 Whoa...did anyone else do a double-take at that ridiculous superman by Lacondeguy?
  • 15 1
 i did 3. that was stupid.
  • 53 1
 or the 15 year old doing a double backflip
  • 7 1
 I've waiting days to see that trick on film, and man it was worth waiting for!
  • 35 1
 yep, lacondeguy's 100% stretched supermans are in my opinion far more impressive than flip whips etc. he has definitely got them down!!
  • 6 1
 been riding our motorbike a bit recently have we Andreu?
  • 5 1
 The extension by Andreu was definitely taken to the next level. Is there a full clip of best trick yet?
  • 21 1
 That was more like a tsunami than a superman...Impressive.

 where was Mike Montgomery?

 andreu has got fmx on the brain

 I agree with suicide downhiller defo a tsunami... calling it a superman is almost an insult to how unbelievably sick that looks. Nice to see soderstrom doing well and semenuk not winning

 How do the riders hold out for that many jumps? I mean, thats ridiculous that they can stomp that many tricks in a row! that was like 3 or 4 flairs from pilgrim alone!
  • 3 1
 sam killed that course!

 Semenuk looked so out of it on the podium
  • 1 0
 his crash was gnarly, got knocked right out Razz

 @andyf7 Andru didn't even land the big superman in the video...

 That barspin to nac was SICK.
  • 2 1
 I'm sorry, i missed the live stream, but would anyone care to fill me in on why Messere didn't win. I mean, a frontflip and double back!?!?!? was the rest of his run crap or did he crash or something?
  • 1 0
 how did andru do in the end?
  • 9 1
 he fell and missed a whole section Frown
But am I the only one freaking out over pilgrims "mini" Flair?? that thing was insane! Soderstroms 360 in and a triple whip. Insane..
  • 2 0
 was only a double whip, but still creative to make a 360 drop in in the best trick district Smile
  • 3 0
 That superman was in-sane (that's an extra pause between the in and sane parts of the word).
  • 2 0
 messere slid out on a berm or something i believe than missed some jumps but than just went for the double backflip.
  • 1 0
 So sick, but how come none of the sickest tricks ended up in the top 3? (like the huuuuuge double backflip, the big frontflip drop, etc)
  • 1 0
 because those were both by anthony and he did skipped sections because he crashed both runs
  • 1 0
 Too bad! That kid will be such a big name once he gets more dialed (not crashing I mean). His tricks were definitely the sickest!
  • 2 1
 @Bjammin
The runs were not about 1 trick, when you watched Sam's runs, in fact all the top 3 they were different class.
Variety, style, smoothness, implementation, how they used the course etc. were all scored
Messere's street section was poor, his sketchy (comparative) landings compared to the top 3 also got him marked down.
He was 20 points off the pace, the judging was good as the 100 points was broken into sections and the scores for each section were put up live as the riders completed the section.
He struggled to maintain his flow, from memory, missing the dirt section on run 1 and nearly failing to get onto the bowl on run 2, where others were tricking up onto the bowl.
End of the ramp district

The great thing about this competition is that 1 trick, 1 style was never going to win it, they were all pushing hard.

 i hate watching Sam Pilgrim ride, hes a BMXer stuck on a hard tail, he only did well here since it wasnt a true mtb course. I'd Like to see him try and ride Rampage
  • 10 1
 i'd like to see you try and ever ride half as well as the people you chirp you arrogant son of a bitch.

 While I love watching Semenuk ride, Pilgrim kills it to just in a different way. I think mostly due to the fact that there isn't many mountains where he came from.
