[neg props starting.....now]
In other words, I'm just expressing my amazement by the photo. Don't take things so literally.
- They're just props, stop making such a scene about them.
- If that kind of riding is overrated I'd KILL to see how you ride. I would literally kill to see you ride.
- I don't see anyone saying that Elliot deserves to win, In fact I'm fairly certain I'm expressing my enjoyment of the photo and the photographers work. So yeah, you're 100% right this is about the photographer, which is why I'm showing appreciation for their work. The whole reason I pointed out that he rode it out is because I've seen a TON of photos where riders are attempting similar moves and they don't ride out of it. It happens more often than not.
I really don't understand why you're so defensive over the fact that I really like this photo and am impressed by it and the riding. When did that become a crime?
I'm not a professional rider I haven't even ever made a single podium so I'm also not that fast or technically mastered.
When I think of riding something out, I don't think of using a foot to bounce back up. Not saying it isn't hard to do but just calling it what it is. Of the hundreds of pictures we all have seen here of people just before they crash and it looks so cool, this sure is one that deserves the notice that he didn't crash. Ride it out, I don't think so. He's just overly aggressive smashing his bike into the berm/dirt.
Hopefully this wasn't too defensive for ya :-P I'm just discussing this with you :-)
About the props, it was a general remark since I got 3 of them.
Then again imo Paris Gore should knock out Sterl. However i don't think that is going to be the case as people will think ooo roost, and totally dismiss the creative and technical ability to Paris' shot. f*cking hate it when that happens
Some really nice photos there. Love the perspective from David Long's shot. Wasn't there something like that in a movie (can't remember the name now, where it changes through the seasons in the woods)
But my 2 Favs (Rosso Damien & Sterling Lorence)
The last round is going to be: Stef Candé vs. Craig Grant
