 For a second there I thought Semenuk had changed his name to one that doesn't start with semen. If my name was Semenuk, or Penisuk, or Spermuk, I would definitely change it! Wouldn't you?

 As usual, an awesome event! Darren puts a lot into this, and was great in the whip off comp, although Messere stole the show!! Check Genon's run out, it was awesome! Jordie goin big as well. But it was Semenuks day today.

 Liam Wallace was the official amateur winner behind Logan peat and Carson storch when he got third. Looks like he ended up 14th. Not bad at 15 years old

 Oppo is where its at bitch
  • 14 7
 Obviously opposite tricks are harder but generally they will never look as good as their regular counterpart. I would rather see a completely different regular trick than a crappy looking opposite one. There are so many more regular tricks to be done yet it seems the progression of runs are slowing down because everyone fills up there hits with opposite tricks. Oppo is not where it is at, it should be reserved for edits.
  • 10 5
 I disagree. Oppo tricks are indeed progressing the sport. Semenuk is pushing everyone to essentially double their bag of tricks. And style is everything. The best of the best can do oppo tricks just as stylish as regular. To the general pop who don't follow slopestyle but come out to watch a contest, they won't care for oppo cause they just wanna see crazy shit that's visually appealing, but we should appreciate it for its difficulty.

 Shaun Murray (wakeboarding) lost his edge when everyone started doing tricks fakie. While I disliked the transition back then, I do agree it is the progression of the sport - the best should be able to trick both directions.

 Despite sounding like a uk sperm bank with an egotistical sole provider, Brandon is the real deal! Beautiful flow which oozes (probably the name) style and super tech to boot, i observe him as an artist in full flow. Ol' Sammy boi is a lovable try hard with big tricks and loads of talent, but just doesnt have that effortless style which makes him less easy on the eye. Well thats my opinion anyhow which by the way is worth about as much as a fart pretending to be a poo. Big respect to all the riders and yoselves!

Orf ta dig meself a dirt erection and then ride it

Peaceout!

 not over yet but he stands a good chance if he can do well at Rampage...

 The FMB overall thing is kind of anticlimactic this year.... Rheeder and Söderstrom both out injured, then Semenuk popping up to win both Crankworx and take 2nd at XGames, but he's not allowed to earn points.
  • 4 0
 why isnt semenuk allowed to earn points in the fmb tour?
  • 3 0
 Max points are on offer for Rampage (FMB Diamond event = 1000 for the win) and the only riders left in the running for toppling Sam, given both Soderstrom and Reeder are out, are Granieri and possibly Genon (depending on how well Thomas did at Bearclaw's). We can start getting into computations about Sam and Granieri's possible results at Rampage but it very much looks like Sam has the 2013 Tour wrapped up!
  • 1 0
 Semenuck is not registered with the FMB World Tour this year. Therefore, no points.

 finally the Brits are fighting of the Americans and Canadians I have so much respect for all these guys but the Brits are finally starting to give a better fight in FMB well pilgrim is anyway rampage should be interesting to watch as Semenuk was unlucky last year

 Is that so? Where can I find the overall rankings? What is he fails to score at Rampage and Semenuk wins? How many points up for grabs before the end of the series?
  • 1 0
 he does not even have to compete at rampage! he's too far up already furthermore semenuk isn't even listed in this years fmb ranking!!!
  • 1 4
 I just checked the FMB website and it is dated the 10th of July, which I believe is before x-games Munich, Joyride and Bearclaw. That's a first and second at diamond level events and a first at a gold level event for Semenuk. Isn't it like 1000 points for a diamond level win? Dirt mag is claiming Pilgs the winner now too... I hope it is true, but until I see an up to date table I can't believe it!

Imagine if he went to Rampage, already with the series in the bag, no pressure, and let loose with a podium performance just to rub salt into the wound. If I were Semenuk I'd be pissed off about losing to Pilgs, given that he is a better rider, but it serves him right for tossing it off at home when he should have been on the road competing all round Europe like the other guys. Unlucky Sodastream, he could still have bagged second I guess... maybe still can if Rheeder gets good points.
