 @hoshi: you just went full retard.

 Common guys, Martin got robbed for 2 years! And now he actually got what he exactly deserved! Gold!
  • 6 1
 Is any exist regulation about point for some trick?
like 360 get 6p, flipwhip get 10p, or corked720 get 10..
please explain
  • 6 2
 Doesn't get much cleaner than that. Stomped everything! Congrats Martin, you deserve it.

 @chococlove, they cant do it that way because they base points off of how clean the trick is and what trick it is. a clean 360 would be more impressive to judges than a 360 with a slight foot dab to stay up.

 I like the judging on this. I'm surprised Peter Henke didn't take it with a double flip at the end. Soder had the better run & it was recognized as the better run. Henke killed it though, but ya gotta trick every hit. There's no excuse for sailors & set-ups when you're goin' down a hill. GJ Soder.

 full event replay????
  • 15 2
 I heard a lot of people complain about Soderstrom finishing first but his run was crazy! Ok not much new but a crazy run. And if style counts in these events Martin was well ahead! But i didn't see Genon's run...

 Both Genon and Pilgrim should have been up at least one spot each. I think the judges were a little too impressed with the double backflip.

 martin says he is finally over judged in the end of this video.
  • 3 1
 Martin seems to surprise even if he deserve the win..just like les 2 alpes Slopestyle event

 Nah m8 Norbs did
  • 11 3
 Honestly, that was a questionable judging...
When I compare the run of Pilgrim and Genom to the Henkes run I just can't believe that Peter won. No disrespect,but the backflip from the flat drop is suppose to get more points than the suicide no-hander, Peter didn't do anything special in his run except the duoble backflip (and for those who say it was off-axis: no, it wasn't- rotation was strictly not-corked it was just a difference in the strength of pull in the left and right hand of Peter).
Sam was going 100% and 720 maybe doesn't look as stunning as a double backflip, but I know personally some riders from Polish scene and every and each one of them will say that he'd prefer to try the double backflip on the big jump befor ethe 720.
And the flip tundown onto a dish?
Come on, that's just awful scoring...

I'm not gonna even talk about the Genons run, which almost made me shit my pants...

In the winning run subject except for the 270truckdrier on the wall there was nothing that stood out from all the rest from the other riders. I really like Martin and I remember a few events where he might have score better, but 94.6 for that?
Come on, we've been all seeing the trusk and 3whips from Swed since god knows when, I agree that his style is amazing, but without the 3-triplewhip on the last jump that run was not worth almost 95 points...

Anyway, Sam Pilgrims and Genons run shoul have been scored way higher the Henckes...

 come on pilgrim has no style! he has the tricks but its more like doing them somehow and landing it. södi is a style machine and derserve the win so much! he makes everything looking so sweet

 ya, I haven't been on top of what is happening in slopestyle. Why wasn't Brandon there?

 hes trying to have more fun this year and do lots of riding and filming. hes more focused on joyride im thinking
  • 1 0
 Yeah, which is understandable for he has dominated for two years. He deserves to take some time away from competition and just enjoy himself on his bike with friends.
  • 10 1
 same song for every vid... why?!
  • 2 0
 They used it for everything so I'm guessing it's the "official" song of CFF.

 Don´t think that Henke deserves the 2nd place except of the double flip there where nothing special... is there a full recap anywhere wanna see logan peat!
  • 2 1
 "nothing special" who do you think you are to say whats special ?
  • 2 0
 Drop Suicide No Hander, 360, Backflip Combo Drop, Backflip Combo, Corked Backflip, 360, Doublebackflip.... don´t think thats a creative run, no opposite stuff only backflip combo´s....
  • 2 2
 dont you think you shouldnt talk about somebodys creativity on such a burly course when you could not even straight air any of those features ?
  • 5 2
 Martin did a backflip for once in his run! I think that's the key man, too many 360s and now he goes upside down and wins! Learn opposite tailwhips and dominate!
  • 5 1
 he can oppo whip pretty dialedly
  • 1 0

 New FMB judging scheme, let the riders who didn't qualify score the runs!

 Or at least it could be "Riders Choice Award" and make it worth some points and cash

 Why does Soderstrom even worry about having his goggles if he never even wears them?!
  • 1 0
 I don't do DJ, or trick air, I'm a DH guy. But love watching this slope style... What's it called when they 360 with the front end pointing down? That looks wicked! Haha. Proper love it

 Disapointing crowd, so few people
  • 1 0
 hard to really see the crowd. most spectators on hillside that the run is filmed from. But, of course, will never compare to Crankworkx. I dont think the promoters do a good job getting more industry folks here. Not much else for the fans to do, so no other reason to come up to the festival.
  • 2 0
 All the spectators are on the other side on the hill

 There were a fair bit of people there, just a bunch of sally's. No one was yelling or getting crazy. I was pretty disappointed in the crowd. But the event was incredible! Hope they continue to come back, and it starts to get the turnout it deserves...
