 @ nikoniko pretty sure he was referring to the feel of the event and the laid back attitude, not the course

 Never usually login but this comment gave me a O_o expression...

"Flair: Both rider and bike do a backflip combined with a 180, to land facing back down the ramp. Usually performed on a quarter pipe."

(its called a Flair, pretty old BMX move on a vert/quarter)

This is what a flip 180 looks like, sir!:d Made it just to show you the difference.:d

 @nicklearse: I think he knows what a flair is, what i think he was referring to was that messere's flair looked like a straight flip until he was almost completely upside-down and then he pulled around the 180 super late, all amounting to a ridiculously sick looking flair.

 Excellent footage and angles here. We can clearly see the size of the jumps. The tricks are visible and slowed down to add that elament of Radical! This would have been a great VOD. Probably tomorrow we might see it? Hope so. Anthony, man, that kid is all bike and no human- just goes in and rides and hopes he lands it! No fear. Aweosme! Congrats Semenuk-

 Excellent over view of the contest and the riders. So good to see the stoke in the rider's faces at this event - Great work to all involved!

 that was the best course i have seen this season, imo they should let one specific rider each design and build all future courses in any location of their choice, that would be sick, well done darren your course is the dogs mate. and well done all involved, awsome job...

 Front-flip off the boner log -- bad-ass!
360 up the step-up -- bad-ass!
Bearclaw broke his back, then comes back to shred like that -- bad-ass!

 semunuk is the best slopestlye rider hands down. he does not throw the must giant tricks down but he rides everything so smooth and so big
  • 4 0
 I would agree with you 2 years ago but, he has his flipwhips dialed now and that was the only styled double whip I've ever seen plus that cork 720/ backflip 360 whatever you call it he threw down at 26 trix best trick.

 He brought it back and landed it, no problem at all, every time. Actually I think he might have slipped a pedal once, but that's about it...

 Front flips are ugly. I'm sure they're really hard to do, but they stink.
