain at top3. besides that a lot of events takes place in europe so others riders will stay at top10
  • + 2
 There are no diamond events in Europe though...

 its true...the winners of the gold events jump the point standings so quickly

 is it mandatory for dirt jumpers to dress like douchey bros with oversized energy drink caps when they're not riding?
  • + 12
 I don't think it's mandatory as not all of them are wearing it...why? what do you wear when you're not riding, or in-between runs in the FMB World Tour?
  • + 2
 DH guys are the same. They're just reppin' their sponsors. That's no excuse for the horrible skinny jeans though.

Doesn't matter anyway, it's the riding that counts and these guys all kill it. Nuff said Wink
